Yosemite Bug mixes well vintage hotel-style cabin rooms with private baths and traditional hostel rooms/environment. The photos of the rooms on the website are exactly as they look in person; well cared for. We spent a lot of time in the cafe/lounge playing games and eating their terrific food. The menu is limited, changing only every three days; however, the preparation and presentation was a wonderful surprise. Fresh, creative and hearty portions. If you are looking for candlelight dinners with tablecloths, this place ain't for you. With large tables and benches/chairs, you might wind up sharing a table; but that's the charm of the place. Two large sitting areas with comfy couches make this the perfect hang out spot. We also tried the steel tub spa and dry heat suana. A nice setting, likely different than what you are spa-used-to. Beds were extremely comfy, only wish the comfy comforter came with a top sheet. On the downside, our room had no dresser and a winky dink cubby for a "closet." There was a nice couch we would have liked to lounge on, but it quickly became our dresser, clothes spread out on it. A vintage dressing table was nice to look at, but we would have preferred a small table we could have set up a computer or board game on. Also, shelf space in the bathroom was
non-existent. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Clientele is a mix of foreign and USA hostel travelers, California locals and outdoor lovers. There is also a community kitchen, fully stocked with cooking implements, open for all to use. Setting is lovely and for the most part guests were respectful of the 10 pm quiet time. We went for our shared birthdays with our college age son. I would like to make it a family tradition. Yosemite Valley only about 30 mins away.

- 26 miles downstream from Yosemite Valley , we are located on a small valley under a grove of oaks in a former scouts camp. We are best known for our authentic old-style mountain resort character and social atmosphere. We have everyone from backpackers to young families who enjoy this place. The June Bug Cafe focuses on sustainable, local and fresh, in a daily changing menu with excellent vegan and vegetarian options as well as standard meats and seafood.
