    My stay at the NotSo Hostel was wonderful. The location is excellent, centrally located in a lovely part of town, and the hostel is unique and charming. The rooms are cozy, the veranda overlooking the street my favorite, and the staff is friendly and very accommodating. I highly recommend the NotSo Hostel.

    Notso Hostel has been a great stay all around! Check-in was easy, the rooms are clean, staff is friendly and the location is right by King street which is where the town really comes alive. The staff has been extremely easy to work with in terms of storing luggage and working around check-in/check-out times to get the most out of the experience. I would highly recommend staying here. Thank you!

    Great place! Loved the area! The money was definitely more for the location rather than the facility. But both is great.

    Nice hostel for the money. My only complaint is that the wifi was struggling to connect on my phone at times. Other than that, the staff was nice. Oh and the breakfast is oatmeal that they get from the store and the coffee isn't too bad. But it's in a good location, 25 min walk to King Street and about 45 to the waterfront.

    Great location and great for the price! The only thing I would mention was that the breakfast provided was just oatmeal in the kitchen. Also, the walls were pretty thin so be prepared to hear other guests in their rooms. There is a great parking lot for your car as well!

    Located in downtown charlston. 15 minutes from folley beach. Good location. Staff are friendly. Place is clean. Has a nice balcony Has a nice porch Would recommend for a few days stay. Check-in process could be better. They don't have a common area which would be great for people to meet and greet. Still good hostel

    There was an email sent with the directions on how to get in. I did not meet anyone. Sleeping rooms are upstairs. The bathrooms are downstairs. I ended up with an upper bunk
