Saloon, syrup factory, repair shop… The building at the corner of Elm Street and North Crowdus Street, near the city centre of Dallas, has lived several lives. Its last rebirth took the shape of an inn, the only one of the Texan city. Between the highlighting of century-old architectural details, exposed brick walls and a staircase adorned with old cement tiles, the charm of this historic building has been perfectly preserved. Travelling families or groups of friends will choose rooms with bunk beds made of old natural wood. Others looking for more privacy will favour separate bedrooms, showcasing carefully selected vintage decoration. At the heart of the lively Deep Ellum neighbourhood, hotspot of the art scene and nightlife, Deep Ellum Hostel also offers a tapas bar named Izkina (“corner” in Basque language). At night, all you will have to do to enjoy a few pintxos and Spanish wines (in moderation, of course) is to find the entrance: near the front desk, look for a discreet doorway, made of piled-up suitcases.
