The location is great, right next to UT campus. Downtown is a 5 min car ride away. Austin B cycle rental rack is right across the street where you can rent bicycles to ride around Austin. Spiderhouse is a really cool austin-y hipster style bar and restaurant that you can walk to right across the street. Kerbey Lane is a classic breakfast spot which is also a short walk away. You can walk to the drag in about 10 minutes and there are several places located there to eat as well.
