    My go-to hostel while I’m in Tahoe for the weekend. Staff is always so friendly! I love the artwork and overall atmosphere of Mellow Mountain. Wish I wouldn’t hype it up so much in case there’s more competition getting a spot here, but that would be a disservice and not fair at all. :) Rooms are super comfy and clean (also with nice artwork inside) - have only stayed in private rooms. Highly recommended!

    Lovely if brief stay. One unique thing about Mellow Mountain is their computer room. Open 24 hours. Everything else more than exceeded expectations

    Enjoyed my stay here over the holidays. I was traveling by myself and Andrew and the staff made sure that I felt right at home. They answered all of my questions, gave me some guidance on good places to eat and even let me hang out with them for a bit one evening! The staff at this location is second to none and I hope to return one day to snowboard Heavenly again.

    Great place to stay, and hang out. The one thing lacking that other hostels have is a coffee maker with coffee and half and half. I admired the artwork everywhere and the people were super friendly and fun.

    All the essentials to cook meals and tune skis before heading to Heavenly gondola. Easily situated among the high end offerings but with free parking! Laundry after 6 pm and $2 and $3 beers! Free, although intermittent, wifi.

    Unbelievable location and fantastic value for the money. As a formal motel, security is poor and facilities are a bit limited. Definitely the place to stay if you want a cheap visit in Tahoe.

    hi Hostel World I called the hostel more than 48 hours in advance and spoke with the manager and I was given the OK to cancel and get the money back. Although I see that you Hostel World still charged me 22.08 dollars for no reason, since it was 100% free cancellation, please I would like to hear back from you asap Let me know how to proceed to get my credit money back, thanks Sebastian
