The Experience

Welcome to the South! Where you will fall in love with grits, sweet tea, and the NotSo Hostel! We're looking for someone who is committed to making our hostel the best it can be! Someone who can befriend other guests and get the job done each morning as well. We would love for someone to come to the hostel and not only walk away with a love for Charleston but also a love for the place they will call home. Namaste. <3

Notso Hostel is a great spot in a beautiful location on Spring Street. The staff were very kind and welcoming. I had to leave early for an audition that I had but my time there was a great experience.
