    Very good”

    Small but spotless private room with a big window and the heat cranked up just high enough, a comfortable low bed, tea and a hot water kettle, fast wifi: everything I needed. I'm in my late thirties and tend to avoid backpacker joints and their drunk lads, or patchouli-scented hippy bros, so I'd been apprehensive about this place, but it was fantastic. Great value for the money,

    Excellent hostel; short walk(5mins) from city centre”

    Really great, clean hostel. Good price. Stayed in Room 9 with the pods and 2 ensuite showers. Toilets are just down the hallway, which is a brilliant idea for those fellow stinky travellers! Staff are really friendly and helpful. Hostel was super clean; one of the cleanest I’ve ever been in! Plenty of seating in common room and separate smoking area. I extended twice whilst I was here as I was so comfortable staying at this hostel.

    Review score”

    This hostel was absolutely HORRIBLE!! I would never stay here again & I recommend other people give it a miss as well. I was put into a mixed dorm room, the room was quite large however felt very dirty. It was also in the building next to the one pictured on the hostels website. The mattress was unbelievably uncomfortable & the springs dug into my back all night. The toilets were an absolute disgrace, there was urine all over the floor & the toilet (unisex only). I thought I would give it time to be cleaned up, however by the next morning still nothing was done about it. I arrived at the hostel about 5pm in the afternoon & was welcomed with VERY loud music from a rave that was happening in the area, this carried on throughout the night & stopped around 5am (just in time for me to wake up). The only positive would be that the showers (unisex only) had more ventilation then other hostels I have stayed in, however the shower room is under renovation & has scaffolding everywhere.

    Businessman's experience of BCB”

    I had a very pleasant and comfortable stay in Birmingham Central Backpackers. Breakfast was healthy and appetising; a choice of fruit, jams and bread including tea or coffee. The staff were polite and sometimes talkative. The bunk beds in the large dormitory are quite old; the metal frame creaks often. Make sure you wear ear plugs! The kitchen, shower room and toilet facilities are clean and well maintained. The common room has ample furniture, space, DVDs, games and literature. A nice flat screen TV is available for use. Overall the value for money is very good.

    If you come with National express bus it is a perfect location. But as I traveled with Megabus, I had to walk 20mins. The breakfast was great. The staff were super friendly. The beda are quite old. Overall, it was pleasant stay.

    Simple Hostel ”

    Hostel booking comes with simple breakfast. Rooms are located in an annexed building without shelter. Faced some inconvenience to transport luggage across when it was raining when we checked in. The only consolation is its location to the coach station. Don't expect hostel of YHA standard here. Just satisfactory for one night's rest.

    An excellent and quirky hostel.”

    I stayed here for three nights and as my first ever hostel experience I was very happy. Secure facilities (lockers in rooms and several locked doors to get into room), adequate bedding (I shared a room with 11 others) and the best part which was the quirky, welcoming and immensely lovable common area with tons of books/dvds/games around and lots of character. It's in a very central location and the included breakfast was also excellent. The only downside was that there was some noise at night (earplugs are a must) which I was told was a festival close by. Despite this I still managed to sleep well and I was surprised that it didn't bother me. Highly recommended!

    During weekends, there were quite a lot of drinking people, a bit noisy at midnight. The toilets' cleaniness need to improve. Yet they serve nice breakfast with fresh fruit. The hostel is near the coach station and central shopping area.

    I have been at different hostel in different city in the UK, BCB was a lil bit disappointing for me. Staffs are very nice especially Sam but in terms of facilities, BCB needs to consider to do major upgrade especially on toilets, shower, beds and the rooms itself. Ok experience but i will not stay here again in the future.

    Don’t bother booking this place. ”

    The location is alright as it is a walking distance from the Coach Station but it’s surrounded by questionable buildings. At night it’s completely dark. There’s an 11pm lights off policy. What is this camp? And at midnight all doors are shut off, no one can go in and no one can go out WHICH WAS NOT TOLD TO US BY THE RECEPTIONIST.
