Tide pools, redwoods, elephant seals, grey whales, hiking, biking, and the famous cliff-side hot tub await you at HI-Pigeon Point Lighthouse. Yes -- the hostel is at a working, 115-foot-tall lighthouse. (And it's among the top ten customer-rated HI hostels in the world.)

Fall asleep in former lighthouse keeper's quarters to the sound of waves crashing below, wander the cliff's-edge boardwalk and watch for native marine life, and explore neighboring Pescadero Marsh, Ano Nuevo State Reserve, Big Basin Redwoods State Park, or a string of state beaches.

If you ever tire of the hostel's beach-cottage atmosphere and all the outdoor fun nearby, take a break in the small town of Pescadero or head 30 miles south for a day in Santa Cruz.

Hostel amenities include free WiFi, free linens, Tempur-Pedic mattresses, towels for rent, bag and bike storage, three fully equipped guest kitchens, beach access, a fire pit and outdoor patio, and a hot tub overlooking the ocean ($7 per person per half hour for 2-4 people).

The hostel is also a Certified Bay Area Green Business. Our green practices include composting, recycling, reducing water and energy usage through efficient appliances, lighting, and faucets, and using environmentally friendly cleaning products.

  • Perfect place to catch the sunset! Views in all directions! The gift shop was open. Worth a stop- especially in good weather

  • A short drive from the Bay Area, specifically from the Half Moon Bay location, it's a refreshing getaway from the hustle and bustle of a city life. Fresh ocean breeze with less crowd. Nice road trip.....  more
