          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! :)
