This place is in such an awesome location. Literally walking distance from 6th street. Also very cozy and an amazing place to stay with friends. I’d definitely come back next time I’m in Austin.

We showed up to check in to the hostel only to be told by the maintenance person that they were closed. We had driven about 10 hours and were looking forward to checking in and getting something to eat. NO LUCK! We had to find another place to say. This hostel is in a pretty sketchy area of town and in the end we are glad it didn't work out but would have been nice to be notified.
