  • Nice and mellow people - great location

    April 2014
  • Solid place to stay. Bed was comfortable and clean. Easy to walk to downtown once you get a lay of the land. Neighborhood was a little sketchy at night, but overall I would stay again.

    February 2014
  • The host was friendly and oriented me to the neighborhood and places to eat when I arrived. Air bnb message was the best way to communicate with him. The decor was minimal and tidy. The host sometimes works from home. The street is somewhat industrial with a scrap metal yard up the block. The house is walking distance to coffee shops, good food, bars, and downtown. I was in town for a conference at the convention center and this house was a convenient location- a 10 minute walk to the center.

  • Ideal location. Small room. Jordan was a very nice guy.

    February 2014
  • Jordan was a nice guy- very laid back and helpful for our last minute weekend in Austin. We had a great time thanks to some of his suggestions!

    Thanks, Jordan!

    February 2014
  • First off, Jordan was an incredible host! He was very knowledgable of the area and had many recommendations to share with us. He also exchanged a few great and funny stories since his time in Austin. We had also met his girlfriend and his brother and both were very friendly and helpful with anything we needed. His place is in walking distance of Austin, especially 6th street. The room is pretty small with a mattress on the floor, but it worked for us. The bathroom is shared between everyone in the house but it was always kept clean. During our stay, Jordan was fine tuning a few renovations in the house, it didn't bother us at all. We would definitely stay at his place if we were to visit Austin again!

    January 2014
  • The house was in an ideal location, close to the entertainment venues on Rainey St and East 6th St. We had a last minute change in plan and Jordan was more than happy to accommodate us. The room however was a little small, nothing more than a mattress on the floor - this was adequate for our needs but do take note!

    December 2013
  • Jordan was really helpful and cool. His spot walking distance from 2 of the coolest nightlife scenes in Austin (E.6th and Rainey St.). Jordan was very accommodating. He offered his beer and laundry facility and was friendly and warm throughout the visit. The room itself is pretty basic, just a bed and a lamp but when you're that close to the action of Downtown Austin, you won't want to be spending time in the room anyway. I would definitely recommend this room to anyone who wants to check out the city on foot!

    December 2013
  • I was disappointed with these accommodations, particularly considering the price. The pictures on the house's listing don't really convey that the room is extremely small (I'd say 6' by 8'), or that the bed is just a mattress on the ground.

    Perhaps I should have scrutinized the pictures more carefully, but the price ($70 for two people) certainly indicated that there should be more to it. Also, it wasn't really clear that it was a shared bathroom. That might be on me as a "buyer beware" moment, but if I were living there it wouldn't occur to me to rent out any part of the space, particularly not at $70 a night.

    Some other points: The bed did not have a sheet between the bedspread and the comforter. I'll give the host the benefit of the doubt that he washes the comforter, but you should always have a full set of sheets on a bed.

    The glassware was not particularly clean, and the living room furniture consists of a camp chair. This is very much a bachelor pad.

    Response from Juliet:

    Thank you.

    1. Kyle effectively paid $70 for two nights, not one. As I improve the home November 2013-January 2014, the much lower price (ie half-off) will be reflected in the price you pay. The market rate for the room per airbnb's suggestion is $109 per night. I price way below that rate.

    2. There were jersey-knit sheets for Kyle. Kyle is referring to the bed having two sheets. I do provide two sheets. Kyle is correct that I do wash the comforter with skin-sensitive laundry detergent.

    3. The mattress is a new memory-foam mattress.

    4. The room is 9' by 14'. Kyle's measurements are incorrect.

    I am an accommodating host. I offer laundry, a bike (when available), directions, restaurant / drink tips, free rides by car if needed, beer, food, wine, and I will pick up toiletries if needed for guests. I provide 5-star service and nothing less.

    I also provide positive, thoughtful reviews.

    Thank you for booking!

  • Jordan was an accompanying host, meeting with us in short notice and offering a few free drinks to my traveling brother and I. The bedroom was tight and the bed was on the ground, but it was otherwise a fine place to sleep with clean sheets.

    There were no clean towels or toiletries included, which is typical of Ari BnB of this price. The location was the best perk, being in close walking distance of all the action. Overall quite pleased.

    Thank you.

    I do provide towels to all guests and I provided them to Matt and his brother. He did not use them, which is ok, too.

About
Hey ya'll! My name is Juliet, I am an Austin native and the concierge for Juliet's Bed & Breakfast. I am passionate about opening the city up to people who are new to Austin and for those who are simply coming back for a visit. Music, art, theater, and film are all interests of mine so I keep up with all of the venues and upcoming events happening in town. I love to recommend places to eat (like "Juan in a Million" my personal favorite), things so see (like the bats underneath the South Congress bridge), cocktail bars (like the prohibition style bar "Eastside Showroom"), fun actives (Lake Austin has tons of water related ones to try) and events to attend. I make it a priority to make sure you have a safe, comfortable and enriching stay with us. Please feel at anytime to contact me with any questions, requests or comments you may have, I would love to hear them, take care!
