We enjoyed Cabin in nature, the staff and guests, nice internatnl atmosphere. Shared shower was unusable, gave either freezing or boiling water. Public showers were ok. Food was fair, need a fixed salaried chef. Location is a long hard drive from Yosemite. Recommend the bus. However its about 15 min walk to hostel from road and was hard for elderly. Suggest either move bus station inside hostel or provide a free shuttle in every half hour.

Very nice hostel in a great location very close to the park. I really liked the restaurant with its healthy and alternative menu and its wonderful atmosphere. This hostel is a great alternative to those very expensive hotels inside Yosemite.

Liked location, cafe, cleanliness of dorms, availability of bus access, the many international visitors enjoying Yosemite. Receptionist gave good directions, since GPS not reliable. Recommend kitchen rules and cleaning equipment for kitchen area, also instruction on separating trash from recyclables. Recommend more brightly lit reading area. Other than cafe, I did not find a reading location. Dining room lighting is very dim. Very grateful for this hostel!
