Cardiff Backpacker Hostel is within a stones
throw from the centre of Europe's youngest and fastest growing capital.
Cardiff is a vibrant compact city with a large student and multicultural
Brimming with a massive choice of bars, nightclubs and restaurants, Cardiff
is now established as Britain's main sporting venue. Our splendid Millennium
Stadium, uniquely situated in the heart of the city (and a drop kick's
distance from the Hostel), hosted the 1999 Rugby World Cup and is the
home of the FA (Soccer) Cup Final.
A city of character arcades and cafés, Cardiff is also a friendly
place to relax. It is home to the National
Museum & Gallery of Wales, the Museum
of Welsh Life, and three castles all set in stunning countryside and
Cardiff is capital and gateway to the ancient and breathtaking country
of Wales. Wales identity is intrinsically linked to its own language.
Welsh is the oldest living language in Europe and is spoken either as
a first or second language by many of the Hostels staff. This increasingly
independent small nation boasts three National Parks, five areas of outstanding
natural beauty, and more castles per square mile than any other part of
the world. Outdoor activities abound the Brecon
Beacons, the Gower Peninsula, the Pembrokeshire
Coast and Snowdonia
Wales lyrical & performing tradition made world famous by the
likes of Dylan Thomas and Richard Burton continues today in Eisteddfodau,
and the many Arts and Rock Festivals held throughout the year. Our present
day singing exports range from Tom Jones and Shirley Bassey to the Manic
Street Preachers and the Stereophonics, whilst also continuing to produce
Hollywood celebs from Michael Douglas wife to Hannibal Lecter!
