The Exchange

We're looking for some fun-loving volunteers to come join our family at HK Austin. The hostel is located right next to downtown in the very popular East Austin. Within one block of the hostel is all the things that make Texas great - live music, cold drinks, plenty of BBQ, and fun. We want travelers to come for at least 2 weeks and inject their enthusiasm and love of traveling into the hostel. Come join us!
