Property Information:

Perched on a cliff overlooking the rocky Pacific coast, the Point Montara lighthouse was once one of the most important signals for navigators approaching San Francisco’s harbor. Today, it’s still a beacon for travelers: the lighthouse grounds are home to one of the highest-customer-rated HI hostels in the world. Come to HI-Point Montara Lighthouse and relax in a cozy dorm or private room overlooking the ocean, wander the native plant garden, or walk down to the water to explore the tide pools and secluded beach.

Just 25 miles south of San Francisco, HI-Point Montara offers an affordable seaside getaway for Bay Area locals and international guests alike. From the hostel, make your way a short distance down the coast to surf (or watch) the famous Mavericks break, or paddle tamer waves in a kayak. On land, bicycle scenic Hwy. 1, ride horse-back along the seashore, or explore the coastal towns of Half Moon Bay and Pacifica (each just 7 miles away).
Back at the hostel, sip a latte from the on-site espresso bar as you sit beside the lighthouse, enjoy free Wi-Fi in the comfy lounge, or take advantage of hostel activities such as game nights and movie screenings.
Guests at this Certified Green hostel can choose to stay in either private or shared dorm-style rooms, some with water views. Guests can also enjoy a fully equipped self-service kitchen complete with ocean-view dining area, as well as an outdoor picnic area with barbecue grill.
Other amenities include:
*Free Wi-Fi and pay-as-you-go DSL Internet terminals
*Free bag and bike storage
*Free linens and towels
*Free on-site parking
*Tempur-Pedic mattresses
*On-site laundry facilities.
