    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!

We spent a wonderful and busy couple days there! We took the train to Cardiff, which was an easy 4 hour trip. After checking into our hostel, which is a cute little place (Check out the picture!) we …
