    Spacious 300 year old comfortable house with a full kitchen including a gas stone you can use anytime you want and a big refrigerator owned by legendary traveler bigger Nomadic Matt and consultant Brent. The main reason I chose this one was being able to cook. I enjoyed my stay and the fun group activities in the living room. There are a lot bars and clubs less than a five minute walk outside. “Yippee Kay yea” Bruce Willis impersonation picture of me on their “Wall.” - Rob

    I loved my stay at HK. I felt very safe and I loved the beauty of the old house. Not to mention, it was surprisingly spacious. Beds were really comfy and the balcony was awesome! Made some great friends hanging out there. Great location too. It was close to everything without being in downtown. Just wish they would replace the shower curtain, but other than that it was perfect!

    Stayed here during SXSW. The hostel was flexible about me arriving at 1:30 am and left me the code for the entrance and room. it's a 25 min walk to downtown and I felt safe walking back by myself at 2am in the morning. The price was reasonable even though it is Austin's busiest time of the calendar year.

    The hostel was great- comfy bed, friendly staff and the location was good: walking distance to downtown, and has its own neighbourhood vibe. The only reason my “value for money” rating is midway is because I was there during SXSW, so of course everything is going to be expensive- I guess most of the year it’s a great price :) I would recommend staying here!

    Very Good

    The house was really nice, though it felt small at times. Very barebones bed, but it's kind of what you'd expect. Though, the website advertises the larger room as 6 bed, but in reality it is 8 bed. Pretty convenient to downtown and 6th st restaurants/bars as well as the airport.
