I have been to Montara once before & enjoyed both times. When I checked out & asked about public transit, one guy in office piped up (standing behind young lady helping me) Said " Did you check your smartphone" That is not an appropriate response when a customer is asking for help !!!!!!!!!!!

Easily the best HI hostel I have stayed at in North America. Gorgeous, stunning location (reminiscent of Ken Kesey's "Sometimes a Great Notion), that makes you feel like you're in Oregon. Beautiful lighthouse and setting, and just overall a wonderful place to stay.

Emplacement magnifique, j'ai bien aimé dormir avec le bruit des vagues. L'alarme de feu est partie 2 fois en pleine nuit par contre alors qu'il n'y avait rien alors il faut régler cela c'est inquiétant de se faire réveiller en pleine nuit comme ça.
