Austin Hostel

Hostel Austin

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

HI Austin rests on the shores of Lady Bird Lake, providing a peaceful setting only minutes from downtown Austin. Guests are only footsteps away from bus lines, hiking and biking trails, and the Colorado River. Austin's music scene, funky shopping districts, and gorgeous natural beauty are all close by.

This Austin hostel has a comfortable and laid-back atmosphere, free Wi-Fi, free pancake breakfast, a common room that overlooks the lake and weekly community meals and events are organised so you can get to know other travellers.

A 10 minute journey from HI Austin takes you to the middle of the Red River music district; the stylish hub of South Congress, known for its many eclectic small retailers, restaurants, music and art venues; and to the cool waters of Barton Springs Pool.
