I booked a cabin room (shared bathroom) for 2 nights on a US road trip. I wanted to keep things cheap, but must admit to avoiding the tent cabins due to reviews and not being too much much of a lover of camping! The room was clean and comfortable. Yes, it is basic, but they don't claim otherwise! We made... More

We decided on a very last minute trip to Yosemite and needed a place to stay for one night. There were four adults and the only place available was the Starlight Barn Studio. It has one double bed and a bunk bed which wasn't ideal but it was only a short stay and all we could find at such short... More

We returned here after 15 years of fond memories. Not much had changed other than it has expanded. It is a little too rustic for my tastes. The room was clean and comfortable. Parking was difficult if you get there late. Food was good but expensive. It was a longer than drive to yosemite valley than I remember. If we... More

Stayed in one of their canvas tents. Brought own sleeping bags which was lucky as it was cold, but this was to be expected really. Good price for the location which is beautiful and not many other options available. Bus to the national park stops just 2 minutes away. There was a small town nearby but as we were without... More

We loved our time at this unique hostel-resort. We stayed in the Hetch-Hetchy building on the hill in a private room with its own bathroom. We were happy to know the A/C worked well, as it was 100+ degrees outside, and nighttime didn't cool down drastically. I really appreciated that they have reminders about being kind to the environment by... More

Had a brilliant stay in the insulated tent here. Fab for a budget traveller and the spa is a real bonus at the end of a long day exploring Yosemite ($10 and you get access to Sauna, hot tub, herbal teas and nice showers). Restaurant was fab for vegetarians and the games were a great draw. Ideal location for Yosemite... More

I stayed in a private room with en-suite for two nights last week. The rooms were spacious and clean. I thought the place had a very friendly atmosphere and the community areas were always clean and tidy. Food was tasty and very good value! Especially their options for a take-away packed lunch. Also the spa beneath the dining room was... More

Thanks to TripAdvisor review. We "upgraded" our room from a tent cabin to a private room with shared bath before arrival (two private rooms shared one bathroom). The room and bed linens were clean. The full-size bed was high and a bit small for two people. Bathroom appeared to be recently updated. Water pressure could be an issue since our... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in one of the Bug's "tent cabins," as we wanted to save money and knew we wouldn't be spending a whole lot of time inside. Our cabin consisted of a full size bed, one nightstand, a fan, and a light, which was all we really needed. Our sheets and bedding were clean upon arrival and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Yosemite Bug is a rustic mountain resort 25 miles from Yosemite Valley. Located on a forested 20-acre hillside complex, the Bug is relaxed and sociable but well run. In addition to the hostel kitchen, the lodge sports a restaurant that has a great reputation locally for value. Our desk staff are well versed about activities and hikes in Yosemite Valley, Sequoia Groves and Tuolumne Meadows. The Merced Wild and Scenic Area is 3 miles away and features white-water in spring and great summer swimming. Near the hostel itself is a large spring swimming hole and Mariposa Gold Town, 10 miles back. ... more   less
