  • It was a great place for exploring Austin. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable, helpful with information about transportation, food, events. A little hard to find since it's not on the main street so maybe few more signs at the intersection would be great. I will recommend it and would book with them again.

  • Super friendly staff. Right next to UT-Austin and a short drive to really anywhere you would like to go in Austin. Rooms were cleaned daily. Bathrooms are usually shared between two rooms so it can be difficult sometimes to use it, but they try to get you a bathroom in another room if you really need it. We met so many cool people from around the world there.

  • The Hostel had a very off beat atmosphere that was delightfully unexpected. To the murals on the walls to the cool sincerity of the staff. This was my first hostel experience and I enjoyed every minute of it :)

  • Great experience. I've never stayed in a Hostel before, so I was kind of leary at first, but the staff as well as the other guests quickly changed that. Kind of cramped, but was cool nonetheless. The girl that worked the front desk was super cool and super cute. I wish I would have gotten her number. I now live in Austin, so only growing a pair will allow me to visit again and get them digits! I recommend Drifter Jack's Hostel

  • Breakfast lasts until 11 am, with fresh fruit and wafles and much more. And I loved all the murals and drawings, that was beautiful.

  • I adored the sense of community at drifter jacks, being a smaller hostel, everybody kind of hung out together and included eachother. The staff were super cool and helpful and the rooms were really nice and clean. I can't wait to get back here again someday! Jasminka, Australia.

  • Nice friendly staff, clean dorm rooms. Good common areas to meet people. Bathrooms are a bit poorly designed, but apart from that a good hostel.
