    • It is not really a classic hostel. It is more like a room in a motel, but without a bathroom. You need to share the showers and toilets with the camping people.

    • We are a mature aged couple. Stayed in an onsuite unit with nice balcony and view of Kings Canyon. Pleasant swimming pool and friendly staff. Very enjoyable resort atmosphere and walks at King's Canyon great.

    • 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 !
