Reviewed 16 April 2009

I agree with the comments of Warwick290, particularly with regard to having to leave early: however, there was an upside to both early-morning starts. On the Sunday ("we go to Church so must ask you to be out by 8 a.m."), I caught an earlier bus than planned for my trip to Yosemite; the following day I was dropped off at Hertz for my rental car before they opened: I didn't get the car I'd ordered - probably wasn't ready - but the upgrade was MOST acceptable. Mine host and his wife were pleasant enough, though. Had to wait at Amtrak for ages on arrival for a lift to the hostel.

We stopped here for one night on our way to Yosemite. It's a pretty wierd set up, I have to say. It's in a suburb in a retired couples' house. Just one small dorm for men and one for women. It was comfortable enough but there is nothing to do in Merced. The owners grudgingly gave us a talk about Yosemite at 9pm, actually saying that they had to offer some kind of activity and this was it. We were basically shown the door at 7am the next day - they will drive you to the bus station if you don't have a car, you don't have a choice - you have to leave! However there is no reason for hanging around. You aren't allowed to have showers in the morning and you have to shower before 10.30 at night. All in all, a bit regimental but it was all we could find and was only $18 a night.
