    My friend and I took my nieces for three days. Our family size room was clean and the bathrooms were immaculate. The restaurant made delicious meals, different every evening. And all meals were so reasonable. Very family friendly. Will definitely return !

    Amazing place to stay if visiting Yosemite! Their location is amazing, their food is amazing, and they have awesome amenities like the hot and spa. The beds are a super comfortable memory foam, their AC works brilliantly, and their cheesecake!!!! Oh man. Only about 30 minutes away from Yosemite park entrance. Absolutely the place to stay for Yosemite!!

    Nice cabin accommodation in the hills. I was in a mixed dorm which had large lockers and an ensuite bathroom. I arrived pretty late at night though and it was a struggle to find a parking spot (I would not park in the overflow parking which is up a very steep hill and quite far from the cabins). The kitchen was tiny, but the onsite cafe was great! Their breakfast was awesome and they had cold brew coffee available for self-serve. About an hour drive to Yosemite Valley.

    This is a lovely hostel! The food at the lodge is exceptional and the staff super friendly. I had wild halibut with crab...definitely not typical hostel food and the prices are fair. The beds are comfortable and other visitors were considerate. The drive to Yosemite is convenient and there are even buses and shuttles that stop at the hostel. I did not use the spa facilities but will the next time I stay at Yosemite Bug.

    We loved the Bug! Very relaxing place, great to unwind. we took a yoga class and a soak and really enjoyed the spa facility. The food and atmosphere at the Face is awesome. The kids loved the games, table tennis and firepit with smores and music. Very helpful staff, everything you need. Some guests opted for the guest kitchen which is also very convenient for families. We used the frig in our room to store snacks, and drinks that we needed. Great place, great area!

    I was doing a road trip with my daughter up north and wanted to be around nature. Just the essentials: bed, bath, full-kitchen, free parking). The hostel was beyond old school in a feel good kinda way. The staff here are hella nice and the atmosphere is so zen. Most folx that stay here come to be around nature and or relaxation (I came during the week; Wednesday, Thursday, Friday) so it was nice and lonely. Massages are over priced, but the Spa Pass $12 is worth it!

    If you are a commuter, while the discount given by the Bug is a great reward, the Yarts bus is not that reliable. There is a big gap between 12.10 and 18.00 for a bus from the bug to yosemite village. This is fine as an an incentive to start your day early but on our second day the 10.00 did not turn up so we waited 2 hrs for 12.10. On the return the Yarts was late all 3 nights by 1.5hrs, 45 mins, 30 mins. The bus takes 1hr 20 or so also. So the bus reliance can really eat into your time.

    Great accommodation in a great location. Yosemite National Park is a beautiful place to visit and this hostel does well to fit in to the environment. The rooms were nice and spacious and very well maintain. I would definitely recommend this hostel

    Facilities are a little run down. The restaurant serves delicious food though I thought the dinner was kind of expensive. The people were friendly and the location was decent for access to Yosemite. The room was comfortable and bathrooms were decent - can’t really ask for much more from a hostel.

    The room where we stayed the first day was overcrowded, it was suppose to be only 12 of us but they decided to add an extra bed so it was 13 people with a bed right in the middle of everyone. The linnen is clean and the rooms are cleaned every morning but the common areas are pretty much dirty. We always recleaned everything in the kitchen before using it because of this. The staff is not friendly and seems more excited to talk to each other than to advise. I think the location is convenient.
