Wonderful location if you want to walk to museums, campus, and nightlife. Staff are very friendly. Rooms can be a bit noisy at night - you can hear people coming in from the street and talking in the hallways. Overall, very happy with the place.

Overall very good experience. Love the staff. They were helpful and always nice. Location is near everything. Easy to walk to anything you need to see or do in Austin. Bathrooms could of been slightly cleaner but that is my only call out. I would definitely stay here again.

The hostel was in a great location and close to 6th Street. The beds weren't overly comfortable and it could be quite noisy at times, but overall it was a pleasant stay.

Great hostel near all the great parts of Austin. Very cool interior, we stayed in a dorm the beds were comfy and the staff were really friendly and welcoming - thanks George! And the free breakfast spread in the morning is legit - bagels and delicious stuff, muffins etc. stay here if you're on a budget but want some fun.

Great location, clean facility, and staff were very kind and helpful. The kitchen was probably one of the best I've seen; they made it feel comfortable and like home. Would definitely stay here again!

With the exception of the guy working the night shift, the staff seemed to hate their jobs and it showed. Facilities are dirty and poorly lit. BUT, it is in a prime location.

At check in the receptionist was v. unwelcoming - curt and unfriendly but the rest of the staff who were on duty at other times were very friendly and helpful. Because the late night quiet hours were not enforced there was a lot of noise from guests returning late with loud talking & singing. The receptionist could not hear it from the front desk but he did ask them to quiet down when asked to. Seems though that the guests could've been asked to quiet down as they entered the hostel.
