High Design Hostels are Bridging a Gap Between Hotels and Homeshares

Native Hostel in Austin, Texas is not just offering a place to sleep, it's hoping to change attitudes about what a hostel should be. Housed in a former brewery built in the 1890s, Native Hostel is luxuriously decorated while paying homage to its historical roots. Over time, the building became dilapidated, but it was still a sought-after heritage site in Austin. Design firm Un.Box Studio worked to peel back the grubby layers of the building and add a "dark and stormy" atmosphere. One of the highlights of the Native Hostel is its Romper Room, a communal living space that can accommodate between 10 and 20 people with eight bunk beds and a California king bed. The space features rich, red velvet curtains on the bunk beds for privacy and plush blue velvet sofas for socializing.
