Liked: Great staff, prime location next to 6th street right in the thick of it. Incredibly comfortable beds, showers with reliably hot water, everything is clean and secure. Solid common room for drinking and hanging out. Best hostel breakfast I've ever had - fresh fruit, cereals, pastries, scrolls, almond milk.

Disliked: WiFi is very hit and miss in the rooms but works well in the common room.

Liked: Cute, homey place in the heart of downtown, with beds for as little as $30 per night. The staff was super friendly and helpful.

Disliked: From the second floor, at least, the music playing in the lounge can be heard, especially the base, and it can be hard to fall asleep, even with headphones on. If you're not a heavy sleeper and you room in a shared dorm, expect to be woken up at least a few times during the night as people come in and out of your room (which, really, is to be expected at a hostel with a bar and lounge in it). The bedding situation can possibly be confusing, apparently: a drunk guy woke me up at three in the morning because he thought that I was sleeping in his bed, and I had to go down to the front desk to (quickly) sort it out. Not a huge deal, and not much that the staff can do about it, but definitely a downside.

Liked: Not only was this hostel in a great location right off of bustling 6th street, it also is a clean, sociable hostel with an attached speakeasy type bar/lounge with live music everynight! Plenty of activities and a setup very conducive to socializing and making friends. One of the best hostels ive ever stayed at!

Disliked: The rooms were freezing in july and a few mattresses were unbearably uncomfortable.

Liked: It is a cool space, with a great lounge/bar that has live music every night, but it is also close to downtown Austin and a ton of other bars and live music.

Disliked: The twelve person rooms are tight and depending on your roommates can be a bit gross, but you get what you pay for and if you don't want that you can stay in one of the smaller rooms (less people).
