Sketchy but cheap

My boyfriend and I are both working students, and this place gives us a spacious, affordable place to live, but it's not ideal. It's definitely sketchy: you hear plenty of domestic arguments, the grounds are poorly kept (it's not cool to walk the dog around broken glass), and management gives conflicting instructions. It's still a decent option for being close to transit, quick grocery trips, and cool bars like Buzzmill.

Getting around Riverside


Riverside Reviews

15 reviews
Riverside is an accessible and eclectic community. It is directly on the river, which is possibly the best part of the apartment. There is a lot of traffic in this area but that is somewhat understandable.
Great location near the river, but things are spread out and it is further from UT campus.
There's lots to do, eat, and drink right in the Riverside neighborhood, and getting to downtown or the East side is so easy if you want to do something different. Lots of great local spots to eat (mostly counter-service style), ranging from sports bars to Tex Mex to Vietnamese food. There's plenty of standard chain restaurants as well (again mostly counter service places). Being close to the Town Lake trail is prime. Some areas don't feel very safe at night, but most of the streets are well-lit. Police often patrol the area, which could make you feel safer or more concerned. Overall, a great area to live that is constantly improving!
Riverside drive especially the east part is relatively a new growing neighborhood. Grocery shops like Walgreens, CVS and HEB are nearby. It is also a relatively safe area and calm. It is close to UT campus with a 10 min drive only in normal traffic.

Moreover it is surrounded with the beautiful access to the river and lady bird lake.
Night life is a bit not much available and most of the action is in downtown of Austin which is very close.
Riverside is growing with many restaurants and grocery shops. There are some constructions going on and it is relatively quiet unless it is rush hours.
It is close to downtown and to UT campus.

Relatively less safe than downtown because of homeless people around.
Riverside neighborhood is a growing neighborhood with many restaurant chains and local tex-mex restaurants. Many gaz stations and many grocery stores. 15 min to UT and 10 min to Downtown with a quick access to the river trails.
Awesome neighbors. Management sucks.
Pros: travel time to fun areas around the city by car, easy parking
Cons: Pretty ghetto, can't walk anywhere, not IN any of the fun neighborhoods. Feels like a suburb.
