    Loved my time at HK Austin. Location was perfect, atmosphere was great, cool communal element in kitchen to meet people, and the staff were super helpful. Had everything I'd want in a hostel. Will be back whenever I'm in Austin!

    This place was fantastic! Everyone was friendly and it was only a 10 minute walk to the venue I needed to be at. Definitely the best weekend I've had in a long time, and I will for sure be staying there again!

    I liked this place. Friendly people generally. Slightly weird person in my dorm. After she checked out...of the dorm at least??the hostel too ...she kept coming in to spend ages in the bathroom and did not like it when I very nicely asked her about it. Perhaps keys are better than security codes. Good taco place for breakfast across the road. Seems to be recommended to everyone as I met more of my fellow hostellers there than in the hostel! Comfy bed. Good bathroom. Away from the main drag.

    Booked a 6 bed dorm, was placed in 8 bed dorm that also led into someone else's room. En suite was used by a lot of people who weren't staying in the room. Found a couple ants in and around the bed. Bed was comfy, good location.

    Comfortable beds in a good area. Weird vibe in the hostel, different people went in and out of our room to use our bathroom and the balcony which made it hard when you needed to shower and mindful of security. Also appears to be more people working and living there, than guests. If you're a solo female traveller I'd stay closer to the main area.

    Other than the homeless guy really enjoying his alone time on the bunk, it was a decent experience.

    Pretty decent option if staying in Austin. Good location as it’s near downtown but at night there’s sometimes homeless people who may harass you. The staff who let me in wasn’t very professional but was polite. Atmosphere was pretty much nonexistent but it was during the week. Apparently it’s more lively during the weekend. The people there were somewhat of a mixed bag. Some were unfriendly and didn’t respond to a hello which is strange for a hostel. Good place to stay compared to other options.
