    I stayed here for two nights and had two very comfortable nights sleep and sat in the cafe area for the first day and watched the world go by! It was very calming and also had some great food

    My stay at the Bug was wonderful! Although it is an hour away from Yosemite, I wouldn’t recommend staying anywhere else. The rooms are nice and clean and the land is beautiful. On top of that you have the Health spa and June bug cafe. The health spa was amazing! After a long day of hiking, it was very relaxing to sit in the sauna or hot tub, and for only $12 a day! And the cafe, has some of the best food I’ve ever had! Vegetarian friendly and absolutely delicious! Cant praise this resort more!

    Very friendly and fair staff. I cancelled 2/3 nights due to change of plans and was refunded no questions asked. The facilities are great and the yoga studio is just perfect. One small issue is that the mattress in the dorm bunk bed was pretty worn out. But I slept well nonetheless. The restaurant is also charming.

    This was the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in. The 6-bed mixed dorm had its own bathroom and it was very nice. The facilities looked kept up, the water was hot. Towels provided. Bathroom had ample space to move around. The food at the restaurant was tasty, and a lot cheaper than equivalent food at Yosemite. It is about one hour to get to Yosemite Valley. There are closer hotels, but none this cheap. Parking is slightly inconvenient. You have to park up a steep hill.

    Not quite a hostel, more like a hostel meets a camping resort, but so close to Yosemite and definitely worth the price for the amenities provided! Very nice staff as well

    The place is around 1-hr ride to Yosemite Visitor Center by YARTS - cheapest and good option if you travel alone. Their cafe provides lunch and dinner and even packed lunch — they also serve homemade cakes if you happen to have the cravings. Best is the public-transportation discount 10% off on everything (food, accommodation, spa, etc.)~

    Only stayed for 1 night, weather was poor so I didn’t get chance to really explore the site or facilities. My friend did get hold of the guitar from reception and started belting out Oasis around the soggy campfire (apologies to all who were subject to that torture). Upgraded to a private room, which was quaint, clean and comfy. Food in the restaurant was good, not too overpriced and we picked up a lovely packed lunch to take to Yosemite the next morning. I’d definitely stay here again.

    I booked my room reservation 5 months in advance and when I went to check in it was not in their system, but they did find it on the computer later. Problem was, with the exception of a bunk bed, they were booked solid. To accommodate me they gave me a two story house to stay in, all by myself. Thoughtful of them to accommodate me, but it was too much house, too remote and far from my other friends staying there, and too big for me to feel comfortable in, so I slept on the couch upstairs.

    Property is a far Drive from Yosemite, which would have been fine if it wasn’t for how rude or disinterested the staff was in costumer service. All the staff I interacted with never smiled and seemed like they were almost annoyed by my being there. This was ESPECIALLY true of the woman in the hot tub spa area who took a huge bite of her food when I walked in and asked a simple question, scowled at me the entire exchange, and argued with another guest. Would not return.
