Loved all the guests here! The kitchen area gets a bit lively during the weekends which is cool to see and the speakeasy downstairs is a cool experience :) (You also get a free drink for staying here so don’t miss that)


Prime location downtown, I walked nearly every where. Anything else I wanted to see was within a 15 min lyft.


Ok so I wish I could rate this place more than 5 stars because it was such an amazing experience! The price, the location, and the staff are beyond amazing! It was my first time staying at a hostel and Howie at the front desk was so warm and sweet! I didn’t get a chance to go to the speakeasy but heard great things about it! The space was so clean and my bed was so comfy! If I come back to Austin I’m definitely staying here! You really can’t beat it!!!!
