6th street was fun but a lot of aggressive homeless near the old area of 6th. You need to go there for the historical aspect of it. But, there were some other areas downtown that we enjoyed to get our drinking on, like the warehouse...More
Amazing area, great places to eat/drink, great places to hangout. This typically would be the heart of the city - you can keep walking around the area late in the evening. Friday and saturday nights post 10 PM till 2 AM is a great experience....More

Personally I wouldnt be hung up on staying specifically on 6th St. Maybe go online to see what is available nearby at best rate. For the next 2 weeks availability will be very tight / expensive with SxSW festival on
