Thomas Sutton, 20, died after being stabbed nine times by Stuart Worvell in June last year.
Worvell was convicted of manslaughter in March after a jury found him not guilty of murder.
Cardiff Crown Court had heard Mr Sutton and his friend Kyle Harris, 18, had called at Worvell's house believing to be a party there.
Worvell claimed he had acted in self-defence.
But Judge Mr Justice Wyn Williams KT today told him: "You committed a significant, serious, unlawful attack on Kyle.
"Nothing leads me to believe you have shown any remorse. Certain aspects of your behaviour in court lead me to the opposite conclusion."
