Great stay
Perfect location for concert and city center. Room small but perfect for somewhere to sleep. Perfectly clean and great to have en suite.

Wise Stay staff allowed us to leave our suitcases in their care while we spent time touring Cardiff city center after we checked out. We are grateful for their kindness!

little gem, would book again!
wonderful little gem right next to the river, 5 minutes to city center. Lovely rooms, very comfy bed, really nice staff. Very thin walls - be prepared to sometimes wake up if you are a light sleeper. (I am though and would book again nonetheless).

Cheap and cheerful
Decent cheap place to stay for the night but the double bunk beds were really rickety and difficult to sleep on the top. Otherwise clean and in a great location.
