Our Yosemite Health Spa offers hot tub, hot rocks sauna, yoga studio and massage therapies. We also have group accommodations and facilities with packages.

We are 27 miles from stunning Yosemite Valley here going up the Merced River Wild and Scenic Area to get there. This river is excellent for running, swimming or mountain biking.

Our desk staff and website are well versed about activities and hikes in Yosemite National Park, the Sequoia Tree Groves, and the High Sierra. The Merced River Wild and Scenic Area nearby offers great summer swimming, and whitewater rafting in the spring. Our property has a 1 hour nature trail and a spring swimming hole, ping pong, foosball and other games.

    The Yosemite Bug is a great and fun place to stay, eat, hike, and have fun. The rustic atmosphere is heartwarming. All the staff is super friendly and helpful. The food in the dinning hall is creative, and delicious. The trails around the Bug are challenging and beautiful. I found a swimming hole nearby too. It is also a 30 minute drive to the park, which makes it convenient. I loved the Spa after long days hiking. Thanks

    We really enjoyed our stay at Yosemite Bug. It was easy to get into the park with about an hour drive. The food was good and convenient. The facilities (we used the bathrooms and showers) were always clean and well-stocked.

    The room was clean and spacious and the dining hall was nice. WiFi can be a bit slow, and there’s nothing in walking distance. Not much of a hostel vibe since it’s also half hotel, but definitely a great choice on a budget to visit yosemite!

    If you’d like a relaxed, friendly, unpretentious atmosphere that’s a great bargain, this is the place for you. The restaurant is excellent, and there’s also a spa! Nothing fancy, and the rooms can be a bit quirky, but the staff is right there to help you with any workaround or fix that is necessary. Very kid-friendly as well. Highly recommended!

    This was a great location for a Yosemite trip! The food was slightly on the expensive side at the Cafe and had restricted vegetarian options but it was very good! For a solo traveler always a good spot to meet others and have a chance at exploring with company! Overall a very good location with affordable lodging!

    The Hostel looks like a pretty little village inside the forest and is easily accessible by car. The dorms are clean and have nice bathrooms/showers. Towels and soap (bodywash, shampoo, conditioner) are provided. The kitchen is big and hs enough room for multiple people to cook at the same time and has a large fridge to store food. It is to notice that the hostel is about 45 miles away from Yosemite Park, which is about an hour drive.

    Fine hostel. Clean. Not great beds. Don't think the lock worked on our dorm room but at least there where lockers in the room.

    We rented cabin there, upon arrival we were told the kitchen was closed unexpectedly, so had to rush back to Mariposa before the diners closed. Unfortunately due to coming back late from dinner elsewhere, we had to haul the bags down a road to the bottom of a large hill. The tent had very comfy beds but one of the inner fabric cabin walls covered entirely in black mould. Its open to the elements but a bleach wipe would remove the large wall of mould. Avoid cabin tent if u suffer with chest.

    Don't recommend the dorms. They have other tyes of accommodation but gets snatched up pretty quick. Also don't recommend if you're going to do Half Dome or any of the strenuous hikes. The drive back will feel brutal. Better to stay in the park if possible. Staff is awesome,loved the spa and restaurant.
