The Firehouse Hostel is located in the oldest standing fire station in Austin, originally built in 1885. A real, historic firehouse! Locally owned and operated. Started by travelers for travelers, the hostel first opened in 2013 after an extensive renovation project that updated the building’s interior with modern amenities.

    I gave "poor"mark to facilities because of the bathroom.Personally I feel that only minimal investment may be needed to make bathroom a more pleasant area.For instance wooden countertop around sink is an area where just a nice one made of formica or even artificial stone would make that area looking much better,kept clean and dry unlike what iy looks today..Shower head in the stall that I had used is loose and cannot be adjusted.As I said these are not big and I certainly think expensive .
