    The staff were so kind and helpful when I arrived right at 9pm, and I really loved the facility. It was very clean and the showers were super nice. They even provided ear plugs! I stayed in a female dorm with 2 bunkbeds and did not even hear my room mate come back late because I was wearing the ear plugs. The female section was like a mini apartment on a different annex of the main building, which was very cute. The only downside about the annex is the narrow staircase that leads to the rooms.

    The hostel is a house in the typical southern style and located near to the city center. The staff was friendly and the facilities good. Oatmeal is free for breakfast. Only downside: The mattress was quite saggy.

    Adorable!! Hostel was great. I went on a Monday and it was quiet but I still made a wonderful friend. Though generally I imagine it isn’t super easy to make friends at this hostel just because it the common areas are small but who cares because it is perfect...vibe, location. I’m obsessed with Charleston partially bc of my great stay. Plus free parking behind the house!

    The best hostel ever! Such a cute place absolutely loved it! I was in the Andrew Adams dorm and it was very spacious. The kitchen area is very comfortable and social. Coffee was provided and I really appreciated that 😂

    There place was super clean! They had two kitchens which was wonderful - with a free breakfest! The staff was overall friendly, and the building was so cute! The only iffy part was the location, which wasn't horrible it just made me feel uncomfortable at most, but otherwise I would recomend to others :)!

    good hostel,although bit of a hike to centre. take a padlock for the lockers. good decoration and cleanliness. cute buildings. overall good but didn't appreciate having my breakfast fruit that had been ripening on the porch labelled with my name being disposed of by over zealous staff. i'd like to see people eating the food they buy and the hostel setting up a compost bin for the load of stuff that is thrown in the bin. a bird bath supplying water would be nice for the wild life.

    Very comfortable private room. Limited kitchen utensils made it challenging to prepare our meal

    The only hostel in Charleston, makes it the best choice. Its really conveniently located to downtown and the free shuttle bus. Also easy to get to on the local bus from the Amtrak or bus station. It's clean and the staff is friendly. Free coffee and instant breakfast. It has a nice outside porch for hanging out but not really anywhere to chill inside the house. The worst thing about the hostel is plastic covered mattresses and squeaky bunk beds that wiggle. I'd recommend, they really put the effort
