HI-Point Reyes is two miles from the ocean in a secluded valley on Point Reyes National Seashore, known for its abundant flora and fauna, including bobcats, fox, deer and elk, harbor seals, and sea lions. The varied habitat, unique coastal climate, and location draw a rich and diverse array of breeding and migrating birds.
Point Reyes National Seashore juts far out into the path of migrating gray whales, and Point Reyes Lighthouse, 25 miles from the hostel, is the best place in the Bay Area for whale watching January-April. Bear Valley Visitor Center, eight miles away, has informative displays on the area's geological, natural, and native history. Hiking trails leave from the hostel grounds.

What travellers think
I just need to remember to bring ear plugs next time!! Otherwise, the overall experience staying here is very good. I'd like to suggest to glue rubbers or felt materials under the legs of the dining chairs (I stayed in Dolphin) to make the movement of the chairs less annoyingly noisy.
