          Stayed in a private room in the annex. Easy check in process. Small but comfortable room at a great price. Fast wifi. Enjoyed the recommendations that were left in the room about restaurants and points of interest. No complaints!

          Hi! Your reviews look terrific! I am a single traveler, 59, who would like a single room for a 3-day weekend in early November (Not sure of the exact date yet). Do you have single rooms? Also, you are advertised as the only hostel in Charleston, but it seems you have two addresses? Are they both within walking distance of the center of town? Finally, are you easy to reach from the airport? That's all my questions! :)
