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 hostelâ€™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.
