  • Everything was excellent except for the parking situation. There are only 7 spaces I believe, so get there early.

  • Had a fantastic three night-stay at Drifter Jack's! The best thing about it (besides the vibrant decor and great location) was definitely the staff, who always did their best to make us feel welcome and at home. I really want to thank them for being so kind, and I hope that anyone who stays there gets to know them as well as we did, even in such a short amount of time!

  • Such a great place! The ONLY thing that I wish was better was the parking & location. Besides that, the staff was so friendly & the entire hostel was well-kept and an overall great atmosphere. I would for sure stay here again, hopefully longer than one night next time!

  • This was the best hostel experience I had ever!! Waffles every morning, super friendly staff and a close distance to the UT Austin campus makes it perfect for incoming students and a perfect base to use to travel Austin!
