  • We friends and I had such a lovely time at Drifter Jack's. It was at once fun, lively, safe, and comfortable. Great way to meet people and have a reliable, clean place to stay. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The facilities were of good quality and tidy. I will definitely be back when I return to Austin. Thanks for everything!

  • This great place is hidden down an alley, over a massive pothole, and up the stairs above a Thai Restaurant, which just felt right. They have some nice murals painted on the walls like all great hostels, clean sheets, and friendly staff that help you find things to do. It is a couple miles from downtown, but the buses are cheap and easy if you don't wanna walk. It's adjacent to the school, so there are things nearby. I would highly recommend a poetry slam at the Spider House.

  • Awesome sociable atmosphere, and super friendly staff. I especially recommend this hostel to people travelling on their own because there is a great familly vibe and it was really easy to make friends with fellow travellers. All the staff are very caring and like to make sure you have a lot of fun whilst in Austin. Good luck for the future of Drifter Jacks, I wish you all the success.

Christmas doesn't get much better than wandering around a snow-coated market with a hot mulled wine in hand. The smell of roasted chestnuts and the twinkling lights will put even a Grinch into the Christmas spirit.
