    This is one of those great hostels where you really feel at home. Comfy, sturdy beds, a nice fluffy towel, single-occupancy bathrooms that are sparkling clean, these are the touches that make NotSo Hostel so comfortable. There's also a great atmosphere provided by the staff and the occasional bonfire at night in the backyard. My personal highlight: Best coffee I've ever had in a hostel!

    Thanks so much to Vicki (sp?) and the staff for putting up with all of us during the 2nd annual AHC. It was so nice to finally stay here and meet all these wonderful owners. The hostel has everything you will need and should expect from hostel accommodations. There is a great outside area where people from the different buildings can congregate and socialize around the bonfire. Can't wait to come back next year!

    Beautiful house located walking distance from King Street. Clean rooms, kitchen and multiple bathrooms available. The staff was my favorite part! Ariana (she works there) cooked a nice soup for dinner and it was delicious! She was so fun and she created a nice environment for us to talk and make friends with the other people staying at the hostel. I definitely recommend staying here! I was on a road trip, but even if I was to go there by myself I’m sure I would never feel alone.

    I love the Notso Hostel! Have stayed there twice now and will always return when I am in town. The location is great, the staff super nice. The grounds are lovely. The only thing lacking is a comfy hang out area. They close the only room with couches at 10 and you have either the kitchens or the small rooms in the outter houses which aren't like my couch at home, but for all the other great benefits I love it!

    Spacious with 2 kitchens and healthy oatmeal or grits breakfast. Quiet place. A bit of a walk from the green line free trolley and a long ride on the free purple trolley but a nice neighbourhood with lovely garden out front. Great food and bar options nearby. Totally would go back.

    Charleston's NotSo Hostel is great! Cute, clean, and good value for your money. I'm really glad a hostel like this exists in Charleston. So many hostels have such terrible reviews, for being dirty and sketchy, and it's really frustrating to have to pay triple digits for a hotel, when all you want is somewhere clean and safe to sleep for a few hours. This hostel is exactly that. For a nearly standard rate of $32, you get a really good deal. I definitely recommend it and hope to return!

    This is a collection of wonderful old 2 story building with great lage porches on both floors. I was in a 4 bed room, slightly crowded, but pretty. Breakfast is self-serve, instnt oatmeal, and coffee or tea (which is available all day. Staff and manager are very nice. I enjoy this place I have stayed before and would stay again.

    I loved the house itself and the location was excellent! Everything was clean, secure, and staff was great. The only issue I had was in our room (4 bed female dorm - Cyprus). I was in the top bunk and had a difficult time getting into or out of bed without getting hit by the ceiling fan. Also, there was one ladder for both top bunks to share so we had to strategically place it so either of us could get to it in the morning. The rungs on the ladder were thin and uncomfortable when using.

    Location was beautiful and quiet. Near enough (close to a mile) to the downtown tourist section. Staff were very nice. Accommodations were so uncomfortable. The dorm room was so small, it did not accommodate four people comfortably. The room itself had a low wall with a ceiling fan. I hit my head getting into my bunk bed because it's so close to the ceiling. Bed was uncomfortable. Shower was clogged. It wasn't for me so I left after one day.
