Tide pools, redwoods, elephant seals, grey whales, hiking, biking, and the famous cliff-side hot tub await you at HI Pigeon Point Lighthouse hostel! 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, 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, 2-person minimum). In the hostel’s cozy main lounge, challenge a new friend to a board game, or ask the friendly staff for advice on the best local tide pools, restaurants, and more. If you ever tire of the hostel’s beach-cottage atmosphere and all the outdoor fun nearby, take a break in the charming nearby town of Pescadero or head 30 miles south for a day in Santa Cruz.
