We stayed at this B&B because we were doing a college visit and I wanted my daughter to experience the fun that I've had over the years with a B&B. I think this house is really more of an Annex to the Star of Texas on the next block. We checked in late, so there was a note left for... More

I recently stayed at the Austin Folk House Bed and Breakfast on W. 22nd Street. This was just like staying in a good friend's house! I want to live there all of the time! The B&B has 7 or 8 rooms and must have original been a boarding house or rooming house. I stayed in an upstairs room, had a... More

Good place to stay in Austin and is close to downtown. Even though its close to the university is still quite and has a great location in the city. It was easy to check in with a note left for me and explanations on what to do. Most B&Bs are more hands on, but overall the laid back hands off... More

If you have business on UT Austin campus, then the Folk House is very convenient. However, if you are a tourist wishing to see Austin, then I suggest you consider alternatives, including the sister establishment, the Star of Texas, one block away. We have stayed in dozens of B&B's throughout the U.S. Never before have we not seen an innkeeper... More

Staying at AFH is super convenient to the UT campus- 5 minutes walk- and everything was top notch. My room was incredibly comfortable- super big bed, plus lots of space to put your stuff and make yourself comfortable. Really big bathroom with everything you need- conveniences like blow drier, bath robes, but nice little bonuses like Paul Mitchel shampoo and... More

I stayed here with a work colleague while attending a conference at the university which was located about 10 minutes walk away. The B&B was very quiet and set back nicely from the road. The owners were very responsive and helpful when we booked. We didn't arrive until 10pm, but that was no problem - they left a key outside... More

We're longtime B&B people and we've stayed in some very well-run establishments. But never before in a place so completely thought-out. Wine? In the fridge, along with soft drinks, milk, ice. Help yourself. Need something from the kitchen? Go get whatever you want. Cream puffs for breakfast? Why not? Thick-cut baked bacon? Of course. Street noise bother you . .... More

Just stayed here. We weren't there for campus, but if you are it is in the perfect location. It was 110F so we didn't do the walk to 6th, but wouldn't be a bad walk in the right weather. On the way home you could just hire one of those rickshaws, tons of fun. Room was comfortable, clean, uniquely decorated... More

If asked, I'd summarize this bed & breakfast as being so-so. It's sixteen blocks from 6th St., the "happening" part of downtown Austin. We did walk to 6th St. but it's quite a schlepp. The house is on a street near the university; lots of students walk past the bed & breakfast going, it seems, to and from student housing.... More

We stayed here while moving our son in the dorm at UT. Very quite and comfortable during our stay. It is an older house with some rooms upstairs and downstairs. Our room was #6 upstairs.
