At Nomad we welcome all comers from around the world. Situated in the heart of Cardiff, only 5 minutes walk from the city centre and 10 minutes from the Millennium Stadium, Nomad is perfectly situated to take advantage of everything in the exciting and fastgrowing Welsh capital - we'll even give you a free map to help you get around!

If you could ever get bored of Cardiff's historical and vibrant background, we've created the perfect environment for you to be as busy or as quiet as you'd like. Kick back in our conservatory with a drink, or set off on the Taff Trail on a mountain bike - it's up to you. And if there's something you really want to do give us a call or email and we'll try to arrange it for you.

To make your stay as safe and comfortable as possible, Nomad is fully alarmed, staffed 24 hours a day and there's CCTV in all social areas. We also offer women-only dorms, free lockers and operate a strict no tolerance policy towards anti-social behaviour.

We know backpackers want the flexibility to come and go as they please. That's why we don't insist on 2 night stays at the weekend and don't have a curfew. But we offer a huge range of free services and facilities, including late checkouts and luggage storage so you can make the most of your time in Cardiff.

When it comes to backpacking in Wales, Nomad is one sight you'll always be glad to see!

"The staff were fantastic. Really friendly and helpful as I was travelling alone. Would highly recommend staying"
Kathryn Gibson

"Really good hostel.. definitely would stay there again. so close to city centre.. cheap and free breakfast is always good!"
Lauren Nielsen

"Staying in the single room was excellent. I stayed for 5 nights and was not woken once by any noise. It was brilliant and great value for money. Breakfast was basic cereal and toast but was as expected. Tea and coffee anytime of day was great and free internet was also excellent. A great hostel to stay in whatever the occassion."
