    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.

    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.

    Great for the price I booked for ! Couldn’t complain!”

    It was a fab location and only a £4taxi ride into the centre. The facility is a hostel but I had a family room which was a great size ! There is no tea or coffee facilities in the room but a bar downstairs so you can go down to get refreshments there. Only point I’d say is as the hotel is cheap there was a lot of noise thru the night of people who’d been out drinking returning back quite loud. But all in all I’d stay again!

    The price was half the days that I was there. So! A fair one. Nice room as in an hotel with good tv, full nice washroom (but only liquid soap and no towels) but as many as 4 persons at the time. I didn't eat there or use the Wifi. Some garbage at the entrance(near the street). I forgot an important item. 2 weeks after Carly did spend 15 minutes to listen me then finally found it.
