Super fun chill down to earth hostel, beautiful, clean house .



HK was one of the best experiences in this trip, and for sure one of the best hostels I've ever been so far. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to volunteering in a place like this. Everything is so calm and peaceful in that house it makes you really feel at home. Brent and Josh, the owner and the manager are such a cool guys, very fun, respectful and comprehensive people. Austin just amazing, full of cultural activites all around. That experience is one less topic out of my bucket list for sure.



This hostel is amazing! I had a great time, work was fine, every day but limited to 2 hours. The people there were the best part of my experience, it couldn't have been any better! I never wanted to leave and I will definitely try to come back! The city of Austin is beautiful as well, especially when you enjoy live music. Overall a fantastic place to stay and my words are not exaggertad at all. Miss everyone in this hostel!!



I'm so happy that I got to go to HK Austin. The place is classic and comfortable to hang out or even study. People in Austin are super friendly and happy. The location is Amazing, with food trucks around and close to downtown (I just walked there). The tasks in the hostel were pretty easy and Brent (the owner) worked with us. HK Austin is for sure the best choice. HK and the city of Austin have a special place in my heart.



I don't have words to describe my experience with this hostel. I stayed here for two months and every single aspect of my stay was just awesome. The staff is incredible (especially the manager Josh, the most amazing guy ever) and so are the guests. The place is beautiful and perfect to get a nice taste of wonderful Texas. It felt like home there and I'd recommend this hostel to anyone anytime. We will meet someday in the future. I'm fixing to it! ;)
