Want a truly unique Austin experience? Come live, work & play with a diverse community of entrepreneurs, artists, musicians, designers, freelancers, dancers, yogis, adventurers, do-gooders, travelers, seekers, runners, cultural explorers, green movementers, peace spreaders, curious ones & more!
Our unique location means that you'll have access to all the fun & activities you'd want to enjoy in Austin, as well as all the comfort & amenities you'd expect to find on vacation.
Nestled in the middle of everything Austin, our community loft space accommodates up to 8 people at a time with 2 shared bathrooms. Our home offers an array of options for an active/social lifestyle - walk to Zilker Park, Barton Springs, hike/bike trail, restaurants, bars and downtown.
Our spacious deck overlooks restaurant row, has views of downtown and is a great place for relaxing with a cup of coffee, afternoon cocktail or grilling with friends.
This listing is for a single (twin) bed in a double (shared) room with two twin beds. Beds are comfy. It's not uncommon to reserve this listing and end up w/ the whole room to yourself (especially weekdays). The bathroom is shared.
At SWAP Loft Austin, we believe that home is not a place, but a feeling. And at a time when so many of us simultaneously crave both freedom AND community, we've created a home-base where you can find the inspiration you're looking for...
One of the amazing things about Stay Work And Play Austin is that you'll have access to both our Barton Springs loft (where you'll "stay"), as well as our downtown sister loft for coworking/events - this complex embodies the definition of loft more than any other Downtown Austin property.
So you'll be able to work, play & have a BLAST in the two most-desired Austin neighborhoods (Downtown & Barton Springs/Zilker Park)...all in the same trip! Plus you'll meet amazing people along the way.
We are mainly looking for longer-stay guests (one month +), but shorter stays may be possible - just ask!
Our coworking/meeting space is available for events at a different rate: $100/hour for up to 50 guests (10am - 10pm only).
And great work starts at home, so while you're calling Austin "home", you'll have access to our coworking space (and all the inspired people who'll be sharing it with you!). Hit the office as soon as you wake up (!), but be prepared for balance: we have just as much fun outside the office, with optional activities & events offered daily.
We have a strong balance of long-term and short-term residents to maintain a nice, consistent flow while staying true to the culture and spirit of co-living and sharing space, spirit & FUN!

Likely Texas’ best known street, the seven block’s of 6th Street between Congress and IH 35 are certainly Austin’s entertainment center. With a little help from it’s many like-minded sister streets, 6th Street is the heart of Austin’s live entertainment scene and the capital of third coast music.
Sixth Street (formerly known as Pecan Street) is lined with many historical houses and commercial buildings dating from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. The storied old buildings now house numerous bars, a host of live entertainment venues, tattoo parlors, art galleries, casual cafes, upscale restaurants, and the elegant Driskill Hotel. Live music of every genre abounds. From jazz, blues, and country to rock, hip-hop, beat, progressive, metal, punk and derivations of these, there’s something to whet everyone’s musical palette. Great food is a staple on Sixth Street, featuring such regional staples as chili, ribs, and Tex-Mex plus steak, seafood, cajun-cooking, and deli.
Sixth Street draws an eclectic bunch including endless streams of mostly single UT students, the YUP’s, the burb’s, some interesting street folk,and lot’s of out of town visitors. It’s not uncommon to spy some celebrity type taking in the sights on 6th. From film folk to politicians, to music men and women, Sixth Street rubs elbows well. Dress code, yeah right. You’ll see cowboys and punks, surfers and suits. On Halloween anything goes, and during Mardi Gras, everything goes!
Going West from the entertainment area, West Sixth Street offers another suprise with antique stores, art galleries, hair salons, restaurants, and lot’s of eclectic shops.
Sixth Street is Austin’s entertainment showpiece, and deservedly so. Great events like the Austin Mardi Gras celebration, SXSW, The Republic of Texas Bikers Rally, the Pecan Street Festival and Sixth’s Street infamous Haloween celebration all make for great times with great people.
