Great location in Kings beach close to everything. Clean, nice kitchen and patio. Not the lap of luxury but I come up to bike and ski, not to party. If you want to waited on hand over foot go to a resort, it's a hostel right?

Here's what Hostel Tahoe is not; a scenic hotel offering maid service and breakfast. Here's what it is: an immaculate self-service type of facility with a wonderful location, helpful staff and a perfect location for people who want to visit the Lake Tahoe area, are traveling on a budget and appreciate wonderful cooking facilities and nice common spaces to hang...

This is an immaculate hostel. It's so clean. It's one of the nicest places I've stayed. I would definitely recommend it. It's walking distance to the lake. The beds are comfortable. The road is a little noisy but overall it's a great place.

Only had time for a stopover but this place was very relaxed and has a lovely communal area with all mod cons guitars iPads and a good kitchen Rooms were fine. 4 bed dorm with ensuing. The beds were a bit wobbly though! Easy to find on the road that circles the lake. Good budget accommodation in Tahoe

This is the most comfortable and clean hostel that I have visited. (And, I've stayed at several U.S. and non-U.S. hostels.) I stayed in the women's dorm and lucked out; no one else was in my room. The bed was comfortable, the dorm was very clean (down to the linens--sometimes hostel linens are kinda gross), and the bathroom and dressing... More

Our family spent Christmas break at the hostel. The staff was vary friendly and helpful. The room comfortably fit our adult family and all of our ski gear. The main building was a perfect place to relax, cook and eat. The kitchen was well equipped and very clean. We have nothing but good things to say about the hostel! I... More

I can't say enough about Hostel Tahoe. This place rocks! Everyone is great; Grace and Dawn make you feel so welcome and give great tips! All the people I have met here have been so interesting and fun to be around. The community here is wonderful. But if you don't feel like being social, no problem! All the rooms are... More

I stayed by myself during January 2015 for almost a week. Rooms are quite simple, clean, with good heating. I just loved the common room, is the perfect place to chill after hitting the slopes! Grace and Dawn were awesome hosts: very kind, and the perfect "Tahoe advisors". During the weekend there was a delicius free breakfast with homemade cupcakes... More

The only hostel in Tahoe, this place is in a great location, and is clean, warm, welcoming, and affordable. The common area and kitchen are very welcoming, and create a nice communal hangout area. Our room had a very comfortable, cozy queen sized bed, with a twin bunk above. The room was pretty big, and with the extra bed it... More

If you are looking for an affordable, comfortable place to stay on the north shore of Lake Tahoe, Hostel Tahoe is a great option. The hostel combines the best aspects of a hotel (quiet, private rooms) with the friendly atmosphere and affordability of a hostel. The rooms are clean and comfy, and there is a big community living room and... More
