More information is written through this guide:
Unlocking the Abyss
After finishing the first chapter of the DLC Side Story, you can switch back your main story files to access the Abyss. This means the player is not required to finish the whole side story in order to unlock the hidden town.
To enter the Abyss, the player needs to find the “Shifty Merchant” NPC located within Garreg Mach Monastery. The NPC is located at a narrow corner between Byleth’s personal quarters and the Sauna.
However, to fully maximize the experience of the new content added to the main game, we suggest finishing the DLC side story first.
Inside Abyss, there’s a whole new area for Byleth to explore. This includes the Ashen Wolves classroom and its students.

Unlocking the Ashen Wolves Students

They can be visited once chapter one of Cindered Shadows is finished. Same with the other students, they also have their post-time skip versions. Make to recruit them prior to the post-time skip of your chosen main story route.
Effectively Recruiting the Ashen Wolves
An effective way of recruiting the Ashen Wolves is by finishing the Cindered Shadows DLC Side Story completely.
After finishing the side story, open your main story file and visit the Abyss. Look for the Ashen Wolves and pick the “Recruit” option. After recruiting, each Ashen Wolf student has an Abyss Exam Pass in their respective inventories. The exam pass is not locked to them and it can be used to promote your students from other houses to the new special classes.

As recruited students, the Ashen Wolves can also be a part of the academy’s free day activities. Among which are tea party events, choir practice, and dining.
Tea Party Events
