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.

I've stayed at tons of hostels and this one is one of my favorites! Excellent vibes, great atmosphere, it's clean and the location could not be any better. The guys who own/run it have done an amazing job! :) I'll definitely be back and would recommend it to anyone lookin for a place to stay in South Lake Tahoe!

Our stay here was fantastic. Wolfie the owner was incredibly friendly, helpful and as per the title, very enthusiastic. The rooms are spacious, clean and warm (good for ski season). The bunks are comfortable and all the bed clothes are new and clean. A nice common room and kitchen area complete with table football. Good location in South Lake Tahoe... More
