In brief: Depends

Most mattresses that are firm and supportive usually work the best but sometimes it depends on where back pain is.
Usually a firm mattress with memory foam layer on top is best.

In brief: No best

Despite what the mattress companies would have you believe, there is no such thing as best.
A couple of general points, find a mattress that is neither too soft or too firm. Change your mattress if possible every 10 years.

In brief: What feels best

The best mattress is the one which makes you feel the best upon wakening.
Thus it doesn't matter whether it's hard, soft, or somewhere in between. What matters is how the mattress makes you feel and function.
