Central Backpackers Hostel requires all guests to provide a valid credit or debit card on check- in. The hostel will pre-authorise your card for your full room rate (unless room rate paid in advance)
Payment can still be made in CASH on check-in.
A ‘pre-authorisation’ is not a charge. The hotel is NOT charging your credit card. A pre-authorisation is a security guarantee for payment only. The way it works is that a pre-authorisation request is made by the hotel’s card terminal to the card holders’ bank, your bank/credit card company authorises the funds and sends an authorisation code to the hotel. This confirms the availability of the requested funds in the card holder’s account to cover charges in the hotel (if any).


Long-term stay:
Want to become part of the Central Backpackers family?
We offer a weekly long-term rate dependent upon availability at the time of arrival. Simply book a few nights with us online and we can talk about it when you arrive!

Cancellation policy:
We require 48 hours notice for any cancellations otherwise you will be charged for the first two nights or in the result of non-arrival, the total cost of booking will be levied to your credit card.

If your booking is for 5 or more NIGHTS 72 hours notice is required otherwise the entire amount of your booking is charged.
Please note this Hostel doesn't accept group bookings unless the manager has been contacted first.

Located on the lively Park End Street in the centre of Oxfords historical university city, we are less than a 5 minute walk from the bus and train station, Oxford's Castle, museums and tourist attractions as well as some amazing restaurants, bars, pubs and clubs with discounts for all Central Backpackers guests!

    Very Good

    Good, I loved the rooftop terrace and access to towels and the kitchen, but there are obviously live in staff and so sometimes those areas become more about them then the travellers. Cleanliness is ok but i did notice a blood stain mucus on the wall in the toilet that did not go the whole time i was there. Location good, easy to get into Oxford but you need the ear plugs for the nightclub below. These are handed out by the hostel.
