I always stay in hotels when traveling but this hostel is just great! You can simply not beat the location as it is located in walking distance of all cool places in Asheville. The hostel is super clean. The rooms are big and the sheets and towels are nice, clean and soft. i was a bit worried about noise, but... More

This is a great hostel - very clean and 5 minute walk to Aston and Biltmore. It's definitely a hostel - shared bathroom, no TV in the bedroom - but you do get your own private room. The price is impossible to beat - I paid $60 (it was just me) per night, Friday and Saturday. There is also a... More

My friend and I decided to take a road trip to Asheville and I found the guesthouse online and we decided to give it a try. It's a very good value - modest price, very clean, very friendly staff, amazing location. We had a great weekend!

I've spent a lot of time in hostels & guest houses in Europe, but none compare to Asheville Hostel & Guest House, which is clean, comfortable and has all the amenities you would need for a great stay. The guys who run the hostel meet & greet you and talk you through Asheville downtown on a map and recommend nearby... More

This place can not be beat when it come to all around value. It is in a perfect location to walk to many of Asheville's brew-pubs and shops. The hostel was clean and the staff were helpful and friendly.

For $50 a night for a private room in the heart of downtown with free parking and breweries and restaurants within walking distance, what's not to love? Rooms were clean and I never had an issue with noise. If you haven't been, Asheville is a cool town. Maybe my favorite city/town on the east coast!

I stayed at ALOFT the last time I wanted to stay right in downtown. This place is only two blocks away.....at 1/3 the cost. This was first time staying anything other than hotels when I travel, but it didn't disappoint. I had stayed at "tiny house" which is a converted shack behind the house. It is self-contained with its own... More

My brother and I enjoyed our stay in a bedroom with two beds. Very clean. Nice, helpful staff. Good location. Had to wait once to use the restroom. Other guests were nice. Great price. Would book again!

We enjoyed our stay at the hostel. We kept our expectations in line with hostel lodging and were more than satisfied - clean rooms, hot water, friendly and knowledgable host, affordable, close to downtown yet quiet neighborhood, decent mattress, and well enforced 10pm quiet time. Much value for low rates!

My boyfriend and I stayed in the "couples" room for one night (a Monday night). We were driving north from the coast and thought it'd be cool to check out Asheville for the night. Asheville Hostel is perfectly located: two blocks off the main street where it's peaceful and quiet, but close enough to walk the entire city. We found... More
