Property Description

In 2021, Hostelling International became a signatory of the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative (GTPI), led by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Tourism Organization (WTO), in collaboration with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.

Tide pools, redwoods, elephant seals, gray whales, hiking, biking, and the famous cliff-side hot tub await you at HI-Pigeon Point Lighthouse! Perched atop a cliff on the site of a 115-foot-tall, working lighthouse, HI-Pigeon Point is one of the top-customer-rated HI hostels in the world. Just 50 miles from San Francisco, come explore neighboring Pescadero Marsh, Ano Nuevo State Reserve, Big Basin Redwoods State Park, and a string of state beaches. At night, fall asleep on Tempur-Pedic mattresses as you listen to the sound of waves crashing below.

Hostel amenities include free Wi-Fi, free linens, towels for rent, bag and bike storage, three fully equipped guest kitchens, beach access, an outdoor fire pit and patio, and a hot tub overlooking the ocean ($8 per person per half hour). 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.

The hostel is 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.

Hostelling International is a non-profit membership organization promoting peace through hostelling since 1909. To maintain our low overhead and to be able to offer low-budget accommodations to as many people as possible, non-members will be asked to pay a $4 non-membership fee per night upon check-in.

We loved our stay at Pigeon Point Lighty House. The location is beautiful, the facilities are comfortable, and the staff was very friendly. It was a much better value than the airbnb we stayed at in Santa Cruz. We hope to be back soon!
