Location is walking distance from all the big sites. Staff are very friendly and informative of where to go and what to see. It's a very small hostel so there are three bathrooms (only 2 showers), I didn't encounter any problems with having to wait though. Security wise there's a code and key to get into the hostel, however, for the 8 bed mix room there is no lock on the door. There are large lockers next to the beds though, so just bring a lock. Overall great stay and I hope to go back again.

Love this hostel. It small enough to get to know everyone while sitting in the common room. It has a comfortable environment. Close to everything. Best location I've had at a hostel. Area where located feels safe walking late at night. The staff are so helpful and genuinely care that you have a nice stay. Probably the most helpful I've seen at a hostel. I had a headcold while there and the staff kept asking how I was doing- offering to make me tea, giving me fruit, etc. I extended my stay twice.

Really great place!! The staff is friendly and helpful. There's always tea and coffee to drink, the beds are comfortable. Computers are awesome if you need to look things to do up or just ask the staff! Only thing is, if you want to leave your bags before/after checkout, they are simply left in the common area out in the open. But the staff is right there in view and the hostel is small enough that it felt safe to leave. it beat carrying the bag around the city though!

Too expensive for the conditions offered. Rooms are cold and the building is falling apart. There are many better places to stay in Budapest

I had a great stay at Central Backpack King. The staff is very friendly, everything is in good conditions, the common area is good too. As for location, I've been in Budapest a LOT of times and it can't be beat. I'd make this my default hostel in Budapest from now on.

We booked for 3 males in a 3 bed en-suite apartment. It was excellent. Great location, superb value for money, we had a blast! Budapest is the place to go, so much to do and all great help from friendly staff!

This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in! The staff was so friendly and welcoming and they really made me feel at home. Other guests were also very nice and it's so easy to meet people! The bathrooms are very clean and the rooms come with a giant locker for storage. The location could not have been better: you're right in the center! I did the bar crawl and had a wonderful time with the hosts and fellow travelers. I would definitely come back to this hostel!

The order of the hostel is very kindly.Every thing about this hostel is good but it's hard to find the gate.You'd better ask others near the hostel. The restaurant near there were quite delicious except "Hummer xxxxxx" . Traffic is also easy in this hostel. At last, wish u have a nice day in Budapest.

This hostel had an incredible welcoming atmosphere. It was easy to find, close to the center of town and my stay was an overall great experience. Nothing bad to say about this hostel.
