The staff were the highlight of my experience at Central Backpack King. They were kind and generous and fostered a fun environment. I rarely go out when I am traveling alone, but I went out with two of the guys from my room and had a blast. We got a bunch of great suggestions and drink tickets from the front desk. Best hostel experience thus far. Facilities were fine and clean enough but the people made it great.

While the accommodations were enough to make my stay at central backpack a great one, what really set this hostel apart from any other I've stayed at was the extremely friendly, helpful, and passionate staff. In addition, the layout and environment of central backpack was great for meeting new people and finding people to hang out. Great place whether you're traveling alone or in a group. My favorite hostel I've stayed at yet and coincidentally one of the least expensive too!

Great central location, close to major metro stop making it easy to get to any train station you need. Helpful staff, big clean rooms, great atmosphere. Definitely recommend.

This hostel is definitely a great value! It's in the center right by the Basilica and a lot of the ruin bars. Great restaurants nearby too. My friends booked before me in a 16 person mixed dorm, but when I booked later that option was no longer available on here. When we checked in, we were all upgraded to a 4 person room so that we could be together, which was so great! My only recommendation is to have a separate luggage room instead of leaving it in the lounge after checking out.

We received a lot of helpful informations. The location is perfect. The staff was really nice. However, the beds weren't so comfortable... If you don't have bunkbeds, you get a bed that seems to be a futon, I kept on sliding down while sleeping. The common area is really comfortable though, a lot of sun light gets in.

We stayed in a apartment 10min away from the main address. The apartment is big, with kitchen and a big room. However, it's very old and the shower is broken, so we had some problems with the shower. Moreover, staying in this apartment, you don't see other travellers and don't interact with them.

Great location with easy access to important city-sights, restaurants and pubs. Staff was very friendly. Maybe it's not the most posh place, but still worth to pop in for couple of nights. They're organizing pub crawls and a lot of events so there's also an opportunity to meet some people.

Anyway, I have lived in the fours girls' room. It was quite noisy outside, because of the construction work at that time. The location of the hostel is very convenient, thought.
