So this was our first hostile stay, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The place was clean - We stayed in the room with a queen size bed and a bunk bed. That's all they had, so we got lucky with scoring a larger room. We were greeted and given a tour as we walked in and felt safe... More

Asheville Hostel is actually two buildings along Ravenscroft drive. I stayed in #16, upstairs. The hostel is an old house converted into a hostel. It has a spacious kitchen area, but is somewhat limited in terms of cups and dishes. Rooms and bathrooms are comfortable, but nothing spectacular. Overall I would rate the hostel between a 3 and 4, but... More

I had never stayed in a hostel before staying at the Asheville Hostel & Guest House so I was a little worried when we arrived. But that concern quickly dissipated. Not only was the price great, but the hosts were very easy going & accomodating. Rarely was the bathroom occupied, actually we rarely even saw other guests while we were... More

The staff was excellent and the hotel was wonderful. The beds are so very comfortable and we just enjoyed it so much. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area. Great location and you can catch the trolley in front of the hotel. Great fitness room and pool.

This was a great little place to stay in Asheville. The one con I have for this place is that you need to call ahead so someone can check you in. We had to wait about 10 minutes for the guy to come over, however that was the only issue and it's minor. The pros defiantly outweigh the con. The... More

I was frustrated upon arrival as I thought that the owner was not answering the phone and we had to wait a while. Then I realised I was calling the wrong number. So once I called the correct number the owner was there almost immediately and we were able to check in. He was very helpful and went over some... More

This hostel was clean, secure, and comfortable. The owner personally shows you around the site upon arrival and maps out the city, restaurants, and entertainment based on your interests. The rooms are exactly like the pictures. Everything in the downtown area is walkable within about 15 minutes. The stairs squeak pretty loudly, so be aware coming and going. I could... More

Between their website and photos on Facebook we knew what to expect and there were no surprises. Everything was as described and as promised. My husband and I stayed in the private room and there was ample room for parking. The room was small and only a curtain for a bathroom door but good location and clean place. Served it's... More

Very nice hotel! Rooms were clean, spacious and comfy. Staff was helpful and went out of their way to make sure everything was good. Close to the Biltmore Estates and Biltmore Village. Restaurant right next door. Next time I visit Asheville, I will be staying here.
