Asheville, NC is a mini hipster city located along the blue ridge mountains, filled with hippies, yogis, and musicians on every street corner. If you missed my travel post about this trip, you can read it here. During my time there, I had the pleasure of staying at Sweet Peas hostel, which is a nifty hostel in downtown Asheville, NC.
The hostel was surprisingly swanky, hip, and extremely clean. It is a prime location, right in the middle of the downtown action. It is also right across the street from 2 parking garages, so you don’t need to worry about finding parking downtown. The room options included bunks, pods (bunks with lockers and a privacy curtain), and private rooms.
Pricing is as follows:
Bunks – $28/night
Pods – $35
Private rooms – $60
Parking garage – $10/day (there is also street parking some areas downtown and a free garage a farther walk away)
The hostel was also incredibly spacious, with plenty of fridge/closet room for food. Included at the hostel are dorm style showers (many), laundry units, DVDs/books, wifi, computers, printers, maps, hiking reviews, and board games. See the common areas below:
The only downside to the hostel was the lack of free parking, but the convenience factor pretty much made up for the cost. I was very pleased with the set-up, and would stay again in a heartbeat.
Now tell me: have you ever been to Asheville? Did you stay in one of the hostels?
