    .

    We had a very pleasant stay here. The rooms were clean, could maybe do with a lick of paint and the pillows could be a bit better. Other than that great value for money and would stay again if in town.

    Nothing was unique about it really, it was a little cheaper than others, not the best location, but not bad, the staff were helpful, nice sleep and comfy beds

    Like the soundtrack in the background at breakfast time. It played rumba from DR Congo.

    For a hostel and the price, this place is excellent. Great location in Cardiff. If your expecting a proper hotel, you'd be dissapointed, but this is a classy hostel with great staff and faclities. Good bar too!

    Easy check in, clean room, large single room, perfect size shower. Close to central Cardiff. Guest weren’t friendly but that’s not a reflection of the hostel. Staff were nice. I suggest a drink at the bar.

    Good location

    This hostel is in a great location, the room facilities are fine and it’s great value for a city centre property. However, it was far too hot in the room and the only window we could open was a large patio door style.
