I slept in both the heated tent and the dorm which were both in great condition. I especially loved the restaurant, with a very warm and welcoming vibe. I would recomment this place to any traveler With the public yards bus it takes almost 1,5 hours to get there from yosemite valley, but the drive is stunning

we stayed in one of the private rooms and were amazed by how good it was. The room was 100USD inc all taxes which was the cheapest room we have stayed at in America by far and incidentally the best. The mattress was memory foam and we slept blissfully. The actual room was large, beautifully and slightly eccentrically furnished and... More

I have to start with the beds. They were the best ones I've slept in a while! Memory foam mattres is really what you want after a long day of hiking. Food in the restaurant is reasonable priced and really good! The portion sizes are hearty and definitely will fill you up. Only "bad" thing is that alcoholic drinks are... More

This review may be more useful for backpackers and people on a budget. My boyfriend and I only stayed here for 2 nights whilst backpacking the states. We stayed in a private tent with shared bathroom. Our tent overlooked the mountainous views surrounding this resort - it was incredibly peaceful and beautiful. The inside of the tent was clean and...

Stayed here one night. If you drive up to the top of the driveway after lodging its a great place to view the night sky. Pipes after showering were a little noisy. Accommodations were great. The restaurant for breakfast was reasonably priced with GREAT food and wonderful boxed lunches to take with us into Yosemite! I highly recommend the boxed... More

If you love the outdoors, and you should if you're off to Yosemite, you'll love this place. Much written about the cafe which we used for breakfast, the packed lunch (sandwich filling packed separately to avoid soggy sandwich syndrome) and dinner. Great menu changed daily. Reasonable value too. Good options for us vegetarians. We had a private cabin with veranda... More

There's not much to choose from if you want to spend less than $100 per head in the Yosemite area, so despite its rough edges, Yosemite Bug is quite endearing and I'd happily return again. Great firepit. Decent restaurant/bar/sitting room with fireplace and a nice vibe. Dorm rooms are basic. A bit worn. Mattresses VERY soft. 12 beds in each... More

It is a well provisioned, comfortable hostel. The bedroom and bathroom were very clean and comfortable. However, the bedroom smelled badly of stale food which was off putting but we got used to it. Unfortunately our clothes retained this smell afterwards. There is a cafe which provides a number of options for breakfast and dinner including vegetarian options. Prices are... More

We stayed in one of the heated cabins for two nights. We got the impression from the photos that our cabin was one that had not been refurbished while the ones surrounding it had, it just had an older look and one side of it felt a bit like it may fall down the edge of the hill!! The bed... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tucked away on its own bend along the stream, perched under a grove of black oaks, the Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort has a magical feel. Located only 26 miles away from Yosemite Valley along California's scenic, open all year Highway 140. The Bug offers a relaxed and social atmosphere where families, backpackers and international travelers all find welcome and a variety of affordable accomodations and amenities an old time mountain resort would have. At the Bug we feature a variety of lodgings to suit any budget. From well appointed private rooms in cabins, vacation rentals, to tent cabins and Hostelling International licensed hostel dorms. Our guests find our facilities to be anything but a corporate hotel or motel setting. In fact, we are on a sloped hillside so be prepared to walk far up and down to your accommodations and parking. Our guests are welcome at the June Bug Cafe offering fresh comfort and international foods. The Cafe features an daily crafted dinner menu, highlighting our garden, local or organic ingredients. There are always vegan, vegetarian options and holiday feast menus. Breakfast & lunch are solid choices for your active day. Or, enjoy the fully equipped guest kitchen. Both have free wi-fi and are well stocked with board games, darts, ping pong, books and lively conversation with diverse guests and locals. The Yosemite Health Spa is located below the cafe with its own garden deck overlooking the valley below. There, our guests will find a yoga studio, massage therapy, essential oil baths, hot rocks sauna and a huge H2O2 UV spring fed stainless steel hot tub. With asian decor, world music and complimentary tea, the spa offers a calm yet social environment. Groups, weddings and courses will find varied accomodations and $50+ inclusive packages here at the Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort. Both the Bodie Room and the fireside redwood amphitheater are the perfect places to host gatherings and meetings ... more   less
