We know what it’s like to backpack, so from the moment you arrive we aim to make you as comfortable as possible. That starts with a smile and a clean room with free fresh bed linen to get a good night’s sleep. And in the morning you can help yourself to fair-trade tea and coffee, juices, cereals, toast and a selection of preserves at no cost.

"Fantastic hostel! Staff extremely friendly and helpful, hostel has many amenities and bonuses, including a bar:) and game room with a nice, if small sized, pool table. I highly recommend this hostel to anyone traveling to southern Wales! Top Notch!" Jason Kovacs

Our FREE facilities include a fully-equipped kitchen, hot showers with shower gel, TV room with DVD library, morning papers, city map and Wi-Fi access to get your laptop or iPhone hooked up to the internet any time of the day.

If you’re preparing for a night out we’ve got ironing facilities and you can even hire hairdryers and hair straighteners. If partying isn’t your thing, watch major sports events and films on Sky, relax in our bar for residents and their guests, or chill out in our decked garden and make use of the BBQ. If you’re feeling lucky, have a game of pool or try your hand on our poker table - but remember, it’s just for fun!

We also offer internet access, towel hire, late checkout and a laundry service, plus there’s council run pay-and-display parking directly outside.


We want you to feel safe while staying with us. That’s why Nomad is staffed 24 hours a day, has 24hr CCTV, entrance video surveillance and gives you access to a locker for free. And on check-out, we can even store your luggage so you can enjoy the last day of your stay in Cardiff.

For added peace of mind, we have a secure, female only dorm, so you don't have to put up with smelly boys!

If you require a female only dorm, please email info@nomadcardiff.co.uk or call +44 (0) 29 2025 6826
