Negative Reviews

A Bit Hard to Find

According to guests, the hostel is quite difficult to locate and access, especially when not travelling with a personal vehicle. Public transport in Cardiff is not very easy to use, aside from the nearby train station. There is also no direct bus available that links to the property. Moreover, the road to the hostel is quite obscure.
