Property Description

Welcome to Mrs Potts Backpackers! If you're looking for some beautiful yet affordable accommodation in the heart of Cardiff's city centre, look no further! Mrs Potts hostel is perfect for anyone curious to visit the Welsh capital, Cardiff, and experience the celebrated Welsh hospitality.

Located in the heart of the city on St Mary's Street, Mrs. Potts is a retreat from bustling city life but perfectly located so it is only a few minutes walk from all the main attractions of Cardiff such as the beautiful and historic castle, the national museum, theatres and our epic Millennium stadium. We are only 20 minutes away from Cardiff bay too, which offers beautiful views of the bay, boat trips, bay blasts and river bus transport to try out, more restaurants and bars to delve into, galleries and theatres to excite, and many seasonal events and festivals that run all year round.

Our rooms are all 4 or 6 bed dorms so you have plenty of personal space when you need it here or equally, the opportunity to meet fellow travellers where you can exchange stories of your adventures.

WARNING! INFESTED WITH BED BUGS!!! AVOID AT ALL COSTS. I booked one night just to get to Heathrow early the next morning. I left the hostel with 36 bites all over my body. All of my bags are currently quarantining in the back of my car. Bed bugs are incredibly hard to get rid of, and their bites itch much, much worse than mosquito bites. please don't make the same mistake as I did. Also, there's no working wifi. Not as bad as the bed bugs, but still wanted to mention.

Pros: - Location - Privacy curtains for beds - Locks on doors - Storage lockers - Outlets near beds Cons: - Dirty. Lockers on floor available, but with dirt/spiders/cobwebs, I opted to sleep with my luggage on my bed - Noisy beds - Light in my bunk did not work - Staff are not available overnight, and random folks sleep on the furniture in the lobby area - No way to keep windows open, no air con. Miserably hot overnight during heat wave. Wouldn’t recommend for more than one night

Disgusting, no deep cleaning of the restrooms and old thin mattresses where you can feel the springs in bed. Pictures depict the layout, but not existing conditions.
