The room I have been living in is actually a shed, no insulation so it got very cold and it was very clustered, almost no room at all. Will not recommend this hostel, unfortunately

Staff was super relaxed. From the moment I got there saras made me feel welcome. Shower was very nice and the pump body soap/shampoo was helpful. The beds were comfortable (not a spring mattress). The wooden bed frames helped keep things quite in the night. I stayed at sweet pea the following night to be downtown for a night as well and this was definitely the better option for the reasons I listed. For those who are not familiar with the area, west Asheville is a cool place that’s not as hectic

Whenever I am in Asheville, this is my go to place. It’s affordable and I usually get to talk to someone interesting. I was on the top bunk and it was extremely hot. I went downstairs and talked to the lady on duty and she came up and produced a box fan that we got situated and it was great from then on.
