it was all great, nice people the staff, clean place, comfortable beds cozy bathroom would return/10
We had a 4 bed room that shared a bathroom with the 4 bed room next door. Which is good and bad, makes it cleaner but no other toilets in the morning. It's located a bit out of downtown which is good because it's quieter but the bus for downtown doesn't really come very often. The uni of Texas is across the road which meant that the restaurants are super cheap in the area around the hostel. The rooms are clean, the beds are really comfy and the air con is powerful.
My wife and I got the private room, which had everything we needed. It is right near the entrance and the common room though so if people are talking loudly you'll hear them easily. Location is reasonable, there are bars and cheap eats down guad st, but you are not really walking distance to downtown or SoCo. Breakfast is very basic but fruit is good. Hostel options in Austin are limited so this is a great pick. If you are going to the airport use the hostel shuttle. Cheap, easy and reliable.
