This place was a great find. I was there off season and it was $19 for a room and I was the only one there. It definitely has the feel of a "mellow" house. The guys that own it let me borrow a bike to get around and a spot in the garage to lock up my kayaks. Very chill... More

Such a great place! The owners were extremely friendly and laid back. The hostel is close to a bunch of shops restaurants and the casinos. We were offered free beer by the owners. Nice common room where the guests were friendly and welcoming. Would definitely come back again.

This hostel is super nice! The dorms are cozy with comfortable beds and clean bathrooms. The kitchen is tidy with all cooking utensils provided. Wolfie and Elias, the owners, are very friendly guys and we even meet up on the mountain one day to go snowboarding together. The location is perfect, close to the gondola and the beach. I had...

We stayed in Lake Tahoe for 2 nights. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and spacious. There was a heating which we could turn on and of how we'd like to. The only disadvantage with the heating was that the air on top of the room was hot and at the bottom it was... More

This hostel is an absolute gem. everyone there made you feel so at welcome and you felt like you were staying at a friends house. Location is great for Heavenly lift and giant supermarket, and plenty of restaurants/bars if you want to eat out.

To summarize my trip here - I planned to stay in South Lake for two nights and had such a great time that I ended up staying for a week! I have to warn you that it will be extremely hard to leave once you have stayed here. The hostel owners are extremely nice and are happy to share their... More

Clean, functional accomodation with local knowledge to boot! Chilled out vibe and easy on the wallet mellow mountain is in my opinion the only place you should stay in South Lake Tahoe! Great location close to town and the gondola - everything is within walking distance! All the facilities you need and a great common room - the hosts are... More

What great guys running the hostel and doing an awesome, creative job with updating the building! This place brings so much character, good energy and charm to South Lake Tahoe, which is crowded with pretty average-styled hotels and not much options outside the box. It was a pleasure meeting you Elias and Wolfie and wishing you the best year for... More
