About YHA Cardiff Central

The new YHA Cardiff Central is opening Spring 2015

If you're looking for accommodation in Cardiff city centre, this brand new YHA Youth Hostel is perfect for you. Located in the heart of the city centre but with on-site parking (almost unheard of, right?), this Youth Hostel is within walking distance of all the city’s best attractions, including the Millennium Stadium and Cardiff Castle, not to mention the fantastic shopping destination of Cardiff Bay.

The nearby Millennium Stadium plays host to countless sporting events including the Rugby World Cup, football matches and even motorsports. A must visit for any sports fan!

But it’s not just about a great location. YHA Cardiff Central also provides comfortable rooms with state of the art facilities which are all en-suite for your convenience. Choose from socialising and meeting new people in a dorm room or keeping your family cosy in one of our gorgeous private rooms. Double rooms are also available for the single traveller or a couple’s getaway.

YHA Cardiff Central also has premium rooms available. Premium rooms include beds instead of bunks, TV, hairdryer, room safe, soap, towels, two pillows per person, storage space, dressing table and chair.

In recent years, Cardiff has become well known for its bustling nightlife scene and is a favourite amongst party lovers. With some of the best bars and clubs in the whole of Wales, YHA Cardiff Central makes a perfect base for your weekend break.

This budget hostel is also great for business travel. Free Wi-Fi for YHA members plus our fantastic conferencing facilities make this location great for catching up with emails or working on projects in the comfort of this friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

Manager recommends

  • Being the central point between both Cardiff city centre and Cardiff Bay, 10 minutes' walk each way, you are never far away from your activity of choice. Leave your car behind and enjoy the sights of the city from our sight-seeing bus tours, or walk on the turf of the Millennium Stadium. After a fun day out, a hot shower and you're only minutes away from a relaxing evening overlooking the water in the bay, or taking an evening cruise over the water and a show. All just 10 minutes from your doorstep.
