The Hostel at Tinker’s Station is located on Donner Pass Road just off Interstate 80 in Soda Springs, California. The Station is in close proximity to some of Tahoe’s best ski and snowboard resorts, rock climbing sites, hiking trails, bike paths, kayaking lakes and other outdoor activity locales.
Tinker’s Station is named after one of the founding members of the town of Soda Springs, Joseph Tinker. Along with Thomas Fenton, the two men founded the hotel Tinker’s Station in 1864. While the site has since moved from its original location, the current property has maintained the name Tinker’s Station since the mid 19th century. Our hostel strives to carry on the longstanding tradition of historical pride, excellence in service and outstanding hospitality.
