    As two teenage girls traveling by themselves we felt very safe and secure during our stay. Parking in Charleston is very difficult but this place offered parking that wasn’t on the road which was very nice. The location is amazing and close to everything. It does get hot in the rooms but there is a ceiling fan and a smaller fan that somewhat helps. Overall it was a pleasant experience.

    Wonderful place and walking distance to King St!!! Some great coffee shops in the area as well. Communication via email was great and very responsive. Would definitely recommend! Will look forward to staying here again if we are back in Charleston.

    NotSo Hostel is a clean, budget-friendly option to stay in Charleston. It's located a 10-15 minute from King Street so as long as you don't mind a little bit of walking, the location is very good for the price.

    I stayed at the Carissa Room for two nights and found that the staff and additional guests were very considerate and friendly, which was appreciated. My room was very tidy, but my main concern was the fragility of the door lock. The interior of the lock is completely visible as if the door was forced open at one point, with only a few centimeters of wood left. Please consider replacing the door for future residents' safety, if the local preservation code allows, or install an alternate lock.

    My 12-year-old daughter and I are on a cross-country road trip. This was a terrific place to spend the night and enjoy Charleston. It is an excellent location (just a block from the wonderful King St. filled with cute shops and great restaurants.) The room is basic but that's all we needed. It was so helpful to have our own parking space in the back as parking can be challenging in the area. Vicky was very helpful and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again!

    My only complaint with NotSo Hostel is that I wish there had been more clarification about the rooms being in different buildings and different streets

    Fantastic location just a few blocks from great restaurants and a 30 min walk to the historic district. Staff was very communicative in advance and it was awesome that they let me park there early/leave my car after check out. Room was nice and I loved the porch in the main house. Never had to wait for a bathroom/shower. Only suggestion is it would be nice if y’all provided filtered water - the tap water was pretty gross and the kitchen in general wasn’t super clean.
