Very Good8.0
Cardiff YHA - good for a bit of a stroll
Price reflects the value for money of this place. It looks like a former business hotel, & the private room I had was huge, and the bathroom was marge & well equipped. The fire doors in the corridor were noisy. The view from the window was of a railway siding & a builders merchant! Once you know where the city is, it's a 10-15 min walk from the centre. The staff were very helpful & friendly.
