Property Description

Please note that minimum age requirement for overnight stays is 21, thanks!

Our rooms are next to an occasionally raucous tequila-fueled bar, with DJ sets that sometimes go until 2 am, so if you are sensitive to noise, you may want to carefully consider the overall environment before booking.

The Native is for the seekers. The curious ones, filled with youthful wanderlust. Explorers who know that possessions are fleeting, but experiences last a lifetime. Located at the nexus of Austin’s artsy East side and the downtown entertainment district, The Native is a luxury hostel offering handcrafted design and a unique Austin perspective to visitors from all over the world.
The Native is the first hostel of its kind in the Southwestern United States, combining the comfort of a luxury hotel and the cost efficiency of hostel traveling. The Native experience is a high-impact collision of music, arts, food, and drink for individuals who thrive on connection, unbridled fun, and meaningful experiences. With 65 beds, a bar and kitchen and coffee shop on site, locals and travelers alike will enjoy the adventures and cultural experiences that the Native offers.

Located in between vibrant downtown Austin and the burgeoning East Side, the Native provides easy access to all of our favorite Austin spots. We are two blocks from the Austin Convention Center and downtown, less than a mile from Lady Bird Lake and the 10 miles of hike-and-bike trail surrounding it, and in the midst of east Austin with its famed barbecue, taco trucks, and coffee shops.

The 6-bed dorms offer 6 single beds, bunked. Each bed has a privacy curtain, with a lamp and plug for convenience. Two showers, one toilet, and vanity with brass fixtures and marble counters. Locked storage for each guest.

Before you visit, there are a few things to point out:
- Be decent. Native is a safe and comfortable space for travelers and local Austinites alike. Please add to our culture of inclusion and decency.
- We take the safety of our guests and their belongings seriously. We will handle theft and illegal behaviors by calling the police and removing the offender from our property, without refund. If you see anything alarming, please alert our hostel staff immediately.
- No non-registered guests in guest-only areas. We offer lots of public space for meeting up with old friends & connecting to new ones – don’t bring any guests into keyed-access areas.
- Be clean. Please take appropriate care of your personal hygiene and physical space, as you will be sharing your experience at the Native with lots of other folks.
- No food or drink in bedrooms. There are plenty of public spaces for eating and drinking, as well as a kitchen for storing snacks while you aren’t enjoying them. Out of respect for your fellow travelers, and to keep pests at bay, please don’t eat or drink in your room. The communal refrigerator will be regularly cleaned out, so please label your items with name and check out date when you put them in the fridge.
