    I have been going to "NotSo" for past four years for my mini-vacation-get-a-ways. Always a delight meeting folks from round the world and making new friends. Great location to historic downtown and beaches via foot, bike, bus, taxi or your own auto. Dorm style or...More

    If you understand the hostel experience, you will certainly appreciate this one which, in addition to private rooms, also includes a studio with a kitchen and private bathroom and deck outside the glass patio door. And if you appreciate old historic buildings you will really...More

    Never stayed at a hostel but was very impressed. Staff was very friendly. The atmosphere was very laid back and inviting. Learning about other visitors' travels around the breakfast table was a great experience and it was fun to share our trip plans as well....More

    I had high hopes for notsohostel, which is somewhat unlike me, so maybe that's where I went wrong. My main gripe was the fact the hostel is a good 40min walk from the main sights of the oldtown. Granted there are public and free buses...More

    Hi! Your reviews look terrific! I am a single traveler, 59, who would like a single room for a 3-day weekend in early November (Not sure of the exact date yet). Do you have single rooms? Also, you are advertised as the only hostel in Charleston, but it seems you have two addresses? Are they both within walking distance of the center of town? Finally, are you easy to reach from the airport? That's all my questions! :)
