Stayed here July 4th weekend. The staff were unfailingly courteous from initial phone call to check-in and check-out. Location couldn't really be better for being central and within walking distance to all of the downtown area. The hostel is very well laid out to optimize space and comfort. The facilities are excellent from kitchen to lounge-around area to showers, laundry... More

I stayed for 3 days at Sweet Pea....I had a private room. The noise did not bother me at all. Place was clean and felt safe. Great location to downtown Asheville....a block away! Bring along a pair of sweats or something to walk to the shower area in and flip flops....refrigerator in kitchen was very loaded up with food....perhaps a... More

Yes, this hostel is wonderfully located. Yes, this hostel is clean and tidy but the floor plan is piss poor. First off, the bathroom and showers are located directly beside the reception area. This makes it feel as if there is no privacy while using the toilet or showering. Secondly, the kitchen is located right next to the "private pods"... More

I just loved Sweet Peas, and I think it rates as the most beautiful hostel I've stayed in at the US. It looks even nicer than the photos on their website. It's an open plan loft, wood floors, raw brick walls, with quality, comfy furniture, great cooking facilities, laundry, multiple shower units with good water pressure and heat, friendly and... More

Owner was friendly enough until a phone went missing. Accusers allowed to approach me while I was in bed (a semi-private pod), then he followed up with 2 more visits, WHILE I WAS IN THE BED, and had me open my locker which contained my undergarments. Phone was found, with no apology from the owner or guarantee that I would... More

The people working and staying at the hostel were so lovely, it was a very "homey" feeling right off the bat! You really had your own personal space with shelves and a curtain barrier (this was perfect as I was feeling a bit ill.) Others socialized by playing board games and watching TV, the kitchen was really lovely and coffee... More

This was my first hostel experience and it was a good one. I was pleasantly greeted and impressed by how cute and clean the place is. I felt very safe and comfortable. I parked across the street at the Rankin Ave parking deck and was able to walk everywhere I needed to for my stay downtown. There is slight noise... More

Sweet Peas is in a fantastic location in Asheville, and has an excellent layout. Great thought has been given in designing the hostel and it works brilliantly, with wonderful light in the communal areas, a spacious kitchen and powerful hot showers. Not a speck of dirt to be seen anywhere, friendly staff and a daily recommendations sheet of what's on... More

Exceptionally clean and well-maintained.I arrived on a Sunday and left on a Wednesday, so I managed to avoid the super loud music of live entertainment at the nearby Brewery. The hostel was relatively quiet most of the day until the bar's piped-in music picked up at dinnertime. It was easy to drown out the noise with earplugs, though, so no... More

Had a great stay here while visiting Asheville for a weekend with a friend. The location was great for exploring Asheville on foot. The open layout and clean, modern design make for a nice atmosphere. As others have mentioned, it's pretty noisy at night -- both from music and snoring guests. That said, if you are a solid sleeper, plan... More
