Let me start this review, first by telling you that at nights until 2am you are forced to hear loud music. There is a bar downstairs. Secondly, no alcohol is allowed inside the hostel.
The above two things did not bother me because all other things are awesome.
Well located, neat, clean place and big place, friendly staff, nice kitchen, free towel and extra blankets, free locker, and many other things that you may or may not find in other hostels.
Did I say it's well located? It's in the center of the city. You can reach many places in the city on foot. They don't have a parking but one can find free street parking close by. I think they have bikes for rent or free. Not sure about that.
It's basically a big loft with partitions and bunk beds. Personally, I like the lofty look. The living is big and comfortable to sit, relax and read. I found people staying there quite compared to other hostels. Probably, because they don't allow alcohol in the hostel. You know what alcohol does to people ;-)
Free tea and coffee :-)
Overall this is the best place to stay in Asheville.
