Property Description

The Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort is 25 miles from Yosemite Valley. Located on a forested 50-acre hillside complex, the Bug is a magical, relaxed social place.

In addition to the hostel kitchen, we offer a restaurant that has a great reputation locally for value and fresh foods. We serve from steaks to vegan.

Our desk staff are well versed about activities and hikes in Yosemite Valley, the sequoia groves and the High Sierra. The Merced River Wild and Scenic Area nearby offers great summer swimming, and whitewater rafting in the spring. Our property has a 1 hour nature trail and a spring swimming hole.

Our health spa offers access to the natural spring hot tub & sauna, offered treatments including massage, and yoga classes. This beautiful facility overlooks the canyon.

Groups will find our meeting areas and packages will fit their needs.

There is a 11% lodging tax added on to the balance due. If you are a member of Hosteling International then you will be prompt to show us valid membership upon check in to receive your $3 per night discount, Memberships are available upon check in.

Payment will be taken upon check in. Due to the huge draught issue in California for this season of 2014, there is a possibility of a $1 charge per person to be added upon check in in the event that we have to ship in our own water, all though this is not confirmed at this point it is a possibility from the months of May to September.

    This is an excellent place to stay! Everything was perfect! The kitchen was great, the cafe was awesome! I especially enjoyed chilling in the cafe each night before bed. I highly recommend Yosemite Bug Rustic to anyone looking into it. Seriously a super place! Clean, organized, relaxed, good energy, nice people, a kitty cat that greets you at the cafe. The grounds are kept nice with the cabins layered on a mountain side. Very beautiful place. I will absolutely stay there again!

    Nice hostel right next to Yosemite. It is like a little village which makes it very special. The room was very spacious and the bed was comfortable. The small village looks very cute at night and the staff was very friendly. Definitely a good option to stay at in Yosemite! Many people are in the hostel so you feel very comfortable and familiar. The bathroom was very big and clean!

    Overall this place was fine. The guys on reception were a little clueless and and the print out map they gave me had the wrong times for breakfast, which was a little annoying as I woke up early to wait 30mins for the place to open. I stayed in a dorm and the room is fine, maybe a little tight. The food in the restaurant was fine. I felt the service was really slow and a little sloppy. The guy in the spa was super helpful and pleasant and I really liked those facilities.
