SLEEP CHEAP IN CARDIFF, THE WELSH CAPITAL
Want to experience the beating heart of Cardiff yet seek a calm, clean and comfortable environment?
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. Meet your fellow travellers whilst tasting some of our local ales and ciders!

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!
