Nicest hostel I've ever stayed in. The place is meticulously clean. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for hiking, lake activities, or snow fun in the winter. The rooms are spacious with everything a traveler could need as well as an en suite bathroom for each room. This place is perfect.

After travelling almost a day from Australia to SFO then a stunning 4 hour drive it was a welcoming place to stay - nice rooms, well-run and very social atmosphere. Also close to main shops and bars of Sth Tahoe. Was especially grateful that they found a room for me on a busy Memorial Day weekend.

I stayed here for 4 nights and absolutely loved it. The hostel itself is in a great location, about 5 minutes from the lake and 5 minutes from the ski lifts. Everyone at the hostel was incredibly welcoming, the common room is really popular and I was never left alone or without something to do. The rooms were all very...

You really get value for money with Mellow Mountain. Having paid relatively little for our own room, we also had extensive cooking and communal facilities and a computer room. The people at reception were really welcoming, our room was clean and the owner sorted out some late arriving friends coming into our room without any hassle. Having a hassle free...

Clean and chill hostel. Kitchen is super nice and the hostel within walking distance to pretty much everything you would need. Staff were very friendly and answered any questions we had about the best places to eat or where to find a shop for something. Beds were comfy but if you're a side sleeper like me bring an extra pillow...

I've stayed at Mellow Mountain a couple times and it was spot on. Wolfie and Elias take great pride in creating a chilled out hostel that still ticks all the boxes of being clean, well maintained, and professional. Anna and the other staff I met are cheerful, friendly, and always willing to help out. My girlfriend and I had a...

Spent 6 days here whilst exploring the various ski resorts in the vicinity. The group are very welcoming, big rooms with comfy beds and good sized bathrooms. Common areas also big and nice - always someone around to chat to. Well placed for casinos and some of the Tahoe nightlife. Only downside is the height of the shower head -...
