          This hostel was perfect! The owners, Abi and Charlie were so helpful and lovely people! The breakfast was more than I was expecting, and there was plenty of options to choose from. The rooms were nice, and the bathrooms were very well kept. Everyone was willing to help if you needed it! We are already planning on staying there again when we travel to Cardiff. It was very reasonably priced as well for everything that we had access to! Can't wait to go back!

After lots of chatting and swapping of sweets I realised that I had left something very important behind, on a chair in Whitchurch Primary School's staffroom. I had been very organised, surprising myself with my precision and attention to detail by arranging every ticket, ...
