    Nice, kind and organized. Beds are a little stiff, but it’s a hostel! So I wasn’t expecting much! Good kitchen! Good bathroom! Safe vibes! Nice place to park cars!

    The staff is awesome! Very polite and helpful, the price is really good because is one way for backpackers with a limited budget can visit Yosemite. But I think they overstate extra charges that could be courtesy to guests, like $ 5 to use a towel? $ 10 for laundry's? not accept card payment. Don’t have lockers do keep the backpacker security.

    Served my needs well as a place to sleep for 1 night while visiting Yosemite. I was able to book rather last minute, and when I arrived the employees were expecting me and showed me the facility and my room. I had read that they charge a fee for towels and there were no lockers, so I was prepared for this. Make sure you bring cash to pay when you arrive. I felt the price was fair. Showers were warm for me, although located outside. No AC. Check out was extremely easy. Overall, I was happy.

    Choose this only if you have nowhere else to go. People keep walking now and then. If you are not tired enough/Drunk, sleeping is a bit of a problem. (especially with the huge fan hissing all night long)

    Was about a 30 minute drive to the entrance of the park and another 30 to the Village . The town was cute and had great food the coffee shop was great and also the bar down the street located under the hotel . The hostel it self had what you needed . I’ve stayed in many others and wouldn’t rate it my favorite but you get what you pay for . No issues with staff or other people staying. Kitchen was small and eating area was outside . Only one rest room inside. Okay not impressed

    Cheap place to stay while visiting Yosemite. You stay there to go to Yosemite, there isen’t much else in the town. People tend to go to bed early and get up early - which is recommended if you are visiting the park. No cell service, there is WiFi but it cuts out regularly. This place is a bit more rustic than other US hostels I have stayed in, although it sure beats camping. Kitchen is also rather small.

    This could have been a good hostel option relatively close to the Yosemite valley (~1 hours 10 min driving in the rush hour) but the absolutely horrible mattresses are killing it all! The mattress is more like a 3” mattress topper atop of a sheet of plywood on each bunk so you’re laying almost directly on the wooden board. If you’re a side-sleeper like me, awful sleep is guaranteed! I have never seen so abysmal bedding setup in any other hostel I stayed and I traveled around in hostels a lot!

    If you can stay somewhere else I'd recommend it. While the toilet and sink were clean, things like the windowsills, walls and shower were dirty (the grouting in the shower is mostly mould at this point and needs to be replaced). There's multiple showers and toilets but only one sink, which makes washing hands, brushing teeth etc hard to do. The mattresses and walls are competing for who can be the thinnest, and the bedroom got very hot both nights.

    We had a private room in a separate house. The room did not meet our standards with regards to cleanliness. Also, the A/C in the room is so loud, that you definitely have to sleep with earplugs and then you still hear the portable AC. The entire was filthy. Looking at the corners and stairs, there was a lot of dirt and filth. I would recommend booking something more expensive for more comfort and cleanliness. The room door had a paper curtain which looked very old.

    Filthy and stank of a VERY acrid bleach product, making it very difficult to get to sleep. The only staff member on duty spoke very limited English.
