Breakfast was great if a little over the top. Bar downstairs good. Great location. Shame the bar crawl was cancelled just because of a little rain.

Poor WiFi made it hard for us to arrange things. Clean and well catered.

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 .

I was in austin for the F1 and could not have picked a better place! Its a bit cramped to in the rooms but as a base its ideal. Large breakfast area with a great choice of goodies and a computer for residents. My room included charge points by the beds and privacy screens! Would happily stay here again!

If you want to be in downtown Austin, there is no better place. Everything was within about a half-hour walking, and even the airport is a half-hour, $1.50 bus ride away. Even though the hostel sits atop a bar, there was never a noise issue. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and I met some great folks from all across the world. Would definitely, definitely stay here again.

The staff was AWESOME. I got in late after ACL and the woman who checked me in helped me order a sandwich from a nearby delivery place. I felt like she really wanted to make sure I was taken care of. The location is EXCELLENT, right between 6th and 7th streets. Not the cleanest place I've stayed in, and it was pretty loud outside. But the staff were awesome, and it was fine for a place to crash.

Perfect location, clean and great staff. There was a problem in the room I was staying with one of the people there and they quickly solved it.

The location is amazing and is just around tj corner from all of the bars. The room itself wasn't great as it was absolutely freezing and the toilets/showers weren't the best. Good breakfast though!

I loved it here. Right in the heart if Austin the hostel is brilliantly placed and I met so many people here it really made my stay. Also the hostel runs some great activities and the bar through the bookcase is just brilliant.

We had a good stay, probably saved by the staff who let us change rooms for a quieter one. Austin is a very lively city and the customers here can be a bit messy.
