 The room was very clean. The kitchen/living area (and washing machines) in the basement was a great amenity for a longer-term trip. Good discounts with area bars and restaurants.

 This is real old time. Ac works though open windows from hall to room. At first you think what!!!! but then it all feels quite comfortable. Beds are good. Craft beer shop next door. Breakfast a block away. Open mike night Wednesday at pizza place below.

Staff were all very nice. Hotel is right downtown, next door to several small good eateries. Lovely, old, interesting lobby. Large, clean self-serve, self-clean kitchen downstairs. Bed was comfortable (I needed an extra blanket).

Absolutely loved my stay at Native- easily the best/nicest hostel I have ever stayed at. The higher than average quality of all aspects of the hostel are not reflected in the price, which makes it fantastic value for money. Rooms are very pleasant, staff were friendly and helpful, environment and atmosphere were great.

Probably the most beautiful hostel I've ever stayed in and I've stayed in many throughout Europe. Super clean, fun events like comedy shows and concerts super comfortable beds and rooms, and a bar and restaurant inside. Amazing.

I haven’t stayed in a hostel in almost 20 years, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I’m not your typical age person you would find in one, but I travel alone, and wanted to meet others. This hostel is in a great location, and it has been decorated very tastefully. Beds were comfortable, nice crisp WHITE sheets and towels. Everything was very clean, and lovely. The staff was warm and welcoming. I can’t recommend this place enough. Yes, there is noise from the nightclub. Ear plugs solve that!

They are amazing! People are super friendly. They are willing to help whatever the situation is. The dorms look fantastic and the location of the hostel is good because it is a 3 minute walk to the train station. Overall, I had a great stay here. Awesome!

Lovely people, great location if you’re young and want to be in the ‘fun’ district filled with hipster bars and restaurants. Rooms are really nice, so are the common areas - well decorated with comfy and stylish furniture. Breakfast only a continental one but they don’t pack it up til midday which is nice. Staff super friendly and helpful, chatted to them for hours on end, and even went out with them a couple of times. Toilets and showers are nice and pretty clean.

Amazing location! A bit more expensive than I'm accustomed to paying for a hostel but honestly the location makes it worth it. They give you a free beer at check-in which is awesome. Clean facilities, roomy bunks, good linens, clean bathrooms, simple but tasty complimentary breakfast. I've stayed in many hostels around the world and I would definitely recommend this one! Plus there is an attached bar behind the bookcase next to the elevator if you'd like to start your night off right 👌

The location was great since it was just steps away from 6th Street aka Party Central. The staff was professional, forgiving, and helpful. The lounge on the ground floor of the hostel was top-notch. Make sure to hit up happy hour! Drinks are affordable and delicious! I ran into some really fun people at this hostel and had an unforgettable night.

Amazing experience!! I’ve stayed at hostels all over the world but this was one of the best! The staff are so nice and make you feel like family the moment you walk in, the hostel is clean and bright and the atmosphere was great! There's also a ton of suggestions for cool things to do and see in the city! 10/10 would recommend!

The girls are great! One of the best hostels I’ve been to so far. It’s very nice and clean and they are very informative. I like the number code door handles for security and it’s got everything you need!

An amazing hostel: brand new, super clean, very nice and forthcoming staff, large and comfortable beds, an included breakfast, with a strong value on security. The road on front provides parking space for lots of cars. The only thing worth mentioning is, that you will hear the freeway in every room. It's not super noisy, but it sounds like living close to ocean waves. But this shouldn't keep you from visiting!

Great location. Many restaurants and points of interest nearby. All members of staff were both friendly and helpful:Hannah, Brooke, Kristen, Kaleb. I felt welcome, safe and happy. There was fun beer pong games, pub crawls and plenty of suggestions for things to do. I have friends in town, but I really enjoyed my stay at the hostel. I would do it again. They have large lockers for storage and the bathrooms were clean. There's a full kitchen at your disposal, too.

Drifter Jack’s is a great hostel. Tucked away off ‘the drag’ in a good location with quick transport links to down town or anywhere else you may want to explore. Staff were friendly and super helpful. Austin is AMAZING! Drifter Jack’s is where you need to be during you time in Austin. Thanks Drifter Jack’s. I’ll be back. Highly recommend!!
