    Overall a great hostel, incredible value for location in downtown Charleston! Rooms were comfortable, the walls are thin so noise from neighbors carries (there are quiet hours but they aren’t perfectly enforced) but otherwise no issues at all, highly recommend!

    Wonderful place to stay for the amount of money spent. Room was small but we never spend much time in our room so perfect for us. Very clean. The whole experience was perfect for us. The other guests are nice but keep to themselves, which again, perfect for us. Would stay again.

    It did the trick. I rated staff as neutral not because they weren't nice, I just never saw any staff.

    Nice place in a good location, friendly people and an airy room. The hostel is an easy ~mile walk to downtown Charleston and has easy access. Beds were dorm style and you get exactly what you pay for. Very laid back staff and relaxed atmosphere all around. I would absolutely come back on another trip.

    Great location and price however the building could use some love For example the bathroom door was coming off of its hinges and I fixed the issue for them by simply tightening the screws that affixed it to the wall which allowed the door to actually shut (important for a communal bathroom) The sliding door of our room had multiple wasps nests forming and actively being built by wasps which mean we couldn’t actually open the door to the outside (unless we wanted to deal with angry wasps)

    It's alright. Charming house close to King Street and more affordable than alternatives in Charleston. That being said, the walls are very thin so we couldn't even have a conversation at night without the neighbors knocking. Moreover, the booked ensuite bathroom was extremely tiny and did not have a shower.

    It was soooo expensive to stay here for one night. The website wasn’t working to change a reservation. Also the change fee (even if u complete it within the written guideline) is expensive. I thought a hostel would be economical, but it just wasn’t so. I could have stayed in a nice hotel for what it cost me. Never again will I stay in a hostel.
