I don't think the regular owner/manager was there while we were staying; while the replacement was not fluent in English, he was still very helpful, friendly & professional. He consulted the regular guy when he needed to. No problems whatsoever. Very short drive from a convenience store, probably even walkable. Nice place, clean, great atmosphere.


The hostel is a little funny, but nice! The guy at the checkin was a friendly chinese, but he could improve his english a little ;) The rooms were simple and clean. There were towels and linen. The kitchen was fine, but a fridge would have been awesome! All in all a good stay!

The dorm is the livingroom und there is no door to the kitchen. Only one bathroom for more than 10 people. Everyone has to lock the door, or it is open für everybody. They gave me a key to the same locker like my roommates. You can not trust on the staffs word. If you like a little privacy I wouldn´t recommend the dorm. But because everybody is the whole day in the lovely Yosemite, its a place you can stay if you need to travel on low budget. It´s so sad it could be a realy nice hostel.
