NosDa is committed to caring for the health and well-being of our customers and playing a constructive role in supporting local health officials and government leaders. Read about the latest decisions being made by the company, the actions being taken in preparation for COVID-19 and what our staff are up to during lockdown here!


Further to the Government’s Announcement, it’s with a heavy heart that we can confirm the indefinite closure of NosDa Hostel & Bar due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic. While this decision will not come as surprise to many, it has sadly become impossible to continue trading in the current climate. As a member of the tourism AND hospitality sector, we’ve been fighting this crisis on two fronts – a fight which we simply are unable to win.

We’d like to pay credit to our local suppliers, many of whom are in the same position as us right now. We’d also like to send our solidarity to the music and arts community in Cardiff, many of whom we consider part of the NosDa family, and who are also facing an elongated time of uncertainty. We’re proud of the reputation we’ve built as a local music venue and we are determined to return better than ever in the future. We are looking into setting up a “NosDa Creative” online fund in order to help us rebuild our arts programme when we return – watch this space!

Our staff are our family. Some are already self-isolating. We are thrilled that the Government has pledged to help us look after them during this time. We’re going to need them in a few months!

If you have reservations with us in the coming weeks or months, please continue to communicate with us via email, and rest assured that each reservation is being handled on a case by case basis by management.

Thank you for being part of the NosDa story so far - we really look forward to the world returning to some sense of normality soon so we can write a new chapter in the small corner of Cardiff that we love so much. And of course – when we DO return, you know we’ll be having one hell of a party!

Take care of yourselves, your families, your friends and your neighbours.


Sion, Diane, Steve, Rachel, Sophie, Alice, Nick, Brad, Haydn, Tom, Shannon and all our extended NosDa Criw everywhere!
