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…
• TWO pillows per bed
• free linens and towels
• free strong Wi-Fi

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
• our unbeatable location, close to all the sightseeing, attractions, music venues, and nightlife

The Firehouse staff is always available to help make your stay wonderful. Austin’s bike-share stations are only a block away. We are conveniently close to bus stops for all the major bus routes. You can even take the bus (CapMetro Route #20) to/from the airport in about 30 minutes for only $1.25!

Solid hostel for its proximity its downtown location. Had no issues with the accommodations or people. It was a little dirty and smelly in places. To be expected in a room with four men across the hall from the bathroom.

Awesome place, with great people! If you need silence, while you sleep, it’s not the best location, but beds are very comfortable and great accommodations
