    Stayed here for 4 days and it was great. The location was in a great neighborhood with lots of restaurants and coffee shops. The hostel itself was great. Met some awesome people, bed was super comfortable and the kitchen had all I needed. Would recommend this to anyone looking to explore Asheville and the surrounding area.

    Had an amazing stay here! Shared spaces are respectfully very clean, and the staff were awesome and fun to hang out with :) The female dorm was comfortable, clean, and secure. There are 2.5 baths so never any issues with that! It’s in a great location just outside of downtown Asheville, and within an hour’s drive of many, many, many hiking trails. Loved it :D

    This hostel is absolutely fantastic! Location is great, the people were super friendly and I felt completely safe. My only critique would be for there to be lockers to store your things in. But for the price I can’t complain. 😁

    I had never been to Asheville before so I cannot comment on the location; however, West Asheville was fairly convenient to the activities I had planned and the places I visited. Plus, the hostel is on a main street with several shops to eat, drink and be merry in! There's also a grocery store nearby. Overall, BPS suited my needs for the three nights I stayed.
