Property Description

We are one of the smaller hostels in Cardiff. Being family owned and run by a brother and sister team, our Cardiff hostel feels more like you are staying with a local family rather than the usual hostel experience.
The breakfast is second to none and is included in the price of your stay. Our full communal kitchen is perfect to keep your healthy meals (and your wallet) in check. We feel that our budget accommodation in Cardiff city centre is the best stay you will have in the UK. But do not take our word for it - we encourage you to check out our reviews to make sure we are the hostel for you. You will find a treasure of things to do in Cardiff and we look forward to giving you a Welsh welcome.

- Great location 5 minutes walk from buses, trains and attractions.
- Friendly Welsh owners
- Incredible free breakfast
- Walking tour 3 times a week
- The wifi is fast, free and covers every inch of the house View House Rules

    Really enjoyed my stay at The River House! Location-wise it's a fairly short walk to the bus stops & train station and handy to the city centre for food options and sight seeing including Cardiff Castle, busses to the Brecon Beacons etc. The hostel was very clean, and had a nice homely atmosphere. The included breakfast is excellent (and when I told them I'm vegan they even provided almond milk!) There was also a locker for every bed, just bring your own padlock. Would definitely stay again!

    omg, this place is easily the best of the 10 hostels I've stayed in during the past few years. There's honestly only great things to be said about River house (though I do wish the check out time wasn't so very early). This place has the best inclusive breakfast I've ever seen in my life - easily beating the breakfasts at any 4 star hotel. Danish pastries, blueberries/wild berries and range of yoghurts plus most cereals,toast and every spread. Place is mega clean too and staff are great!!

    This is a very solid hostel in a very convenient location. Although kinda small the facilities are great, super clean and well equipped. The staff have been more than accommodating and friendly. I had an amazing Easter bank holiday weekend there!
