    Great hostel overall! Receptionists and staff were very friendly, kitchen was organized and convenient to use, cabin rooms and bathroom were clean and spacious enough, and I got a chance to meet other travelers. Thank you!

    Stayed here for 4 night during my visit to Yosemite. It's an hour away from the park but it's a pretty drive. Closest and cheapest place to the park where you can sleep in a bed, get a hot shower, cook food in a full kitchen.

    Really good food and lodging. Kind of far from the park but worth the price (I stayed in the all male dorm for $30/night). 10/10 would stay again

    Loveeee this place. So many amenities and the staff are wonderful. This place has everything you need, and the atmosphere is very appealing. It’s an hour drive outside Yosemite, and at times, the door to my shared room wouldn’t be locked. Simply from others not locking it on their way out, but other than that, no complaints here!

    In terms of proximity to Yosemite National Park and outdoors feel, this place is hard to beat.

    Nice vibe, amazing kitchen, had everything we needed. The restaurant was a nice place to hang out, with a fireplace and games. The rooms were clean, and we had sheets, towels, and shampoo and everything in the bathroom. Everyone was friendly. The resort is about an hour drive from the park. Would definitely stay again!

    Very Good

    Location and cafe are great. Everything was clean. However I was accidentally locked out of my room. There was no phone signal as I ran everywhere on site, no on site security, and the emergency phone by reception wasn't working. A 'helpful' neighbor helped me and kicked open the door to my room. Resulting in my self having to pay $100 dollars. The fact that there was no available help for a situation like this I think Is unsafe and I had to pay when left with no options.

    Location is the best you can get if you plan to visit Yosemite but couldn't get lodging inside the park. I stayed in a shared dorm which had 6 bunk beds (total 12). Don't expect decoration or anything more than what's necessary, but beds were clean and comfortable. Bathroom was okay but needed deeper cleaning and there were spiders under the sink and in the ceiling. Food in the restaurant is AMAZING. Meals were abundant and tasted great. I would go again just for the food.
