Firehouse Hostel and Lounge
For a lodging option within stumbling distance of Dirty 6th that won't judge you for said stumbling, check out Firehouse Hostel: a wallet-friendly downtown abode built in the longest standing firehouse in Austin, constructed in 1885 just one year before the neighboring Driskill.
ACL tickets burn a hole through your wallet? Then make up for it by staying at the Firehouse Hostel, a lively stay right off Brazos St, behind Sixth Street. Once an old fire station, this cozy stay features shared dorms as well as private suites, if you and the pals want to treat yourself without blowing the budget. Best of all, behind a bookshelf at reception is the Firehouse Lounge, their brilliant speakeasy serving prohibition-era drinks among an inviting crowd and setting.
Bunk beds start at around $39
