People tend to check in during these times:
The Best Little Hostel in Texas.
Beware The Phantom Shitter!
They only clean the bathrooms & showers on Friday.... Gross. Also, it's easy for vagrants to sneak in & out, so keep a close watch on your stuff. The scenery is nice and the locale is convenient.
I love HiAustin! I met some really cool people there. Weird ones too! keep Hostelling!
Free pancakes every morning and keep and eye out for weekly activities!
Make sure you keep the card they give you with your bed number, that way when they screw up you don't get blamed for sleeping in the wrong bed.
Take your morning coffee down to the "Lake" in the hostel's backyard. You might see a heron!
Free breakfast on Sundays.
