    Good hostel, the only place that seems to have availability outside of the park. It's about a 45 minute drive to the park entrance. Happy with the security, there is a key into the dorm and a separate key to the room. No lockers but didnt have any issues at all. Good kitchen facilities and nice bathroom. Staff were friendly an did twice daily checks of the room.

    The hostel rooms are divided into to different houses. If you’re in the yellow house you have to go outside before getting to the toilet or showers. If you’re in the brown house you potentially share one bathroom ca 18 beds. Other than that the hostel is in a really good location, only 30mins from he Yosemite Park entrance and it is really easy to get there by car. The atmosphere of the hostel is great and the people visiting are as well.

    Old buildings which could do with a spruce up. Signs in toilets said you couldn't put toilet paper in toilets indicating sewerage system wasn't up to standard. Friendly staff, good bed and location.

    Good location for daily travel to Yosemite, yet there are some huge flaws with this hostel. There is no space to lock up any valuables. In the red building, the bed:people ratio is 17:1 which was a bit excessively high. The other washrooms available were kind of dirty/gross so you kind of got stuck with over crowding. The wifi also didn't really work, despite telling the staff this they didn't really seem to want to try and fix the issue. Be aware of these issues and you'll enjoy your stay!

    Overall pretty decent. I’d stay here again if I had to. I mean it always beat paying too much for a hotel, but it’s clear the owners have not updated this place in a long time. Realistically you’re dirty and tired from hiking in Yosemite all day but this place could use an update and be a bit more comfortable. Also, no safes or anywhere to lock valuables.

    Sadly I the place was pretty basic for what I paid. Rubbish under bed from previous guests and generally not very clean. Curtains were thin meaning you woke early and walls were like paper so could hear everything from other rooms and hallway. People got up at 4am when i was there which woke me as a result. Beds were comfy. Kitchen to service 17 people was tiny - insufficient room to cook a basic meal. I have stayed in a lot nicer hostels for half the price. 1.5hr drive to Yosemite Valley.

    Enormous disappointment. Hostel World required a cash payent. My family of 4 needed to come up with almost $400 cash for a 2 night stay. The carpet was dirty, staff was never around and were apologetic but not helpful. Kitchen facilities were bare-bones. NO common space to visit with fellow travelers. Inadequate bathroom space. This place would be a good deal at a third the price. At current rates it is a rip-off. Stay at Yosemite Bug instead if they have room or get a hotel.
