Our Yosemite Health Spa offers hot tub, hot rocks sauna, yoga studio and massage therapies. We also have group accommodations and facilities with packages.

Our desk staff and website are well versed about activities and hikes in Yosemite National Park, the Sequoia Tree 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, ping pong, foosball and other games.

    I would highly recommend this hostel. We stayed two nights as we were visiting Yosemite. It is clean, got AC/fans as it can get pretty hot in the summer. The food is actually really good and you are able to even track to the natural swimming pools that are right next to the hostel. Beds are rather comfortable compared to other hostels’

    Great service and excellent place. Every body super friendly and the staff willing to help at all times. Only downside is the distance from Yosemite when traveling by bus or shuttle. Last shuttle leaves Yosemite quite early for those long strenuous hikes and it’s hard to get to the hostel if you miss the last ride.

    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!

    Something different -nice rustic atmosphere with several things to do - ping pong, hot tub, massages, hiking trail. June Bug Cafe has excellent food! Be prepared to walk alot of stairs to get to your room and back and forth to the cafe or main office! We stayed in a family dorm - it was ok, beds creaked every time you moved in bed. Bathroms were clean.

    Very Good

    This is a couple of dorm rooms latched on to a giant family based lodging facility. So atmosphere is kids kids kids. There's no town nearby to escape (walking distance) and the restau is pretty average. Alright overall, car parking can be a challenge. But yeah, barely a backpackers so don't expect a lot of fun. Just a place to crash and tidy up after Yosemite, which is fine.
