Hostel 512 - Austin, Texas

Posted: March 16, 2022 | Projects

This 3,729-square-foot hostel was designed to provide a budget-friendly, yet comfortable modern, facility that reflects the laid-back attitude for which Austin, Texas, is known. The site was small, at just over 1/4 acre, but located in a hip neighborhood close to downtown and within walking distance of many local coffee shops, bars, and restaurants. The design consists of two buildings. A roughly 800-square-foot single-story building includes social spaces (a lounge, self-service kitchen, and dining area), the reception desk, luggage room, manager’s office, and other operations spaces. A separate two-story building contains the sleeping rooms and bathrooms, which are accessed from exterior walkways and balconies. The hostel features a mix of room types, including four-, six-, and eight-bed dormitory-style rooms, as well as two private rooms with ensuite bathrooms.
