    Great location, I parked my bicycle in safety inside, friendly helpful chatty staff, internet seemingly throughout, various public recreation rooms, large kitchen, TV room, bar, loos and loo / bathroom (with hot shower) combined a useful feature. Lockers and chairs in the 6 person dorm. Wardrobe too. Power points throughout. Can get busy and potentially loud at weekends with party revellers, but it 's Cardiff, so go out and join a party! Planned on a two nights stop over but may well stay longer.

    Friendly staff. Great location, really close to the Queens Street station and 15 minutes walk to the Cardiff Castle. Lots of options to eat and have a night out around, quiet and comfortable place to sleep.

    you can come and go as you please. And it is near to my friend,s house.You can make yourself a hot drink when you want one.

    I booked in for 3 days and on the2nd day, I went back up to my female dorm and there was somebody else going to sleep in my bed. I always leave my bed made, to let anyone know that there is someone sleeping in that bed.But a member of staff must have changed the sheet, and folded the quilt up, so it looked like it was a vacant bed.

    Great reception on first night, young man, very friendly. Good price, clean room - a pleasant enough place to rest between days, and a lovely simple breakfast provided, perfect!

    Man on second night at reception was far from polite; the door was locked and he shouted "door bell!" a few times, even after we had pressed it, then opened the door very reluctantly looking far from welcoming or friendly.

    Had everything you need for a cheap nights stay, we had our own lockable room with clean bedding and sheets, a mirror, and access to the shared bathroom and separate toilets in the hall, there was a kitchen and a games room there also but we didn't need to use these, although it wasn't central, it was only a 10 minute walk to the centre along well lit main roads, if you just need some where cheap and clean to put your head down for the night then this is ideal! Grey value for money!

    Price was really low. Showers where clean. Spacious communal areas.

    We had to change our room after the first night due to another booking for the same room. We weren't notified before hand and it was quite hectic because we had to move the luggage three floors down and up again.

    Nice and clean with free breakfast! The Wifi is fast and easy to connect. It is also in a quiet location close to the city center of Cardiff. I will definitely stay again whenever I visit Cardiff.

    It's difficult to sit in bed if you have the lower bunk bed. If they could raise the upper side so there's enough room for sitting on the lower side. I'm only 5'6 and I had to lie in the bed when reading or using my laptop because there's only one desk available in the shared room.

    Rates

    Staff was rude. No facilities like bigger TV lounges. The location of the hostel is also in like a shady place as it is far from the city centre.

    Cheap, good location. All I cared about really.

    Noisy beds, I mean really noisy. its awkward because I want to roll over but can't without waking up other people in the shared room. Also didn't like the fact that it wasn't clear on booking.com that it was a shared room with five others, not that I minded at all I just wanted a cheap and safe bed to sleep on which I got, just wasn't clear to myself and another lady in the room said the same thing. A more secure luggage system would be nice too, the guys just open the room for me and let me take what I want, they don't really know if I'm taking my luggage or someone else's. and finally, rooms should lock automatically when shut, my roommates didn't lock it and would leave, not very safe.

    The location is okey.

    To many people in one room, I was kept on a room to share with boys I really felt uncomfortable.

    staff was really friendly and helpful. location is in quite place. this hostel is for max 25 people - so I think it is good thing.

    breakfast till 9, but usually breakfast time in most of the hostels is till 10/ this is my personal opinion I just like to sleep a little more
