Liked: Friendly, helpful staff and in a good location. Comfy beds and clean.

Disliked: The window had no curtain so light was shining through all night but honestly nothing to complain about. Postives outweigh the negatives greatly

Liked: The staff are very friendly and helpful. The hostel is located next to the UT campus so the nearby museums are walkable. I wouldn't call the location "downtown" by any means. While conveniently located to bus stops it takes 25-30 minutes to reach 6th Street (and uber claims 12 minutes). The kitchen is small with a refrigerator and microwave only so no fancy cooking. I found the free breakfast excellent with waffles, toast, fruit, coffee and a wide selection of teas. The dorms are spacious with good bunk beds and lockers, although the room doors don't lock.

Disliked: Two dorm rooms share the same bathroom so there could be issues. Especially since you have to remember to unlock two doors when you leave. Fortunately, there is a toilet by the kitchen.

Liked: I never leave reviews but felt the need to considering how great the Drifter Jack's team were. Spend a solid week here and each day was more enamoured of the staff, the facilities and the locale. Cudos in particular on the general level of cleanliness and home-like atmosphere at DJ's - definitely a family vibe. Location is ideal (right near the UT campus and only 4 min Uber to 6th st). Only place id stay in Austin. Thanks to the team for putting up with our looseness and hyperactivity.

Disliked: Discovered that my spirit animal was a pidgeon... devastated. Also lost more than an ideal amount of clothing (my bad). Can't fault the hostel at all.
