Drifter Jacks Hostel

Austin is the Music Capitol of the World, surrounded by rolling hills and cut by awesome rivers and creeks. Our hostel hosts 50+ guests a day from all over the world.

Our small staff is tight knit and we work together as a family. You work in exchange for a bed in a 6 bed dorm. You can participate in all the social events we have for our guests and there is lots of room for you to lead/host events.

I loved staying at Drifter Jacks, so much so that I decided to stay longer! It is a great vibe and there are amazing people that come through. Austin is such a fun and vibrant city to explore! It is super helpful to have a car to explore other towns around the area. I definitely recommend checking out Drifter Jacks! :)

Drifter Jack's was a lot of fun the staff felt like a family away from home, we hosted some fun events the weekly cookouts were a great way to build community and meet guests, the beds here were great, the location also great most things were walkable or bus-able. If you end up here you'll be around great food and make sure you use the free swimming down in barton creek
