“You can't go wrong with the Asheville Hostel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2012

What a great spot! I just got back from a weekend in Asheville and the Asheville Hostel was the perfect place to stay! They have the cheapest rates in town, clean rooms, and very friendly owners. We stayed in the “Family” room and it was the perfect size for 4 people. I will definitely stay here again.

Loved the place!
This was an excellent choice of where to stay when you want to be very close to town.
I came in late on the greyhound bus and BJ gave me a lift from Walnut street. He told me about everything that was good to see in town. There was no charge for using the internet. I really felt at home as the bathroom even has the same style claw bath as I do at home. THe community kitchen works well. I went to the Community theatre at night and walked back to the hostel easily.

Room Tip: I stayed in the friends room and it was very comfortable.

We have stayed at Asheville Hostel and Guest House twice now, and found it to be an excellent alternative to high priced hotels in this popular destination city.
The hostel is spread across two historic bungalows, WALKING DISTANCE TO DOWNTOWN Asheville's restaurants, pubs, and parks. The rooms are large, colorful, some with closets, comfortable beds, and all of the essentials.
The bathrooms are clean and large, and there are plenty of bathrooms to accommodate guests. I think there are only private rooms here, which contributes to the quiet, easy going vibe.
We love having a kitchen available when we travel and the kitchens at the hostel are clean, with ample space for everyone's food, and a full complement of cooking utensils, plates, cups ect...
The rooms are so inexpensive that parents with kids traveling together can just get two rooms! There are also rooms with a queen bed and one or two twins so it is definitely a family friendly hostel.
The owner is a really nice guy, communication was easy, and he and his staff are very helpful but not intrusive.
We highly recommend this hostel!

Room Tip: We stayed in a total of three rooms during the two nights we were here, and all of them were very ni...

My boyfriend and I were looking for an affordable place to stay in Asheville for one night, just to attend a concert and drive back the next day. Neither have us had been to the city before, so we had no idea what to expect. The hostel was SO MUCH MORE than anything we could have expected for that price. It is a beautiful, ivy covered, two-story house with parking right outside, and is located at walking distance from everywhere you could think to go. My bf and I stayed in a room on the second floor - it was roomy, really clean, equipped with a comfortable bed and a wonderful view of the neighborhood outside. The two shared bathrooms were perfectly clean, as is the communal kitchen (yep, you can prepare and store your own food here!). As other people have mentioned, BJ was an awesome host: he gave us a map and pointed out all kinds of places to go to and events that were happening around town which we'd never have known to find by ourselves. We were completely thrilled. When we go back to Asheville - and we will, because it's such a fantastic place - we will never stay anywhere else. It is so cheap but so much more aesthetically pleasing and well-served than hotels generally are.
