    Great little hostel. Various different types of rooms that you can stay in as well. I was in a dorm with 6 other friends and it worked out just fine. The kitchen is clean and full of friendly people and plenty of utensils. Also, the hour drive to Yosemite from the rustic bug resort is totally worth. Such a beautiful drive! I would recommend here if you don’t want to break the bank.

    Nice hostel close to Yosemite. We had a great stay at this hostel. The room and bathroom were very clean in an excellent location to go hiking. The restaurant was marvelous. They had many different types of food and the quality was really good. I will repeat.

    One of the best hostels in terms of facilities that Ive stayed at. 40 minute drive to the national park and 20 minutes from the closest stores.

    Great stay at Yosemite Bug, loved the restaurant in particular. Had the best steak dinner and amazing packed lunch for Yosemite the next day!!Good heater system for the colder months. Only thing that could be improved is the wifi connection :)

    Great place to stay. Ample parking and easy to find from the 140. Close to Yosemite directly along the 140 but for a lot less money compared to closer hotels. Bus runs direct to the park but best if you have a car. In the winter the cabins were warm and comfortable. The local cafe on site did excellent food which was reasonably priced but could get expensive if you ate there everyday. There is a kitchen for general use as well though. Great place to stay I’ll be back!

    Amazing chilled out environment to come back to following a day in the park, cosy but comfortable dorms with ample space. The 10 minute walk to bus and hour long ride to the park is a shame but you know that when booking.. Really great home made grub, although staff in the restaurant seemed a bit moody and would just kind of plonk your food down on the table. Social environment, many guests appear friendly and engaging. Would visit again!

    Amazing stay for the price. The beds were comfortable, clearn, and I liked how the bathrooms were in the room. The wifi connection is good in the rooms but not so much around the property (I had some work to do) but I am sure most residents who are there to unplug don't mind. I used it to stay the night in the area so I can get an early start in to Yosemite and it worked out perfect. I am a coffee junkie and there are unfortunately no coffee shops around that are open early, so bring your own.

    Nice place but I have a few things I'd like to highlight. The good: nice food, lovely staff, nice spa area, comfortable mattress, plentiful parking, draught beer The bad: dirty cutlery every day, freezing cold rooms at night, credit card machines barely worked (there is an ATM though), shower is high enough only for people 5 ft and below.

    Very Good

    24 Oct 2019
    Such a good place to stay during our trip to Yosemite! It’s cute and indeed rustic! The only sticking point for us was that there’s very limited parking spaces and they make you drive up the mountain to the top (literally called Ridge Top Car Park) and then walk back down, and if it’s dark it’s unlit. If you’re going to make guests do this, at least install some dim lighting. We stayed in the hostel part, some of the towels and the bathrooms were old and hadn’t been refurbished in a long while.
