    This is a really nice, traditional hostel- comfy, small and friendly. If you are expecting a big chain experience and facilities then this is not for you; but if like a homely feel with genuinely friendly and helpful staff then you'll like it here. The hostel is small but with good communal facilities for meeting other travellers and the staff couldn't be nicer. Its clean and the neighbourhood is safe with plenty of shops, coffee places and restaurants within a short walk.

    Nice hostel, spacious and relaxing and peaceful. Has parking if you are here with a car. Friendly staff. Located in East Austin but close to many night life places which are cool. Very comfortable bed mattresses which was a plus.

    Don't be fooled by not being located in downtown. Do what you have to do in downtown, like Capitol and all that. But when it comes to bar hopping, East Austin is where you wanna be. Also, right across the street is what's supposed to be Austin's best taco place. And yep everyone was right, they are by far the best tacos I ever had. + Owners/staff very very helpful and always up for a chat. Cheers Philipp

    The hostel hosted a party whilst I was there which would have been fine had they not paraded people through the dorm room to show them the view. Good location.

    The worst part about this place is the staff. These people are WEIRD! You best hope they open the door for you when you show up, there have been many reviews where no one answers the door. All the staff members come off as unemployed rejects, there really is nothing "creative" about them. The house itself is really nice, the location is OK. You can walk to downtown, but you will be walking past a tent city, a bunch of bums live not even half a mile from the hostel. Its kind of alarming.
