YHA investing £4million in new Cardiff 'Poshtel'

Cardiff YHA

YHA (England and Wales) is investing £4million in Cardiff, creating a new 92 bedroom world-class YHA in in the heart of the Welsh Capital and set to open in March 2015.


Situated only 15 minutes' walk from the City centre, Central train station and the Millennium Stadium, the new YHA Cardiff Central will be one of only a handful of accommodation providers near the centre that has cost effective group accommodation for schools, colleges or universities with classrooms on site.


YHA purchased the three-storey former Mercure Lodge Hotel on East Tyndall Street earlier this year and will be opening the luxury Poshtel in Spring 2015 following a £500,000 facelift. The new YHA Cardiff Central will also have three fully equipped meeting rooms making it ideal for conferences and school groups.


Every room will have en suite facilities and there will be free wifi throughout the building, a secure luggage store, free onsite parking for cars and coaches, and conferencing facilities available for private hire. Catering for travellers of all tastes and budgets, YHA Cardiff Central will also boast a licensed restaurant and a self-catering kitchen.


Bookings for YHA Cardiff Central are open now with prices for private en suite double rooms starting from only £39 and beds in shared rooms starting from £16.
