    The hostel was in a great location - Groveland is a very lovely town! The room was spacious and very clean. The only slight downside is that I expected to meet more travelers here. Also, make sure to visit the saloon if you ever stay here!

    We had the best stay. We stayed in the White House, which was full with the best people. Ki (the owner) and the other staff even came and hung out with us for a bit one night. Everything was clean and well secured! Great place to stay for Yosemite!

    Nothing but good things to say. We stayed in an 8-bed dorm room and everything was very clean. Staff me member comes into the hostel a couple of times a day to see if anything needs replacing or cleaning. Great value for your money. It’s about an hour 20 minutes to the Nevada Falls parking lot

    Very good hostel for people trying to explore Yosemite! Excellent price and location, clean and easy to find! Also had the chance to talk to other guests who were also exploring the area and got valuable tips for the park! Highly recommend it!

    Waited at the reception when I arrived for at least 10 min because of a power outage. There was nobody there to greet me. The guy at the reception seemed disorganized. My face cloth was thrown in a cupboard. I guess the staff thought it belonged to the hostel. I had to call the reception to locate it. Loved my private room, kitchen, location. Overall, it was a great experience.

    Overall had a great stay- we booked a private room and the facilities were nice. Comfy bed. Good place to stay for visiting the park without access to a car as the YART bus stop was very close by

    A good stay. The shared bathroom is a bit gross, but overall, it was a great place to stay and commute to Yosemite in the mornings. There is a local bar very close too, which was fun. Definitely worth the price.

    Bit of a weird vibe, it looks like nothing has been done to it since the 60’s, it’s quite run down and dirty. The guy who checked us in was super friendly and helpful. It’s a good place to stay if you want to explore Yosemite National park as it takes less than an hour to drive there and the parking is free at the hostel.

    There was someone from outside the hostel who was able to get into one of the cabins and almost hurt one of the people staying at hostel. Security needs to be looked into more here. Location was good though as you're an hour from Yosemite Valley.
