Escape civilization and leave your tent at home! HI-Point Reyes is nestled in a secluded valley just two miles from the beach, within the Point Reyes National Seashore. As the only accommodation located within the park, the hostel is an ideal base for hiking, beach-combing, and wildlife-viewing adventures. A Certified Green Business, HI-Point Reyes looks after the environment while looking after its guests. Come enjoy sunny afternoons on our patio, quiet evenings in our comfy park-view lounges, and a good night’s sleep on our Tempur-Pedic mattresses. Important to note: be ready for a 'digital detox' during your stay, the hostel does NOT have WiFi and there is no cell phone service in this part of the Park.

Accommodations are in shared, gender-specific or co-ed dorms, each sleeping 8-10 people. In addition, there are 4 private rooms accommodating up to 5 people with one double bed and three twin/bunk beds. Children under the age of 6 are not allowed in the shared dorms and must stay in private rooms. Due to our facilities, bathrooms throughout the hostel are shared and gender-specific.

HI-Point Reyes has a fully equipped self-service guest kitchen and dining room where guests can prepare and enjoy their own meals. An outdoor patio with picnic tables and barbecue is also available for guest use. Other hostel amenities include free parking, bag storage and un-covered bicycle rack, and FREE hard-wired computer with internet.

From HI-Point Reyes, explore the Point Reyes National Seashore, famous for its abundant flora and fauna. Spot bobcats, fox, deer and elk, harbor seals, and sea lions, and watch the gray whale migration each January-April from the Point Reyes Lighthouse, just 25 miles from the hostel.

In the nearby town of Point Reyes Station, a handful of locally owned shops and restaurants line the small Main Street. Toby’s Feed Barn and Point Reyes books regularly host small events and the weekly summer farmers’ market. This small town is famous for culinary treats: check out Cowgirl Creamery, Brickmaiden Bakery, Side Street Kitchen, Bovine Bakery, Osteria Stellina and the Stationhouse Cafe, or head to one of the nearby oyster farms for a picnic of the day’s catch!

Jessica at the reception desk could be more welcoming. I have stayed here before and worked with her two times prior. She is usually NOT in a good mood. I wish I had known that you removed the shampoo/conditioner/soap dispenser from the shower. I would have brought my own soap. Can I purchase some new pillows for you?
