Today we are very excited to announce that the hostel has been named the best hostel in the UK at LateRoom’s Simply the Guest Awards.
Simply the Guest is LateRooms.com’s annual award. They use the 1.5 million guest reviews and ratings on their site to rate the highest standards in the hotel industry. Reviews can only be posted by guests who booked on LateRooms.com and stayed at that hotel or hostel, so you know the reviews are genuine. This is actually the only industry honor based entirely on authentic guest reviews!
This year’s awards have 25 categories reflecting the UK’s most popular types of holidays, including Best B&B, Beach Hotel, Family Hotel, Historic Hotel, Hostel and Luxury Hotel. This year also saw the addition of his six new categories for hotels with special features, including ‘Best View’, ‘Best Rooftop Bar’ and ‘Best Pool.
Today we’re going to talk about the best hostels in the UK.
Can I give you a drum roll please….
Best hostel in the UK according to LateRoom’s Simply the Guest Awards is YHA Cardiff Central!
YHA Cardiff Central is Visit Wales’ 5-star hostel, located between the city center and Cardiff Bay. There are dormitory rooms and private rooms, all with private bathrooms. This is one of those places where the line between hostel and hotel is blurred, but it still has the friendly, welcoming social space that travelers look for in a hostel.
What makes a hostel really special is the social space. Without this, it’s just a cheap hotel. YHA Cardiff Central has a large, cozy and quirkily decorated social space where you can meet fellow travelers and share your travel stories while sharing a beer.
Just look at the photos and you’ll see how cool and quirky it is. And rooms start from just £49 per night!
Other finalists in the Best Hostel category are:
- hatters liverpool
- euro hostel newcastle
- Mo Lodge, Newquay (and last year’s winner)
- rest up london

Congratulations to YHA Cardiff Central on winning this fantastic award.
