    Hostel was fun and clean. Staff is welcoming. The kitchen and computer room were well maintained. The room itself had enough space for 4 women. Bed and pillow were comfortable. Bathroom was clean. I would have liked if shower gel was provided. A body towel was given. I didn't get to use the front deck but it was spacious with a hammock and plenty of benches. Overall I would definitely stay again.

    I LOVED my time here! The staff were truly mellow and friendly. I met a lot of people hiking through the PCT and learned so much from them. The front yard/lounge is a fun gathering place at night. There are several grills and picnic tables out front. Fortunately, the (small) kitchen separates the yard from the rooms. Rooms/bathrooms were clean with linens and towels provided. Laundry room provided. Few machines. A great no-frills, central South Tahoe, relaxing vibe. I highly recommend!

    Typical hostel, perfect if you need a place for sleep but dont want to pay Tahoe prices. No AC in a rooms, but they do have fans. Kitchen was little too dirty for me to use. Parking on a location is appreciated.

    Great location, good common room. Great parking set up. Confusing tax and surcharge situation. It’s nice that rooms have their own bathroom. Unfortunately for me I was up all night as the room was so hot. Make sure to take the bunks near the window and leave it open.
