noise doesn't permeate the rooms. It's got all the basics you'd need -- a comfortable bed and decently clean restrooms. What really made our experience here was all the new friends we met. The common areas on each floor make it extremely easy to mingle.

Very cool speakeasy type bar with live music! Lots of space to sit or stand around and enjoy the activities. They have beer and shot specials as well as high-end Japanese whiskey. Definitely a must visit in Austin! Especially love the door you have to slide to enter.

What used to be a great bar is now a great bar AND hostel! The location puts you right in the center of Party Town USA. Located just off 6th street, you can walk right outside and be in the action. You’re also close to the Capitol, UT campus and up and coming (probably already there) east side. Inside the building, there is a not-so-hidden speakeasy offering delicious drinks. The vibe is very comfortable, laid back and lounge-y. The hostel itself offer a kitchen and community area to cook and visit with other travelers, plus free wifi, laundry room, free breakfast and a 24-7 available friendly staff.

The Firehouse Hostel & Lounge are located in one of the oldest fire stations in Austin. It was built in 1885 & is located just catty corner from the Driskell & around the corner from 6th street. Free breakfast each morning

Firehouse Lounge and Hostel looks like an inexpensive Hostel just walking by but there is a secret entrance to the lounge. The lounge bar is accessed through a hidden unsuspecting old bookshelf in the lobby. As you slide the bookshelf over surprisingly there is a sleek lounge that looks nothing like the hostel. The lounge is known for its prohibition-era cocktails, happy-hour deals and live music. It is also in the city's oldest standing fire station, built in 1885.605 Brazos Street, Austin, TX 78701

My good pal Collin opened the Firehouse Hostel to great acclaim a few years back, restoring a firehouse built in 1885, and making some changes along the way to carve out shared dormitories, suites and private rooms. The ground floor of the property has been converted to a swank and sexy cocktail bar, where nightlife events are held regularly. Also, one time at a SXSW event at the Firehouse Lounge, a real, live monkey got tangled in my hair. It was one of the best things that has ever happened to me.
