The place was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. Well worth the price you pay. They have a fun bar with a pool table and tvs. Plus, free continental breakfast, basic but nice option. No wifi, they say they do but most people couldn't connect. Also, the mattresses were TERRIBLE. They were noisy, uncomfortable, and just crappy in every way. Also, just so you know, the bathrooms are coed with no division. I was there during a rugby game and so I was sharing it with a ton of large 50 yr old Frenchmen and this was my first time traveling alone. It was a bit unsettling. But the bathrooms were very clean and worked fine. All in all, a reliable and good hostel, I'd recommend it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- NosDa has the best location for a hostel in the Welsh capital. On the River Taff, NosDa is opposite Wales’ most iconic building, the Millennium Stadium (Cardiff Castle and Cardiff Central Station are just a stone's throw away). NosDa means 'good night' in Welsh and that is exactly what we are promising. We are the only hostel on the River Taff with a licensed bar and not only that, NosDa is an established live music venue too. What better place to stay than a typically Welsh hostel with local bands, Welsh food & drinks, and local artists bringing you closer to the Welsh culture. We regularly organise beer festivals and Open Mic nights, and all Rugby World Cup and 6 Nations games are featured on our big screen. On a match day you can hear the crowd going wild at the Millennium Stadium, that's how close we are! Even though NosDa is one of the largest hostels in Cardiff, it is proud to have the reputation of being friendly and personal with well-travelled international and local staff on hand 24/7. We are also proud to be a member of Europe's Famous Hostels, which stands for quality and great customer service for an unbeatable price. We welcome international backpackers as well as Stag & Hen parties, rugby teams and school groups. NosDa is experienced in group accommodation and offers a variety of room types to suit all needs. We have a great communal kitchen and plenty of common space to chill out, watch TV, read a book or catch up on emails.
