A Lakeside Retreat in a Park Setting

HI Austin hostel rests on the shores of Lady Bird Lake, providing a peaceful setting only minutes from downtown Austin. Guests are just steps away from bus lines, hiking and biking trails, and the Colorado River. Austin’s music scene, funky shopping districts, and gorgeous natural beauty are all close by.

The newly completed Boardwalk Trail around the lake makes the 35-minute stroll to Austin’s hot spots a beautiful and easily navigated journey. You won’t want to miss the Red River music district with its incredible nightlife and the stylish hub of South Congress, known for its many eclectic small retailers, restaurants, music and art venues. Rent one of the hostel bikes and ride to the Barton Creek Greenbelt and take a dip in the cool waters of Barton Springs Pool or borrow one of the hostel’s yoga mats and practice your Sun Salutation.

This Austin hostel has a comfortable and laid-back atmosphere, free Wi-Fi, free do-it-yourself pancake breakfast, a common room that overlooks the lake, and weekly community meals and events to help you get to know other travelers.


There’s more Texas to discover! Why not head to Houston next and indulge in some crawfish boils and museum exploring in one of America’s most diverse cities?
