  • They have triple bunk beds which is an unusual sight but have the disadvantage of being very short on space so no room for sitting properly.

  • I really like the location of the hostel, but despite being its strong point it is also the weakest as some dorms are located near the heavily trafficked road that leads to the train station.

  • Lovely hostel with a great atmosphere and perfect location right in centre of Cardiff (if you are fun of night life, perfect, otherwise it`s a bit crazy street). Friendly staff will help you with all your queries and even look after your bags after check out for a while. We were really happy!

  • On the plus side the hostel is located relatively close to the train station. However, considering that the dorms are right above a bar, it's likely you'll have to stand some pretty unruly fellow guests.

The kitchen is pretty poorly equipped, so don't think about actually cooking anything yourself. The toilet floors were pretty much always flooded.

It makes you feel like you’re slipping into a cadaver drawer at the morgue. Showers have no space for clothes or towel. You literally have to leave everything on your bed and walk naked t
