Tips / Destination

Budget travelers look no further. Here we have your guide to the cheapest places to stay in the Welsh capital.

The River House Cardiff is known as one of the best overall hostels in the city. It’s fairly cheap and small, with a free breakfast and a free walking tour, plus there is a pet cat to play with.

If you are looking for a good time, NosDa Hostel & Bar is the best option for you. There is an on-site bar that hosts gigs by local bands, and it’s cheap to boot. Plus there are female-only dorms available.

Mrs Potts is a great choice for solo travelers who want to meet other people. The staff is friendly and there are good common areas to socialize.

One of the cheapest hostels in town is called Nomad. There is a free breakfast and free coffee, and the place is comfortable. There is also table tennis and a bar where you can hang out.

The top spot for couples is Bunkhouse, a distinctive place with amazing décor. It feels like a cut above the standard hostel, so it’s good if you want something a bit more romantic.

3 Gifts Travelers Want

Friends and family members of travelers are always looking for the right gift. It’s hard to find something that will surprise a traveler and also be something they use often. Many are trying to look past the typical gifts travelers get, such as notebooks and pens, and looking more toward destination-specific or more unique items. Gift giving can be difficult for some that don’t know what a traveler is looking for or needs, but these three gifts are a great starting point.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination?

Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
