Near Millennium Stadium Feb 11, 2011
It's a hostel in the main, although it does have private, even en-suite, rooms. I stayed in a 4-bed dormitory.
They claim that 'cleanliness' is their watchword and it's very apparent. In particular the showers and toilets are kept much cleaner than in many hostels.
The dormitory was very small and the light pretty weak so that I should not really want to be sharing with strangers. On the other hand it is great for groups taking the whole room, I definitely think women should try to avoid saring with unknown men, given the experiences related by some (horrible though not criminal).
The buffet breakfast is outstanding for a hostel: 4 types of serial, summer fruits, yoghurts, croisants, pan de chocolat, fruit, granary and white bread with several toasters, marmalade, jams, nutella, peanut butter, honey. I was never hungry until well into the afternoon.
To cap it all, the Millennium Stadium is directly opposite - only lacking a footbridge across the Taff!
The lounge, kitchen and dining room were all good.
I'm afraid the price given on the website iis misleading. We paid exactly double - but it is still excellent value for its location.
