There's nothing about this hostel that would make me want to come back, but if you're in Asheville and need a cheap place to crash, this will meet your needs. The location is good, walkable to downtown, the place is adequately clean, the staff is responsive and helpful, and it's quiet and safe. But it's totally lacking in charm (think...

We both visited Asheville for the first time in September 2016 for the Brewgrass Festival. We chose to stay in this hostel because the location is PERFECT. We were able to walk to tons of restaurants, breweries, and live music venues with the closest ones being only one block away. The location was very clean, both our room and the...

Our first trip to Asheville was amazing, thanks greatly in part to our stay at Asheville Hostel! The cleanest hostel we've ever stayed in, and BJ (the owner) was very friendly and clearly loves what he does- we found some great food (Salsa's!) and events thanks to his suggestions! But the best part was the location of this place- we...

We have stayed at the Hostel and Guest House twice now and both of our experiences were great! Perfect location. Very clean house! Very safe and secure with locks on front and bedroom doors. Very affordable. Service is great too. Managers will try their best to accommodate to you!

Clean. Quiet. Efficient. And because I need 200 characters- Asheville restaurant recommendation: the Broken Egg Cafe. Hiking recommendation: Catawba Falls. Live entertainment: Tressa's and Asheville Music Hall.

We loved staying here. It had the perfect location for walking to bars and restaurants and breweries. BJ was super helpful in telling us where to go and was very responsive via text. The house was quiet and even though there were other people staying there we felt we had a good amount of privacy and space. There was also...

This was a wonderful hostel to stay in, there are no maids and you're responsible for your actions. Don't expect someone to fold your sheets every day and fluff your pillows. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay and the security/privacy that we desired. Staff was able to point out quality places that you can enjoy in your trip...

The owner, BJ, is rude, inconsiderate and mean! I found myself in need of a room for two nights last week. I did not have access to a computer so I asked a friend to find me a hostel in Asheville at an affordable price. I have previously stayed in hostels many times. My credit card was used to make...

I stayed at Asheville Hostel & Guest House along with my boyfriend in October. We drove from Indiana and were running a bit late (we didn't arrive until after midnight). The staff member onsite welcomed us and even sat down with us to show a map of the hostel's surroundings. We were shown to our room where there were clean...
