YHA recommends this property in a unique location. Although it is not part of, and not affiliated with the YHA hostel network, we have been able to negotiate exclusive YHA Member discounts for you.
It's not really a YHA and you can feel it as soon as you get there. Giant spiderwebs in the room and overpriced. However it's the only accomodation near Kings Canyon, which explains that it's overpriced IMO. Kings Canyon itself is unforgettable !
