I stayed at the Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort for two nights as part of a two day tour of the Yosemite National Park offered by the Bug Bus in May 2011. I stayed in a large dorm room so I am unable to comment on any other of the accommodation they offer. The dorm beds were big and comfy and the toilets/bathrooms clean and functional. No lockers in room, although security didn't feel like an issue. The check in staff were friendly and easy going and this is the vibe I got from the whole place. The accommodation is located in a beautiful mountain area ( a fair drive from the sites of Yosemite) and is very quiet.
The restaurant / bar was comfortable and warm and the staff serving were generally friendly. I found all the food I ate there to be delicious and tasty and perfect for the start of a days activities, or to end a hard days trekking. The kitchen also looked after our packed lunch on our hikes which was equally good.There is a spa/sauna which some of my fellow tour guests partook in and reported that it was very relaxing.
The two days of touring was also very fun. Yosemite is an amazing place. We visited all the major attractions and did not feel rushed or bored throughout. Hostel pick up and drop off was included in the price which was very convenient. Dave our tour guide was very experienced and brilliant. He entertained informed, and kept us safe throughout. He pointed out many things I otherwise would have missed and I guess these things are all you desire or need from a tour guide.
If you have limited time and you want to see all the great things Yosemite has to offer take the Yosemite Bug Bus and and stay at the Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort.
