Great Hostel on a lake in an amazing city
HI Austin isn't located right in downtown, but the bus from the airport stops right up the street, and its location on the river and boardwalk trail make it an amazing spot to wake up and relax when you're not out exploring. Common areas include cozy the cozy indoor sitting area and kitchen, with large bright windows looking out over the lake, and the patio just outside with seating and a hammock in the sun. It's great starting the day with breakfast outdoors away from the noise of the city. Activities throughout the week are a good introduction to other guests and the city, and bike rentals let you get around to downtown or the Barton Springs very quickly. A large pharmacy, Starbucks, and some takeout restaurants are walking distance. Food trucks are also nearby in different lots.

Hi Austin
Great place -- nice, friendly, close to downtown, inspiring kitchen, near Ladybird Lake. I love being a traveler. Great place. Nice people.

Clean beds, homeless shelter look.
I liked the city and the location wasn't too hard to get to (just a bus ride from the amtrak), however, the place seemed outdated, like it was a bomb shelter awaiting a revamp that it couldn't afford because the taco shacks next door were too dirty and un-business like. The beds were good and the bathroom was clean, but i was upset with the breakfast and the whole ordeal of finding the place.

Will Stay Again!
I really enjoyed my stay at this location. Staff very friendly. They make sure you have everything you need. The place is very well kept. Can't beat the price and it includes a continental breakfast. My only suggestion for improvement is disinfecting of the showers. They were clean but never had the fresh smell of pine sol. The rooms were clean and the beds were just fine. I'll be staying here again in the coming months.

I stayed here for a week, had no problems of any kind. Staff were courteous and friendly. Location is beautiful, five-minute walk to bus routes. People I met were mostly from Europe and very cool to talk to. I would stay here again without hesitation. Austin is a great city to visit.

Meh
Sure it was super clean and the location is beautiful, but I really wasn't thrilled with this place. For one thing, my friend reserved it online, and when we got there, she ended up having to pay like $10 more than she was expecting, because of some kind of fee that's not listed on the web site. It was still only about $25/person, but I don't like the idea of "hidden fees." Also, The girl who checked us in kept cutting us off, and I thought she was really rude. She was rude to the people who checked in after us, too. It's a good place to crash if you just need somewhere quiet to get some rest, but I felt like I was in a library.
