It truly doesn't get better this, free breakfast thrown in too! Sep 05, 2015
Hostels truly don't come better than this! It's got a dream location - nestled somewhere in between a row of brownstone houses that wouldn't look out of place in Kensington or Newbury St., the hostel has an old world house charm. Right across it is the proverbial river, and across it stands the majesty of Cardiff's rugby stadium. The hostel is about 10 minutes' walk from the railway station, and very easy to find. But ALL that is just location.

Let's get to the finer aspects shall we?

The interiors - all too cosy! there's a fairly well stocked kitchen, a cosy yet social enough dining room, a really nice TV room tucked away by the reception and a wonderfully spacious and quiet garden. Ample space and choices to socialise as you can see.

The hostel is very safe - complete with a door code and keys for each bedroom.

Which brings us to the bedrooms - they're quite small and I'd say whilst they're well equipped with lockers and such, there's very little space for luggage, and one has to trip over at times to make it to the bed. But that's a minor concern given the fact that most folks here are backpackers with very little luggage to begin with.

The bathrooms and toilets are on a mezzanine floor which was quite a problem, especially at night. But again, a minor inconvenience.

The kitchen is well equipped, lots of storage space and they offer free breakfast, as well as unlimited tea and coffee. Very handy, and generally the breakfast spread is HUGE for a hostel!

All in all, one of the BEST hostels I've stayed in. This reminded me of a hostel I stayed at 5 years ago in Brighton, except that this one is roomier and trendier.
