My sister and I booked to stay here last night having travelled from North Wales to see Byonce. On arrival we were allocated beds which were unmade with dirty bedding on them. We went back to reception to tell them and they seemed completely un-interested and just told us to chose a bed each that was made up. So we...

This is hotel is a backpackers delight, w a few sacrifices. The location is ideal, it is directly in the middle of all the action, in fact You will most likely walk rite by the outside mistaking it for a bar your first time. There are more restaurants and bars then people on these streets. Needless to say we had...

Called in for a few drinks before Rod Stewart concert, nice relaxing atmosphere with interesting decor, drinks very reasonable for city centre and staff cheerful and polite definately worth a visit. There is a bunk house above for travellers and would make an excellent base for exploring cardiff.

Have never written anything on trip advisor before, but with how rude and arrogant the staff were I wouldn't recommend anyone staying at this place, beds were awful, not clean at all. How they think it's acceptable to have one shower for a whole floor when we alone had 16 people in one room is a joke. Toilets were not...

I had a wonderful time at this hostel. The location was awesome! The rooms are quite large and adequate. I was spoiled by the quietness and lack of roommates on the last two nights. They were working on the showers on my level, and on my last morning all showers were not in service and I had to walk to...

I stayed here and was greeted by THE rudest sarcastic man. If you don't want to work with people I reccomend you don't work in a hostel. He couldn't tell us any information like if we could pay for a later check out time and just wanted to repeat himself like a Broken record. But at least he felt like...

So this place would be okay if you were just going for a one night stay. Unfortunately i found the staff very rude and unhelpful. The room we stayed in was very small and i came in to see two people on my bed. Which was down to the organization of the hostel which isn't ideal but luckly i didn't...

Love this place. If you're lucky you might be able to grab a bed but if you don't it's stull a fun and enjoyable place to start a night out in Cardiff. Staff are lovely and there's a great atmosphere.

The place itself is lovely, it has character, it's location is definitely wonderful since it's at the city centre near the Cardiff Castle and many Arcades and Markets, also for Rugby fans near the Millennium Stadium. As regards the room I've stayed in, it was truly cold and it's view is directly into the main street so during the weekends...
