How to get here
There is a train connecting from Cardiff central to Cardiff Queen street station. It is then a short walk from the Station to our hostel.
When approaching the hostel on foot along Herbert Street/Tyndale Street from the direction of Cardiff Central train station, keep to the left hand side of the pavement throughout in order to pass under the flyover on the north side. Use the pelican crossing opposite the hostel as there is no pedestrian way through on the south side. There are directional signs on the street which should help you on your way. Cyclists should follow a similar route.
