Super close to central Cardiff whilst not being noisy. The employees were awesome.

Everything. They have a well equipped spotless kitchen, which is a excellent size, really excellent cooker with plenty of gas tops and a huge oven, plenty of room inside the refrigerator to store food. The refrigerator is actually quite a huge one. Extremely excellent d&écor throughout. Nice dining location and outside location with their very own herbs growing. Lavender and rosemary. Other large potted plants making use of restricted space. Awesome showers. Comfortable beds. Wireless that works all of the time:) Effortless going knowledgeable warm and friendly staff. Remarkable breakfast. Has to be seen. Nice lounge. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this hostel. I will use it again when in town and recommend it to all.

I loves this place. Really felt like i was chilling at home. Great, large living area thats separate from rest of hostel but still felt cosy. Lots of books and dvds to watch on the massive telly. Plenty of showers, toilets and bath rooms with both. Its over nearly 5 floors and also the showers are always below rooms so you never realky get disrupted by individuals inside the morning showering on your floor. The breakfast is advertised as &&"continental&&" but its sooo much better. Theyve got really yummy looking pastries, tasty cereals and loads if different kinds if yoghurt, jams, spreads etc. as nicely as juice and no cost tea and coffee. The kitchen and dining area are also really great sizes. The whole location is brilliant really.

Such a pretty hostel. Friendly staff, superb location a brief stroll from the city and near to transport in and out of Cardiff. Clean hostel, great showers etc, slightly small rooms but cozy and great beds. Breakfast is AMAZING and the public facilities are good. I&'ve stayed here twice now, once 8 years ago and it&'s great. I&'d go back in a heartbeat.

This hostel is like a home away from home. It&'s such a warm, inviting &&& friendly hostel - it&'s great! The hosts are lovely, &&& it&'s the only hostel I&'ve been to that gives out no cost chocolate cake! The breakfast is really decent. &&& if you&'re missing your pets from home, they have a hostel cat lounging about.

The crew was awesome. They served an awesome breakfast and they even served occasionally something for free i the evening like choclate cake. The rooms where realy nice, especially the kitchen was awesome as nicely as the hostel was directly situated at the river.

It&'s location is excellent and straightforward to access, the facilities are well maintained and are far more than sufficient. The employees are friendly, helpful and welcoming. The other travellers were also extremely friendly!

Good location, right opposite to the stadium and castle. The staffs were warm and friendly and helpful. This is one of the greatest hostels I&’ve stayed in. :)

Location, hospitality, security, really social - great! Breakfast is included and is proper!

  Fiona M... 

I was so impressed with this place! Location is perfect, being just a stones throw from the Central Station (as properly as really pretty being on the river) and also the staff were fab! The building has a lot of character and feels really modern day comfy inside. Loved the bathroom space and privacy (makes all of the difference) and also the rooms were warm and cosy. Plus anywhere that delivers unlimited no cost tea gets my vote ;-)! I would definitely recommend a stay here.

A lovely welcoming location to stay! Great breakfast and friendly employees and cat! Ideal location to stay.
