Easily the best location to stay in Austin – that is, if you can score a spot. This place is pretty well known for having year-long waiting lists because it’s mostly full-time residents with, I believe, only 12 overnight spots. Being right in the heart of the city, it’s an ideal location to explore Austin by foot and be literally a stumble away from tons of great bars and restaurants. The bathrooms and showers were very similar to those in Mexico (read: need some TLC), but the owner and residents are super friendly and make you feel like you’re in a private community within the city.
This place is pretty old school so don’t expect to book online and remember it’s CASH ONLY.
