Here is some additional information about Jackass Hostel to make your stay great.

Jackass Hostel is a clean, rustic, and quirky lodging accommodation for adults 18 and up.

Please note, Jackass Hostel is in a historic house. It's old. This creates the rustic cabin experience we offer. Our floorboards may creak sometimes, but the vibe is warm and welcoming. If you are looking for a partially rustic experience with some new amenities, Jackass Hostel is for you. If you are looking for something fancy, we probably are not the best fit.

There are no private bathrooms.
We do not have AC in the rooms. We have a swamp cooler in the social area.

Check in is from 4 pm to 9 pm. If you are not able to check in during this time, please reach out in advance so we can make arrangements.
Check out is at 10:00am.

Please park on the street. We share a narrow driveway with our awesome neighbors. Please help us keep the driveway clear by parking on the street above the hostel. (The red cabin).

Please clean up after yourself. Please wash and replace all dishes in their homes.
Name and date items you put in the fridge.

Quiet hours are between 10 pm and 6 am.

Complimentary earplugs are provided if needed. If you have your own, we suggest you pack them. Though quiet time begins at 10 pm, this is an OLD house, boards can be creaky and we can not guarantee other guests won’t snore.

We are located 27 miles (43km) from the southern entrance of Yosemite National Park, 11 miles from Bass Lake, and a short walk to the sleepy town of North Fork where you will find food, coffee, and grocery stores. For more information on this visit the FAQs page on our website.

Please reach out with any questions.
Your hosts,

Kim & Heather

Loved it, very creative & entertaining in their decor. Place was very nice. Wish it was closer to the park, it’s about 2hrs to yosemite valley. Wanted to stay longer, the people staying there were pretty cool.
