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... More

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... More

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... More

This is a great hostel - very clean and 5 minute walk to Aston and Biltmore. It's definitely a hostel - shared bathroom, no TV in the bedroom - but you do get your own private room. The price is impossible to beat - I paid $60 (it was just me) per night, Friday and Saturday. There is also a... More

My friend and I decided to take a road trip to Asheville and I found the guesthouse online and we decided to give it a try. It's a very good value - modest price, very clean, very friendly staff, amazing location. We had a great weekend!

I've spent a lot of time in hostels & guest houses in Europe, but none compare to Asheville Hostel & Guest House, which is clean, comfortable and has all the amenities you would need for a great stay. The guys who run the hostel meet & greet you and talk you through Asheville downtown on a map and recommend nearby... More
