    Wonderful last-minute booking after ACL. The location was great since it was just steps away from 6th Street aka Party Central. The staff was professional, forgiving, and helpful. The lounge on the ground floor of the hostel was top-notch. Make sure to hit up happy hour! Drinks are affordable and delicious! I ran into some really fun people at this hostel and had an unforgettable night.

    Good central location but the rooms are a bit small and dimly lit. Staff were all really friendly and helpful. Common room/kitchen was nice big small and lacked enough plates/dishes to allow for breakfast, we missed it two days out of 3 due to this
