Located in Birmingham’s City Centre, a minute walk from the National Express Coach Station and mere streets from the Bull Ring; Birmingham Central Backpackers is Birmingham’s first, best and most centrally-located backpackers’ accommodation run by travellers with your needs in mind. It is also Birmingham's ONLY independent backackers hostel. When you stay at Birmingham Central you get far more than just a bed in a room. Our friendly staff, bright colours and over the top décor mean we're an exciting and interesting place to stay – no sterile and boring atmosphere here, that is often typical in run of the mill chain hostels. And then there's the FREE breakfast and evening snacks! Add to that the fact that we're idiculously close to all the main forms of public transport in Birmingham, and you've got to ask, why would anyone stay anywhere else?

Our common area is by far the coolest and funkiest around. Based in what used to be a pub, it has often been described as a 'technicolour explosion' you'll just have to see to believe. All we know is that our common room is simply awesome. The laidback atmosphere makes it easy to meet other travellers. Your only trouble will be convincing yourself to get out there and see the sights when there's so much to do here!

It's comfy, it's cosy. It's a great place to socialise with new friends and drink a cold beer from our bar while warming up in front of our fireplace and watching movies on our Big Screen TV!!

So what kind of rooms do we have to offer? At Birmingham Central, we have got it all. From private singles, twins and three bed rooms with TVs/DVD Players, Tea and Coffee making facilities; to dorms with 4-12 beds - including our specially built Pod Dorm Room which adds a new level of privacy to backpacking, based on the Japanese capsule design, with 8 beds with special reading lights, extra comfy mattresses, and a curtain for privacy - we have it all.
