      Great place to stay. The rooms a huge, there are locked lockers under each bed, and a sink in the rooms. The bathrooms and showers are massive, and come with a hairdryer. The pub, lounge area and cafe are a great place to hang out, or have late night meals. Good location.

      This is a very comfortable and modern hostel. Only complaints are that the toilets weren't on the same floor as my dorm room and the overall atmosphere wasn't as great as hoped for. I think because it was so large and the common areas weren't small enough to pressure you to mix. The beds were very very comfortable and the whole hostel was remarkable clean. The reception staff weren't very friendly though when I tried to reason with them after arriving at 6am due to delayed ferries over from Wales.

      This Hostel was by far the nicest hostel I've stayed in. The breakfast was delicious and satisfying (it came in a little lunch-box type deal). The decorations in the hostel were beautiful! I loved the very short amount of time I was there.

      We spent a restful night in our room with no problems with hallway noise. Eve sleeps in while Jim and Daniel head out early to visit the Kilmainham Gaol which is a famous old prison. While they are touring the prison, I wait for Eve to wake up. Then we head out to find some coffee and breakfast. We saw a good food market across the way yesterday …

      Morning in Cardiff was relaxing and the breakfast included in our room rate at the Premier Inn Cardiff Centre was amazingly good ! We all enjoyed waking up when we wanted and getting ready at our leisure.

      Still, we had plenty of time this morning to visit the Cardiff Castle before hopping on the Baycar bus to the Cardiff Bay area of town …

The lobby facilities of this hostel are excellent. The staff is friendly and super helpful in answering our questions. Our only complaint (besides the hallway …

      I changed rooms this morning and am now in an all-female room. While it is a 10 person room instead of 6, it is spacious, the girls are fun, and there is a full HOT TUB in the bathroom! One of the girls in the room is one that I had met the night previously, so that is fun.
      I went out prepared for more rain, as it has been drizzling the entire …

      When I got off the plane to day and collected by bags, I felt...well, about as amazing as a wet sponge with hair on it (Graham...wink, wink!). I slept poorly on the plane, and my ass was as flat as a pancake. I caught a city bus (saving myself Euro 40 + on a taxi by taking the bus, which was Euro 3.5) and, of course, sat on the upper level. It took …
