Never stayed at a hostel but was very impressed. Staff was very friendly. The atmosphere was very laid back and inviting. Learning about other visitors' travels around the breakfast table was a great experience and it was fun to share our trip plans as well. My only suggestion is to offer a mattress pad; sheets by themselves reminded me of summer camp. Not uncomfortable but a bit too minimal.
Some other reviews state that it is too far from downtown but I disagree... I've paid for metered street parking in Charleston and still had to walk further. I've visit Charleston at least once per year but rarely get to enjoy the downtown because of road traffic and the cost and difficulty finding parking. Finding the NotSo Hostel has made the beauty and character of Charleston accessible. I'm hoping to return with my wife in a few weeks.
