All rooms at the Birmingham Central Backpackers are individually decorated and range from dorms to private bedrooms.
We have private singles, twin, triple and quad rooms with tea and coffee making facilities. We also have shared dorm rooms that hold between four and twelve people. Most dorm rooms have lockers but if they don’t we have even more lockers in the common room.
Our eight bed POD dorm adds a new level of privacy to backpacking. Based on the Japanese capsule design, each POD has a 360 degree private reading light, locker, extra comfy mattress, and curtain so you can have the utmost privacy if that’s what you are looking for.But book early if you want to secure one of these beds – they sell like hotcakes.

Any guest (including their entire party) caught bringing in other people will be evicted immediately without refund and charged for the additional people they have allowed to trespass in our buildings.
