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.

This is the best hostel in the whole of America in the best city of the whole of America in my opinion! Staff are really friendly, BEST location, coolest people pass through it and heaps of fun activities! You cannot have a bad time here! I was due to stay for around 4 days and just kept extending it because I loved it so much!

I loved this hostel. Great location, sociable kitchen area with good facilities. The pub crawl is definitely worth going on. Also found the bed comfy, and liked the way there was a little bit more privacy than a standard bunkbed. Only downside is occasionally the noise from the bar/ kitchen, but that's pretty standard for a hostel.

Great location, decent staff, but facilities need to be updated/fixed and rooms/bathrooms/common rooms could definitely be a lot cleaner!

This is a great hostel with a lot of character right in the heart of 6th Street next to all the bars and clubs that have live music. Great location for bar hopping etc, far enough away from the main strip though that you can still get some sleep. Very clean and friendly staff and it has one of the coolest bars you'll ever see!

8 bed mixed dorm - Hostel excellent location with helpful staff. Cool bar with good variety of drinks & the beds were comfy. The cleanliness of the rooms was bad though. Clean sheets, but the solid bed-bases had dirt, other peoples hair & other nastiness at the sides. The Men's toilet/showers on 2nd floor (and 3rd floor) didn't seem to get cleaned at all during our stay, and parts of the building seemed pretty run down. Broken door handles in the cubicles and loose shower fittings.

Right on 6th street. Amazing bar downstairs. The 2nd floor kitchen is the central heart and social mixing pot at this place. Cleaned everyday and very good looking in fit out and decoration.
