“Minutes from Northstar and the beach, this former motel has private rooms and single-sex dorms with hand-painted murals and gauzy hanging textiles. A separate common building is the pièce de résistance , sunlight bathes the fireplace living room and a well-equipped honor kitchen stocks coffee, tea and food staples. Free loaner bikes, and breakfast included on Saturday and Sunday.”

“Borrowing or renting a cabin is the classic Tahoe stay, but if you don’t want to “go big,” consider Hostel Tahoe in Kings Beach near the lake’s northern shore, a real treat for cost-conscious travelers.

Homey and welcoming as all get out, Hostel Tahoe is a reborn motel that offers appealing private rooms as well as dorm-style bunkrooms. The shared living area features a fireplace—that Tahoe essential—plus free wifi, movies, books, board games, even a guitar to play. There’s a well-stocked kitchen too, plus free weekend breakfast featuring homemade granola and baked goods.”

“Far more stunning than I had anticipated, I’m thrilled I decided to hire a car and drive up from San Francisco. If you get the opportunity, spend a few days in the pretty Hostel Tahoe enjoying North Shore” The Wanderlust Days

“We managed to sneak in a short ride to the beach in the morning on a pair of cruisers we borrowed from the hostel…..We headed back to the hostel to warm up and mingle with the rest of the SVTC crew.” Malnourished Triathlete

“This is the only hostel on the North Shore and they have discounts on lift tickets, transportation from the Reno-Tahoe Airport, free Wi-Fi, and free bike use and luggage storage. The best place to stay on the cheap.” Kayla Anderson’s website

“The budget friendly Hostel Tahoe is your best bet. Thrity-five dollars per night will buy you snacking privileges in the communal kitchen and a apot in a single-sex dorm room.” The Bold Italic: Your ultimate guide to snowboarding (where there’s snow)
