          LOVED the NotSo Hostel. Very friendly staff, comfortable (although small) dorm rooms, cheap prices. The main building's location is pretty good, but the Annex is even more centrally located. Breakfast was minimal but fine. I would definitely go back here if I ever go to...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! :)
