          This place was fine, bunk beds were really creaky and not much space for your stuff but the common areas and outside by the lake is lovely, ktichen was fine to get only problem was the showers - 2 ladies showers but a wierd set curtain between cubicles and one for the door, neither of which shut so hope you're not shy if you want to take a shower!

          Nothing really special about this hostel but as it's the only one in Austin there's not much choice. Has a lot of useful information and staff are very accommodating (we arrived at 4am and they let us sleep in the tv lounge til people started waking up). Lovely outside areas. Comfortable.

Once again I am unsure of how my time here will pan out, but the reviews for the hostel are really good which bodes well. Thus far I have discovered that even if a city is not overly enjoyable, the people you meet and the facilities available at the hostel can easily …

          Blind in Texas

          New Orleansista maanantai aamuna lähtiessämme päätimme ajaa taas pelkkää interstatea pitkin, koska matkaa oli edessä 800km. Eli suht kiva siivu taas tiedossa. Austin oli valittu kohteeksi, sillä siellä oli Stevie Ray Vaughan'in muistopatsas, ja hyvä live musiikki scene. Nyy orliins ja Lousiana pyyhkiytyi taakse, ja päästiin Texasin puolelle. Joo...
