Perfect for a night in the city ”

A small group of us stayed in YHA Cardiff for the night. Hotel was in prime location and it was easy to get a taxi into town. The staff were fantastic and gave us all the information we needed. I would highly recommend for others to stay here. Great value for money.

Hostel Price, Hotel Quality ”

We paid £45 a night for a premium quadruple room, which is much larger than we expected. Spacious, comfortable bed, towels and hair dryer are provided, and there’s even a television. 20 mins walk from Cardiff Central Station (not difficult to find; the hostel sent an email with clear directions), 10-15 mins walk to city centre. Very pleasant stay, could not ask for a better recommendation.

Excellent hostel”

The hostel is very clean and tidy, it occupied the whole building similar to a motel or hotel. My 4 people room has its own shower and toilet, just likes a hotel room. It requires 15 min walk from the station, 15-20 min walk to Cardiff castle and city centre. Very comfortable and you won't regret to stay at this place.

Clean, comfortable

My friends and i arrived at this hostel with our expectations very very low after our experience with YHA Liverpool. But this hostel left us speechless. The room was hotel quality. Soft beds, TV, study desk, clean and sparkly bathroom. We wished we stayed a few more nights!
