The Yellow House Hostel is a small hostel in San Marcos, TX (just 30 minutes south of Austin, TX) operating inside a fully-renovated 110+ year-old house. We offer budget-friendly accommodations for world travelers coming through Central Texas by car, train, bus, bike, or backpack. Located in a historic residential neighborhood, The Yellow House is within walking & biking distance of downtown (The Square), Texas State University, and the San Marcos River.

Drugs & Alcohol

DO NOT STAY HERE IF THERE IS ANY CHANCE YOU WILL BE DRUNK OR INTOXICATED.

ANYONE and EVERYONE who arrives or becomes intoxicated will be forced to leave without refund. Period. If this policy might affect you, DO NOT STAY HERE. We pride ourselves on being a safe, family-friendly place to stay in San Marcos and we will not put up with drunks or drug addicts. Again, if you think this policy might affect you, DO NOT STAY HERE; there are more than 30 hotels and motels in San Marcos you can stay at. That being said, guests are welcome to have a beer or two on the porch or a glass of wine with dinner. But if you act drunk, or look drunk, or smell drunk you will be kicked out without a refund.

Save us the time and you the money and DO NOT STAY HERE IF THERE IS ANY CHANCE YOU WILL BE DRUNK OR INTOXICATED.
