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

We stayed in a cabin on stilts at the top of a steep hill. Our room was clean and comfortable, the bed slept great. We did not like the fact we had to hike straight up almost 5 separate flights of stairs to get to our room, dragging our nice luggage on dirt paths, behind other buildings, etc. The place... More

We've just returned from staying at the Bug for a second time. This time we stayed in an air conditioned room but saved money by using the kitchen more. It was the perfect place to stay. The beds were comfortable, the cafe has delicious local beer on tap (and tasty food) and the double hammock is a great place to... More

My friends and I planned a 14 day long adventure around California and we spent 4 days at The Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort. We LOVED it - Our rooms were clean (a few bugs/spiders, but whatever) We had a room with a shared bath and we never even saw the other couple that we shared the bathroom with.. It... More

We enjoyed our stay at the "Bug" in mid-June. We stayed in a room with a private bath, which was perfect. Our college aged daughter slept in the twin bed, leaving the queen for my husband and myself. All was clean and well kept. The décor was interesting, to say the least. Not offensive, but different. We were right above... More

We stayed pre kids at the Bug back in 2004. Back then it was the middle of winter and we had fond memories of the roaring log fire and hearty food. Fast forward 10 years, 2 kids later, and staying in the middle of summer…..there was no roaring log fire but the food was still hearty and the place was... More

We arrived late evening and was checked in really quickly. The guy at the desk gave us some great information about yosemite, which was really helpful. We stayed in an uninsulated tent cabin, which was on the small side but we didn't spend much time in there anyway. I didn't really feel like our stuff was that safe in the... More

The resort itself is fantastic, and had it not been for the number of bites I woke up with on both mornings I would be rating this higher. Sadly the evidence all pointed to bed bugs as my friends who I travelled with had similar bites. That aside (and perhaps we were just unlucky?!) the site is lovely, with a... More

We went here for 2 nights in a private insulated tent cabin. It was ok, nothing fancy but cool for 2 nights. Don't forget the name of the place is RUSTIC Yosemite bug hostel.... It certainly is rustic, but perfect when you want to have a taste of camping in Yosemite but no time or no camping material to do... More

First time to Yosemite and loved this place. Never been to a hostel and with "bug" in the name was a bit nervous. But after one night, we were happy we got this place. Stayed 4 nights in an insulated plywood cabin, which had 1 full, 2 twin beds and a small desk. it was stuffy when we checked in,... 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
