Property Description

Welcome to the heart of Austin! The Firehouse is the only hostel in the central downtown area! We are located within walking distance of everything this fun and quirky city has to offer. The building is tucked away just around the corner from historic 6th Street with its legendary nightlife and live music scene. The Firehouse serves as the perfect home-base amid all the action.

Featured in Lonely Planet, the Guardian, the Washington Post, and on the Travel Channel!

The Firehouse Hostel is located in the oldest standing fire station in Austin, originally built in 1885. Locally owned and operated, started by travelers for travelers, the hostel first opened in 2013 after an extensive renovation project that updated the building’s interior. Today, the Firehouse is the largest hostel in Texas!

We provide…
• 24-hour reception

Our “Deluxe” dorms feature custom heavy duty bunks with large lockers built in underneath. Each bed includes power outlets and a reading light.

The attached Firehouse Lounge is a great place to meet fellow travelers and locals, sip on handcrafted cocktails or locally brewed beers, and enjoy live music. You can access our popular speakeasy-style cocktail bar through a hidden bookshelf in the hostel lobby!

Guests love…
• our fun, friendly, and helpful staff
• the character of our historic building

    I was taking a independence trip after I graduated high school, and I thought Austin would be a cool place to explore. The two nights I spent gave ample access to plenty of the best stuff in the city, including the infamous Sixth Street (though I'd suggest that for only 21+ people). The other guests I met were extremely friendly and helpful, as was the staff, and I really enjoyed myself. Would definitely recommend it for anyone thinking of visiting.

    Fabulous

    This is definitely a young person's hostile. Located over a bar, the dorm room vibrated with the music, and party goers returning around 2 am each night wakened any early sleepers. That being said, the location can't be beat and the staff was phenomenal. I dinged "facilities" because there is only one common area - the kitchen, which is relatively small and readily dominated by drinkers.

    Fabulous

    This was my first hostel experience and I was satisfied overall. My one complaint would be the bathrooms, specifically that the showers were not clean. There was mold growing in the two of the three open shower stalls, the third stall was 'out of order'. There was hair all over the walls and half used or empty bottles of left behind soaps and old razors. Some of the shower curtain rings are missing making it difficult to gain full privacy and lighting in showers is bad. A sink was also clogged.
