Reviewed 19 February 2013

Had a wonderful stay! The beds are clean and sturdy. The bathrooms are clean, spacious showers with good strong shower heads. The breakfast is basic, but hits the spot. The staff is so so friendly and knowledgeable. Awesome location right by the 6th street bars. Really couldn't have asked for anything more. Definitely recommend staying at the Firehouse!

Stayed three nights and had zero problems. Clean, brand new (opened fall 2012), extremely nice and knowledgeable staff. Fantastic location downtown a block from 6th street. Adjacent lounge (bar) was fantastic as well, pricey cocktails but typically cheap regular drinks, and great live music. Small breakfast provided in the morning, with a second floor kitchen soon to come. Highly recommended- Austin is a fantastic city and Firehouse makes for an awesome base camp.

Room Tip: Rooms are dorm-style, but private rooms available. Lots of interesting people came through the hoste...

A superb hostel in a fantastic location. Literally 20 steps from the famous 6th street in Austin. The rooms are clean, the bathroom is always tidy and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We had a shared bathroom but our own room. There is also the option of shared dorms and a room that has a private bathroom. There are washing machines and dryers available which is great if you have been on the road. At the moment the hostel isn't finished being constructed (the entire second floor was closed) but everything about our stay was great. The only thing I would say is it can be a little noisy but you have to remember that you are slap bang in the middle of Austin so it is to be expected.
