    Bon Paul and Sharky's will always be my favorite place to stay in Asheville! It's close enough to downtown to take an Uber, but West Asheville is also a great spot to hang out!

    Very accommodating. I had traffic related issues come up while driving to the Hostel and the host stayed past her last check in time so I could get settled. Very laid back and perfect location if you're wanting to explore some of Ashville.

    Very impressed with the cleanliness. Personally, I have difficulty falling asleep at a different location other than my own bedroom, but my room was quiet and all guests were respectful. Plus, there is an abundance of bars and shops all within walking distance.

    What a wonderful experience I had at Bon Paul & Sharky's Hostel. I felt very much at home there and was totally blown away by how well run/efficient it was and how comfortable everything was. I probably will never stay in a hotel again!

    Staff were helpful. Location is kind of far from downtown, but there are plenty of nice restaurants, breweries, and parks nearby. It was cheaper per night to extend my stay a night than it was to book in the first place. Potentially good to know if you're not sure how long to stay. They have a decked out spice rack with most of the spices you could want. Big plus for me

    Location is great. I recommend the Retrocade bar for some classic arcade games and the Odd Cafe for coffee in the morning. The facilities are ok - bathroom needs to be updated. Free earplugs were a nice touch.

    I stayed there 2 nights, about 2 days apart from each other. My first stay, The outdoor dorm was small, crowded and uncomfortable. In my 2nd stay the indoor upstairs co ed dorm felt spacious and cozy.

    Dorm was a tight fit. Difficult to place the fan to cool the whole room on hot nights. Steady street noise from cars and passersby from the bars along the way on a weekday. I've tried different styles of hostels (and know what will not suit me) so just a little disappointed this particular one didn't work out for me based on current reviews.
