Central Backpack King
Ranked #88 of 673 Speciality Lodging in Budapest
Reviewed 13 December 2008

Very nice staff, who are always helping you; free coffee, comfortable living-room and a really good location - although it is quite small, it is just one of the best hostels I have been to.

Reviewed 15 September 2008

We stayed at this Hostel for 4 nights in early September, it was our first time in the city and I have to stay as a seasoned hostel stayer this is up there with the best.
Ignore the rather unappealing front entrance and reserve judgement until you get inside,you will be releaved.
It is not the cheapest hostel in Budapest but I cant imagine any are better, the location is second to none, directly in front of the Bassilica and within walking distance of most places in Pest and the bridge connecting to Buda.
The place is clean, smells nice when you enter and feels like a home from home with the welcoming staff and fun, friendly atmosphere. The full kitchen, common room and computer with free internet access made this, in my humble oppinion a better option for travellers than a hotel, i can not reconmend this hostel highly enough and hope to return soon.
