A dorm room consists of six to twelve bunk beds in either single-sex or coed dorms. You will have access to the hostel kitchen. All beds have good quality fresh linens on real mattresses and pillows. Fresh top linens and blankets are included. Sleeping bags and sleep sheets are acceptable. Each cabin has modern commercial showers, sinks and toilets. In-room phones and TV are not available in this class of accommodation. Support Mass Transit and take YARTS (est. $12 cash round-trip per day, not included in price) from and to the Park and then use the FREE Hybrid Shuttles to get around and see the sights! (There is a short walk from the bus stop to the Hostel, and you should have a flashlight for the evenings.)


Tour includes San Francisco Hotel pick-up (tour vehicle has limited space for luggage, so try to keep it small!), transportation to Yosemite National Park, Yosemite Valley Tour and drop off at Yosemite Lodge, where you gain your independence, for 96 hours. The Five Day Yosemite National Park tour gives you 3 full uninterrupted days you don’t get with the 1- or 2-day tour. Do some all-day hiking to the top of Yosemite Falls, or if you are really in shape (and get an early start), to the top of Half Dome, or only part way, to the top of Nevada Falls or Vernal Falls - things that are hard to fit into 2 half-days or less. You could also slow it down and go rafting down the Merced River, or ride around on an open tram tour of Yosemite Valley (fare extra and seasonal). You can just take it easy and walk around the beautiful valley floor, or visit the Ahwahnee Hotel, and Mirror Lake is just a short uphill walk. For an all day excursion, bus it up to the Mariposa Grove and back or Glacier Point and walk all the way down (fare extra and seasonal). On the fifth day, meet another tour group, and finish the day with them and return to San Francisco.

In winter, it is still a great time to visit. Some locations are inaccessible, but the scenery is completely different – the Valley itself is a winter waterfall wonderland. For someone willing to bundle up and wear the right shoes, and get some exercise, you will greatly rewarded, and there are times when you might feel you have the place to yourself.
