We three women of a certain age and one adult daughter spent last Sunday night at the hostel. For the price it can't be beat! It is clean, well run, and in the beautiful Pt. Reyes National Seashore. No alcohol allowed perhaps explains the lack of younger, louder guests. We stayed in the 10 person dorm (5 bunk beds) for...

I'd been to the Point Reyes National Park before and wanted more time to explore more. This was a good place to do it from. The park itself is phenomenal!! I'm glad I took the time to enjoy all it has to offer. The hostel is quite remote and inaccessible without a car as public transport stops about 6-7 miles...

Located in the secluded Point Reyes National Seashore- this is my weekend getaway retreat- quiet and peaceful with hiking and biking trails everywhere. Clean, cozy and reasonable accommodations with a short jaunt to the beach.

We stayed in one of the family rooms in the new building. The bathroom, which was shared between two rooms, was split into a toilet/sink room and a shower/sink room. The kitchen was shared between six rooms. Everything was very clean and relatively new. We had great neighbors and had no trouble sharing space. This place is quite remote, so...

We stayed in a private room over the past weekend. We had a great experience. I guess the only thing that would have been better would be if the beds were more comfortable. The private rooms are set up really well so you don't get much noise from other rooms. Only share the bathroom with one other room so no...

I absolutely love staying at the hostel in Point Reyes National Seashore. It's very cozy and clean and in a phenomenal location. The staff are very helpful in giving visitors all the information they need for their adventures. We really loved seeing the lighthouse and the whales off shore. Other hostellers took advantage of a lot of the hiking trails...

We spent a night in a private room in the new LEED certified building at the Point Reyes Hostel. Quiet, comfortable, clean. Attached kitchen was well-equipped and comfy. Main building also had a kitchen for use, but we used the one in the private room building. Main building also has a community room, though it's rather small and, though it...

I stay at Point Reyes Hostel because it was the only hostel in the area while I was on a cycle tour.

This was our first Hostel experience and it was great. The Staff were delightful and helpful and the property is more than just pretty...it is beautiful and well maintained. It is off the beaten path but there are effective signs pointing the way. We expected to be surrounded by very young travelers but were surprised to find a generous number...

Loved this place. Very modern feel in a fantastic location. Kitchen facilities are excellent and staff very, very helpful. The hostel is located next to some fab walks to the beach and along. Very convenient! We really enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this to all.
