    The price of rooms. The shared kitchen space was good but lacks ventilation . The hotel should provide a service where existing guests can join a" share a room group list" so frequent users of the hostel can recommend people they are happy to share a room with. Most people are extremely friendly.

    Sharing a room with random female strangers. Full nudetity in room from one woman which was totatly not to everyones taste. All nudeists should request their own nudeist group rooms. Not everyone was aware that people can come and go out of the rooms without any time restrictions being in place. Shareres should respect other people in the room and keep their personal belongings on their bed only. Reception staff should also ask female guests If they are happy to stay on the ground floor where they will have no privacy as the car park is direcly outside rooms And the windows have no privacy film on the glass. The ground floor rooms also smelt damp. Most rooms have old carpet . Hard floor should be added to some of the rooms for people who suffer from asma or allergies. If you do have asma may not be a good place to stay.

    Everything. This is an A* YHA Hostel. Now I know how to get here on foot, it's a breeze and only took me 12 minutes of brisk walking from the Great Western Pub near Cardiff Central.

    The shower!

    Didn’t figure out we had to take the card out to turn the heat vent off so we got a little warm...

    Great place to stay. Our family of five stayed here. The room was huge.

    You have to pay 2 pounds per towel, but luckily the room rate is cheap so it all worked out.
