The Firehouse Hostel is located in the oldest standing fire station in Austin, originally built in 1885. A real, historic firehouse! Locally owned and operated. Started by travelers for travelers, the hostel first opened in 2013 after an extensive renovation project that updated the building’s interior with modern amenities. Today, the Firehouse is the largest hostel in Texas with capacity for over 70 guests.
