I am looking for a hostel or a hostel alternative to stay in from Nov 11 - Nov 14th near Columbia.
I noticed some good suggestions in a previous thread: http://travel.stackexchange.com/a/8288/8918
AirBnB offers in the area are very competetive but no one seems to reply to my messages: I am brand new to AirBnB and that might be the reason why?
If a newb has no place on AirBnB, which hostel or a hostel alternative would be a good place to sleep?
It's just a place to rest at night and have my suitcase (it will contain expensive research equipment from school) safe during the day when I am out exploring the city
