Never been to a hostel b4. Let me say the front desk was more than happy to answer all my questions about safety. I was a single woman traveling alone. So it was nice they had 2 locked doors to come in to the hostel. On entering check in was swift. Staff was awesome. I ask for a bottom pod... More

Sweet peas is a great find in an ideal location. Everything is on your doorstep! We heard it could get a little noisy as the shared rooms are separated with open topped walls, but had no problems with this and slept well. Staff were friendly and helpful and it's one of the cleanest places I've stayed. More appropriate if you're... More

The sweet pea is above a brewery in downtown. It is in a great area if you are interested in going on brewery tours and eating at some great restaurants. We booked a private room, which included a sink. The place is very clean, and is a great option if you're on a budget. The room was very dark, because... More

I needed in inexpensive place to say in downtown Asheville, I found this through a google search. I was skeptical as I have never stayed in a Hostel before and a lot of the reviews mentioned noise from the brewery below, I thought I would take a chance. I made my reservation by phone with no issues, I was lucky... More

The idea of a hostel in the day and age of airbnb has essentially made them pointless, since a big reason anyone stays at one is for an inexpensive place to sleep and to keep as a base. Sweet Peas has one thing going for it, its downtown location. Unfortunately that is also a detriment, since it happens to be... More

I loved Sweet Pea and am looking forward to returning. Clean. Classic entrance off a brewery storage hallway. Great location in the middle of old Asheville. Helpful, friendly staff. Modern facilities - toilets and tiled showers. Reasonably priced parking garage across the street. I had a private room on a Friday night. The room size and furnishings were a good... More

Truly disturbing. I was not informed of the check-in by 10PM policy when I called and made reservations (even though I asked about it) and so my friend and I ended up on the streets in the middle of the night with nowhere to stay.

I wasn't sure what to expect when booking Sweet Pea's, but I was pleasantly surprised. Usually I am a hotel kind of girl -- I like my privacy, my extra towels, room service and some extra space to sprawl out, so I didn't know if this would be a great fit for me but I really liked it! I stayed... More

We loved staying here at the Sweet Pea Hostel. This modern hostel is perfectly located in Downtown Asheville. Some might think that its too perfectly located. The hostel is located right above a bar/music venue and when checking in they will give you ear plugs if you need them. We didn't need them. There are so many great options to... More

I went back and forth between rating this 3 or 4 stars. The place is a very well kept and sharp looking hostel in the heart of Asheville. It is a phenomenal location if you are just wanting to explore the town for a weekend as it's easy walking distance to a multitude of restaurants and breweries. Everything seemed to... More
