I was visiting the area from Utah on my way back to Oregon. There is a bus that connects from the Amtrak station in Truckee and will take you to Kings Beach and drop you off a hundred yards from the Hostel. That is super convenient and the staff were very accommodating with my arrival. The bus fares are super...

The staff are extremely nice and run a professional operation. We had a few minor issues, but they were fully addressed by the management. As other reviewers have mentioned, there is some road noise, but not a deal-breaker. The common room is very welcoming. Good basic accommodations with conscientious owners.

Incredibly clean, friendly place. The staff was ready for us, checked us in, gave us the lowdown on the property.

My friends and I booked a private room, and we all agreed...

I went with my other 4 friends and we had such an awesome time there. Really close to everything as beach, grocery and bars. The employees are friendly and nice. The place is clean and really familiar. We loved. We are sure we're gonna come back.

I was so delighted to find this place at the last minute. It's really special and I wish I'd stayed longer. I arrived to other guests around the BBQ and I bought some meat and joined. So friendly, kitchen and living areas are incredibly well organised. Highly recommended.

Great location in Kings beach close to everything. Clean, nice kitchen and patio. Not the lap of luxury but I come up to bike and ski, not to party. If you want to waited on hand over foot go to a resort, it's a hostel right?

This is an immaculate hostel. It's so clean. It's one of the nicest places I've stayed. I would definitely recommend it. It's walking distance to the lake. The beds are comfortable. The road is a little noisy but overall it's a great place.
