Pros: I have never stayed at a hostel before and was not sure what to expect. This one was incredible! if i ever need to got to Austin for a long period of time, i will be staying here! Super clean bathrooms and the entire place was right next to a lake! It was such a great view! The staff was superb and very helpful! Worth every penny!
Pros: Amazing place! Great staff. Huge kitchen with room to store your stuff. Great breakfast. Would definitely stay here again! Located around 30 meters from a river. Staff was nice enough to hold my mail for me prior to my arrival. Vending machine with cheap drinks. Towel use is free. Showers are very clean. I forgot my shower shoes and had to go barefoot. It has been two weeks and I still haven't gotten athletes foot or whatever. So they are clean! Would definitely stay here again.
Cons: Not a single complaint

Cons: nothing much. enjoyed the place so much.
Pros: The staff was incredibly nice and the location of the hostel is breathtaking. Wake up and go for a walk along the river. What could be better than that?
