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.

Cleanliness of kitchen utensils need to be improved. Fridge space should be better organized - could have big plastic trays for individual guests. Also there fridge should be cleared out of old/expired items so that space is not wasted

The hostel is a good value for the money and very clean.The staff are very helpful, informative, and efficient. Jonah is very personable with guests and he tries to get to know you. However, Leigh is not personable at all with me. I've stayed at this hostel five times and she never smiles or engages me in conversation.A simple, "Hi, how've you been" would be nice! Leigh doesn't seem to like her job as she seems unhappy working at the hostel.
