Sweet Peas Hostel

Top choice hostel in Asheville

This spick-and-span, well-run, contemporary hostel occupies an unbeatable downtown location. The loft-like open-plan space, with its exposed brick walls, steel bunks and blond-wood sleeping 'pods', can get noisy, but at least there's a 10% discount at the Lexington Ave Brewery downstairs. They also warn you if an event coincides with your planned dates.
