Liked: Not in the center of town, but ample room to park your car (for free!) and lots of outdoor seating that overlooks the river. The facility is well-kept, clean, and ha very friendly staff.

Liked: The hostel is great and its location pretty good. But it gets a bit expensive when a shared room in 30 dollars.

Liked: It was fitting for Austin. Cute and a bit quirky. It seemed like there was a lot on offer that we didn't take up due to lack of time.

Liked: The location

Disliked: Hidden fees: I had to pay an extra 30 bucks on top of what was announced by hostelbookers. The room was extra small and the window coudnt even close itself properly. Impossible to control aircon; It was either too cold or too hot.
