Central Backpack King
Ranked #96 of 667 Speciality Lodging in Budapest
Reviewed 13 May 2017

The reception for this hostel is on the second floor and there is an elevator. It is located near the city central with access to buses. It is roomy with a lot of light. There are fabulous restaurants and souvenir shops everywhere. Each floor has a central room and four rooms with different numbers of beds in each room. Each floor has their own kitchen. The next time we are in Budapest we will definitely stay here.

From the directions on the booking confirmation making the commute from the train station super easy, to the sad goodbye of the wonderful staff, this place has everything...including free coffee!! If you're a backpacker, this is your spot! Metres from St. Stephen's Basilica and local hot spots, the location offers easy access to the best of Budapest and the Metro (though you can basically walk everywhere). The staff have a wealth of information about must-sees, great restaurants, experiences and provide flawless customer service 24/7. I've met people here that I will hopefully know for the rest of my life and I am definitely staying here again!!

Room Tip: It's all good!

Most people who are looking for a place to stay want to know about how much it cost, well this place is definitely a good price!

Location is amazing, you're literally right next to a very popular cathedral. It's within walking distance to everything, to include local food places which by the way are amazing.

Lastly I'll say this, the staff really are amazing people. They're fun, very sociable, and can tell you literally every place to go see and eat. Truly enjoyed my stay here.

Just back in Ireland after visiting Budapest at the weekend. The staff in the hostel were exceedingly helpful. The location here is fantastic right around the corner from Saint Stephen's basilica. Rates were very good. Would definitely recommend. Thanks Szilvia and co

I absolutely loved this place. Staff were so friendly and helpful. They did everything they could to help us with directions etc. It was a really nice hostel. Beds were comfy and rooms were cosy. Lovely heating on by night especially when it was cold in winter time. Nice shower and kitchen facilities. Very city central. We were near to everything. I would highly reccomend staying here.
