Property Information:

Welcome to your home away from home in Austin, Texas! Our comfy hostel is located downtown across from the University of Texas near famous 6th street, Hope Outdoor Graffiti Gallery and minutes away from all of Austin’s main attractions. While most of the city center can feel deserted in the daytime, our colorful neighborhood is always buzzing with life. West Campus is filled with independent shops, quirky cafes, vintage clothing stores and artisan vendors. Perfect for experiencing the real Austin!

Drifter Jack’s is passionate about hosteling. We know that hostels have the potential to create lifelong friendships and unforgettable memories. Our favorite hostels around the world made it fun and easy to connect with other travelers while experiencing the city like a local. That is exactly what we strive to do. For example, join us on Traditional Texas BBQ Night! Once a week our very own hostel mom serves 10-hour slow roasted pork shoulder or chicken thighs w/ her homemade BBQ sauce, borracho beans, cornbread, veggies and sweet tea. At DJ’s our focus is on community, cleanliness and comfort.

In order to truly represent our creative city, we invited over 25 local artists to paint murals throughout every room and common area. If you’re looking for an intimate home base with a great vibe and central location, you’ve come to the right place. Let our friendly staff show you why Austin is known for its retro charm and southern hospitality!
