This hostel is quaint and charming. Location is peaceful and beautiful. Lots to explore. Lighthouse Museum and Gift Shop right there! Enjoyed our one night stay in a private room with shared bath. Wish we could have stayed longer! Will definitely return again.

We booked 4 beds in a dorm at this hostel. The 6 bed dorm room had a private bathroom, which was very nice. Although the buildings could use a little tune up. It is a charming hostel. The beds were clean and comfortable and so was the kitchen. They have a great hot tub on the cliffs, overlooking the ocean....

There were three of us visiting in January, and we were lucky to have a whole building to ourselves. We didn't expect to have a kitchen, but we had full access and cooked a few meals. Loved using the jacuzzi at nighttime. We woke up early and watched the sunrise. The trails along the beach have some access to the...

We decided to stop into see this lighthouse, before continuing our trip to the Monterey Peninsula for the weekend. This lighthouse is located along highway 1 and was another place to see a part of the California coast and read about its history. There really is not much to see here in the way of a museum but the view...

What fun to stay at a lighthouse hostel. The day we arrived, we went to the lighthouse state park's visitor center and learned all about it from a friendly volunteer who looks like an old seaman. I was glad we did that, because it gave us a good appreciation for the history of the lighthouse and the things that have...

Well, we wanted to stay here as we had stayed previously a few years back. We were on the return leg (back to Canada) of a 9000 km ride to Baja California and back. We remembered the Pigeon Point hostel being close to amazing restaurant in Pescadero (Duarte's Tavern). (featured on Diners Drive-ins and Dives :) ). Well I went...

My friend and I found this hostel on the hostel international map and decided to stay on a whim. We were driving up the coast via the Pacific Coast Highway and it is right off of Highway 1. The staff were friendly and helpful. They have a hot tub on site that you can use, but you have to schedule...

Really serene spot. If only all hostels could be like this - waking up to the sound of the Pacific Ocean (waves crashing) and meeting an interesting mix of international travelers (young & old). Be sure to eat at Duarte's Tavern in nearby Pescadero (best sourdough bread ever?). This hostel is Highway 1 at its best.

This property was recommended by a retired senior Canadian couple, and it did not disappoint! It's a spectacular way to truly get away from it all. Staff is wonderful! Clientele is friendly and easygoing, and oh, the view! Refridgerator space is plentiful in the shared kitchen. Beds are well arranged to allow easy foot-traffic. Shared restroom-shower immaculately clean. I did...
