Drifter Jack's Hostel

Austin, USA

New hostel that -- as other reviews have mentioned -- has nailed it. The owner Andy is a awesome and working on continuing to improve the building (it's an old apartment hallway), and is passionate about culturing the hostel's atmosphere. The one bathroom for 12 people was little tricky in the morning but manageable. Beds were by far the most comfortable hostel beds I've slept in. Discounts at local businesses and one nightly Lone Star for free at the bar next door were added bonuses :)

Auberge NOLA Hostel

New Orleans, USA

Facilities are very clean, and the house is beautiful. Beds were a little stiff, but I think that was just because it's only been open for a few weeks when I went (about a month after opening) and nothing was really broken in. My one wish was for a true common area inside the house -- there is a porch out back, but the only common area inside was in the kitchen around the dining table. Location is solid, 30 minute walk from the French Quarter/around the block from the streetcars.
