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

We really liked this hostel. We stayed in a dorm room, a little big with 12 beds and people often getting up very early but it was fine. The hostel is about 45min drive from the main park entrance but it's a nice drive along the river to get there. The kitchen is good and it was fun to cook... More

Loved this place! It's such a great deal for the price. We stayed in the tent cabins - they're unheated, but not flimsy, and we never had a problem with the summer weather. Plus, it cost less than $60 per night. The staff was really friendly, and we met a variety of locals and international travelers there. If you do... More

Recommended these lodgings by a friends daughter who had stayed previously. We opted for the barn studio as we were a family of five. The lodgings were very rustic and a bit tired although did the job. Beds were good and clean and made every day although there was not a sofa bed that we were expecting - had to... 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
