Huh? Sounds like you don't like me for some reason, but have you stayed with us? When did you stay here, and specifically what happened? How does "passive aggressive" relate to an individual situation that you experienced? "pas·sive-ag·gres·sive adjective of or denoting a type of...More

My partner and I love this place and stay every time we are in Asheville. The location is perfect, only a 5 minute walk to downtown, the rooms are clean (but simple), and the price is great. Parking on the street is usually pretty easy.

Rude and weird is a good heading for this review. As I always say, guests review themselves. Thankfully, our guests have traditionally been amazing. So this is a very rude and weird review to bother responding to. Someone is desperate for attention, so the takeaway...More

Great location, reasonable price, clean accommodations, friendly staff. And remarkably quiet for a hostel (at least on a week night--we weren't there over a weekend). Would definitely stay here again.
