    This place was amazing! We stayed at a tent and it was furnished in such a cute way. The bathrooms were very clean and so was the community kitchen. We did not even know before that there was a kitchen, so we were pleasently surprised. We met wonderful people at the kitchen and had dinner with them. The location is great, for this price we would have not found anything better so close to the gate of Yosemite. The surrounding nature is beautiful and the receptionist was very friendly and helpful!

    Would totally recommended! It was perfect for staying in the mountains. As a solo traveler, Yosemite Bug offered me the vibe of camping while also being comfortable and secure. Yummy food, good common space, and friendly staff. Thank you!

    It was my first time staying in a hostel setup on vacation and there is no reason I wouldn’t do it again. I absolutely loved the experience !!

    Best hostel I’ve stayed in recent years. Bed is comfortable and bathroom is spacious and clean. The water temperature was a bit hard to control during shower. It also has an outdoor sitting area with lounge chairs. The kitchen has the basics but I think it’s a little small—gets crowded if more than 3 people are in there. My biggest issue was with the noise from the adjacent cabin. The noise traveled through the shared wood foundation and wall. Good luck if a family with kids stay next door.

    I loved my stay at Yosemite bug! I wish it was a little closer to the park but for the money I paid it was totally worth it! The female dorm was spacious and bathroom was extra clean. The kitchen area was nice albeit a little confusing layout. I highly recommend.

    Location was perfect, one of the closest places you can stay to the park -- and for way less! Warm blankets, AC, great (but expensive) food at the diner, etc. I would have liked to see more covid protocols in place to help feel safe during this time where cases are rapidly increasing (there was no masks anywhere, no distancing, capacity limits, hand sanitization stations, etc). Also the spa was not worth the entry fee and it was advertised on this listing as if it was free.

    This is a fantastic and one of the biggest hostel I have stayed. The facility is well maintained, which has a fully functional communal kitchen and a good size refrigerator for food. My only complaint is that this hostel is a bit far from the Yosemite park (about 50 minutes drive to the park). But you cannot beat the price, especially if you travels along.

    This place is in the middle of nowhere. They did not receive my email a week prior to arrival requesting a bottom bunk due to a knee injury. I called to verify but “all bottom bunks were taken”. They offered me a private room for $55 It was hard AF to find a building while hangry at 1045 at night having to walk from 1 place to another on a bad knee that is poorly lit and labeled. Map doesn’t help if you can’t see. Good clean rooms and beds. Nice toiletries and clean restrooms. Would stay again.
