YHA Cardiff Central - Hostel
What a nice surprise.....
Stayed in a double private room and what a surprise. I didn't expect the service to be as good as it was. We packed towels to take with us following the instructions on the aite as none were provided but low and behold we get to the room and they were sat on the bed at no extra charge.....they were even replaced daily when house cleaning took place. Staff friendly on reception when greeting guests and couldn't fault anything with the place apart from it's location....but we knew that before we booked!!

Not that central, rooms OK
Typical hostel experience, room didn't seem to have enough cupboards for storage, clean enough. Not a great location if you need to visit the west of the city like I did. In the middle of nowhere really. Charges for towel a bit steep.
