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.

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.

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!!

I absolutely loved this place. I can't say enough about the staff there, and how awesome the crowd was. This hostel attracts exactly the kind of people you want to explore a city with, and the hostel staff was incredibly accommodating and friendly. I'll be back
