We arrived at evening, it was cold and we were exhausted. Luckily the location of the hostel is not too far from the bus station. It was just like 7 minutes walk! We were welcomed by alex, she's very friendly, after checked in she showed us all parts of the hostel as well as the rules and information. We also... More

I paid 19 pounds/ night for a 6 bed girls only room. We only had 4 beds filled the 3 nights I was there. I had a little bit older crowd in my room and no one was out partying all night. There are a lot of long-term residents living there for months, and working or doing research at Oxford.... More

The location--on the way to the city centre from the rail station--is extremely convenient. The rooms are nicely sized (few enormous dormitories), the place is comfortable and very clean, and the staff are just lovely. There's free use of computers and WiFi that works pretty well. As there are a lot of clubs in the area, it can be quite... More

This hostel is awesome. The staff are really friendly, the rooms are large, the beds are comfy, tea & coffee all day, well-equipped kitchen, cosy TV room and reliable wifi. This place has a great atmosphere - I made friends here within hours. It is also relatively small, so you became familiar with all the other guests really quickly. If... More

Great, sociable atmosphere at an excellent location and for a good price. Key-coded central entrance, small room lockers and the possibility to store things in the locked staff room give it pretty good safety too. Rooms, bed linen and sanitary facilities are clean and reasonably plenty. There is free wifi as well as a number of desktops in the common... More

The 3 things I liked were it's location, the free wi-fi and reasonable cleanliness. It stops there. My room was small with 6 beds, no air-con, so being able to breathe in heat wave conditions required opening the window. The window opened straight onto an outdoor deck, where there was loud music and noise until very late at night (... More

The vegemite for breakfast and the FREE ear plugs made my stay at Central Backpackers! It’s not often as an Aussie you come across vegemite for your toast at breakfast and it was those little extras that made all the difference with this hostel. It is the combination of the roof top bar, the cheap drinks, the helpful and friendly... More

Enjoyed staying. Great small hostel, nice little outside roof area with a bar, staff were fantastic and extremely friendly, it was almost like they were fellow travelers rather than employees.Nice little free breakfast as well. Would recommend.
