I was looking for an inexpensive place to stay while visiting Yosemite for a few days. Didn't want to camp, and wasn't sure how the permanent tents in Yosemite were going to be. The lodges in Yosemite are pretty expensive. The Bug was perfect for its price. Great food selections. We got a 2 bed private room, shared the bathroom with another 2 person room, though we never saw them. There are a few trails around the hostel, be sure to check out the small waterfall and swimming hole, it is really cool. The menu in the cafe is really nice, decent food - or you can cook your own food in the kitchen. The only bummer is the distance from Yosemite, bit of a drive, but we did it everyday. The Bug is out in the middle of nowhere.
