Nosda means good night in welsh and that is exactly what we are promising! Nosda Studio Property is effectively a property hybrid, a new concept of budget and stylish accommodation.

Established in 2005 NosDa was designed using the knowledge and experience of the owner creating what we believe ticks all the boxes for today's independent traveller. Formally a 3 star hotel NosDa has been completely refurbished and modernized whilst maintaining its quirky original 19th Century features thus creating a unique, high quality, 4 star property.

Even though NosDa is one of the largest properties in Cardiff it is proud to have the reputation of being friendly and personal with well traveled staff on hand 24/7. NosDa offers a variety of room types to suit all needs, we have a great communal kitchen and plenty of common space to chill out and watch TV, read a book or catch up on emails. We have an extensive book swap library and a huge selection of DVD’s and board games a great way to get you talking to fellow travellers. Our bar is the only licensed premise on the River Taff and is popular with both our guests and the local people. We run a popular quiz night every Thursday with money, food and beer to be won, a very successful Open Mic night on the last Wednesday of the month and have a big screen where we show all major sporting events. Also in the bar you’ll find over-sized games such as Jenga and Connect 4 which are free to enjoy while sampling some of the local ales and ciders that we have on offer.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

NosDa Studio boasts a great location- being a meer five minute walk from the castle and city centre. As well, it is a 5 minute walk from the coach station. The hostel has modern, spacious and bright living areas. The staff were super friendly and suggested plenty of different places to go out (both day and night). It isn't a youth hostel, meaning there are some random older guests around the hostel.


This is a Trusted Review. Why?

My son and I stayed for 2 nights so he could go to the UWIC open day, was easy to find, very central and close to all the amenities, Vue cinema, Milleneum Stadium, Bus and Rail Stations and all the shops. Was great value for money and the staff were really friendly and helpful. The only downside was it was very noisy and we hardly slept as our room was above the outdoor area and smoking zone!
