Score from 1197 reviews Very good
Great locations, groovy interior, bed wS comfy, room was warm (maybe too hot), staff friendly, great bar
Showers were freezing on the first morning tho the 2nd was fine. Door was broken on one shower in the dorm (I stayed here 5 months ago and it was broken then) Bit noisy as room overlooks the street but it's a city centre locations so it kinda goes with the territory.
room location breakfast
Great location, excellent services, very kind and helpful staff. Will definitely recommend it!
The bartender on the night shift is amazing, she was was very friendly and welcoming my entire stay. She's definitely a keeper. Everything is beautiful inside and very cozy 10000% recommend!
They could improve their wifi a little
Too expansive, not enough shower and not in good state
nice staffs, facilities and location.
Perfect location, on the high street, only five mins walk from the station the best location I found amount all hostels I've ever started; the design of the bar area is absolutely amazing; breakfast provided
Bed too low, I coundnt sit up; the tissue box was broken and it constantly hit my head; dulvet too thin I was frozen; no cooking facilits in the kitchen which is creepy down there in the deem basement; no lift.
I love the friendly atmosphere, clean and tidy, the bed sheets smelt really nice and lulled me to sleep. I work in Cardiff and from time to time have to work late or socialise in the lively city centre and this place is perfect, I try to avoid the stuffiness of hotels, bunkhouse is by far better
Gets a little noisey on the weekend but if your out partying you won't notice
It's close to bars, restaurants and to main attractions by foot. Also it is very cozy, clean and comfortable.
Did not use the free wifi. They don't have a baggage locker.
Not allowed to drink alcohol in the room. The selection of alcohol in the bar downstairs is awful. Not allowed to bring your own drink to consume downstairs, bouncers on the door during the night stopping you bringing food or drink at a certain time. Had to be quiet in the night for others DESPITE it being new years eve. Real hippy sort of vibe. Not allowed guests to pop in room during day.
I met this girl in the hostel bar. And I fell in love with her just within a night so pretty much everything else is irrelevant.
I loved everything about the Bunkhouse! The rooms were quiet and comfy, an the downstairs common area was a charming wonderland. It even smelled like Christmas. When you stay at the Bunkhouse (because you have to) make sure you get their Nutella hot chocolate!!
I honestly have NO complaints! Five stars!
comfy beds, clean, warm, good wifi. What more could you ask from a hostel right in the heart of the city?! Oh wait thats right, breakfast! Made me feel at home! Definitely come to stay again. Best value in Cardiff.
bring earplugs with you if you want to sleep past 4am when all the clubs shut you will know about it, the taxi drivers know how to use their horns. Would like to come back when the downstairs has been done up, was a bit dark and dingy down in the cinema area. There were signs up to say they are doing renovations though.
Toilets and showers
Location and staff were great. Prices were also good. Great atmosphere and lovely decor.
No mention of a deposit beforehand. Very uncomfortable third tier bunk; no room as too close to ceiling.
The downstairs bar might be the most cozy and comfy places I have ever seen at a hostel. Yummy hot chocolate and big beds to lounge on! The rooms are typical hostel rooms, small bunks but not bad. The location is great, you are pretty much in walking distance to everything!
I had a very bad experience with the late night door man here which didn't seem to be taken seriously by the manager (he made excuses for physical force) It was such a shame because all the other employees were kind and sweet and extremely helpful. Hopefuly they have resolved this staffing issue.
It was hard to get to sleep with the people in the bars and clubs tell 3am and the shops have lorries restocking up at 6am
The staff were great, accommodation comfortable and warm, location was superb and what i like more than anything is how quirky the hostel is. The decorations and appearance of the hostel were in line with my quirky, warm, welcoming and unusual personality. Ace!
There were quite a few things that didn't work properly or were broken; toilets and lockers, which are the most essential things.
very close to train station. staff are nice.
room is shared with other 17 people which in my option is a bit too much. lower beds have very limited head speace so you can't sit there. and there's no chair in the room. that means there's literally nowhere to sit in the room. only choice is downstairs bar, but even that is a bit too crowded in the evenings. no double glazing while facing the busiest bar street so sleeping can be difficult on weekends.
The location is quite good. The bar downstairs look really cool.
It can be quite noisy outside if you stay here at weekends. You will have incredibly limited space if you have no choices but to choose the middle bed within triple-decker bed. You have to press the button continuously if you need to take a shower more than 30 seconds.
The nicest hostel I've ever stayed in. Never been so sad that I wasn't staying longer. Seriously not a bad thing to say about this place, apart from you'd be crazy to go anywhere else. So good to know I have somewhere great to stay when I'm in Cardiff, because I'm there a lot!
Staff were very friendly, the bar / café area is fun, and the location is very central. Great hostel.
excellent location friendly staff what more could u want
nothing, will b staying next year god willing
