We recently stayed in "The Wave" room for two nights in early June and were very satisfied customers! This hostel is VERY clean and well managed with lots of little extras. For example, how many hostels have a bamboo steamer in the kitchen? None that we've stayed in! Devon (and Wilbur) were the perfect hosts and gave us the gouge on where to find a quiet beach (Buck's) or a good place to eat in Tahoe City (Tahoe House Bakery). At the risk of being redundant, we won't repeat everything that the other five-star reviewers had to say, other than it's all true! Like the others, we are a little reluctant to share this rare find, lest there be no vacancy next time we want to stay. However, since we wish these folks nothing but success in their venture, we feel obligated to spread the word. You will not be disappointed in a stay at Hostel Tahoe.
