    Mellow Mountain was an awesome place for my weekend getaway. 5 minute walk to the casinos, Heavenly, and Lake Tahoe. Community was full of great individuals from all over, who were all extremely friendly and social. Will definitely be planning another trip back soon!

    I’m so reluctant to leave a review. Not because it’s a bad place. I just feel like I will give away my perfect little gem. Just WOW! This place is so amazing. From the friendly super chill staff, cover parking, the people staying, the vibe of the hostel and not to mention the location. Walking distance to everything: 12 minute walk to casinos, Heavenly literally a 5 minute walk, central to everything. 20/10 recommend it. I can’t wait to be back.

    Great location if you are going skiing. It's a block away from the heavenly ski lifts, although those are currently closed. The community room is spacious and outside of COIVD I bet it has great atmosphere. Now groups tend to keep to themselves for the most part. There's also parking spots, but make sure to show up early or else they will run out. I'll be sure to stay again another time.

    My friend and I stayed at Mellow Mountain during our thru-hike of the TRT and it was a dream! There are clean rooms, cozy beds, communal kitchen, and friendly atmosphere. We stayed at Mellow Mountain again for a weekend ski trip to Tahoe. There are ski racks in the rooms. Once again, we had such a great time that we've decided to make this an annual winter trip.

    Do not stay here if you are at all COVID conscious. I consider myself to be a pretty low fear person when it comes to covid however after staying in this place for a few days I felt like I needed to go straight to get a covid test. I barely saw any cleaning happening in the common area and the cleaning I did see was vaccuming not disinfecting high touch surfaces. Also no one was wearing a mask ever and no one was enforcing that masks should be worn. I would only maybe stay here again after vaxed
