  • The bed was of ridiculously low quality. The mattress was so thin I couldn't sleep on my side. Also ,t he curtains did absolutely nothing to keep any light out. I would definitely not stay here again.

  • The wifi was weak. The day I checked out, I forgot my sweater and a girl that was at the same room gave it to the receptionist. When I went there to take it back, he told me it was lost. This is unacceptable.

  • Such a nice hostel, with a big, clean kitchen and really friendly staff! There are also several common rooms and you meet many nice people. Really liked it =)

  • The staff is very friendly and informative. Daniel recommended I go see Castle Coch, and I did. A marvel. Wouldn't have done so without his insight into castles and medieval history. This hostel was clean, vibrant (loved the color scheme), and it was very easy to socialize with people because of the layout and activities provided (shared kitchen, eating spaces, lounge, board games, etc.) Nomad is also a short and casual walk from the city center and Cardiff Castle. Thank you for the nice stay!

  • Great stay, comfy bed and a nice airy room The lone staff member looked a bit stressed but was very accomodating! Excellent value for money Only negative was there were not enough sockets in the room for one per person so we all had to rotate charging phones etc
