Welcome to our hostel

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.

* Free on-site parking<br>

I took a side trip from San Francisco up to the Point Reyes National Seashore and spent one night in the hostel there. It was absolutely beautiful. Highly recommended for those interested in getting away from the city for a change of pace and scenery. The weather was splendid--no fog or rain, making all the stars in the sky sparkle. Clean, quiet, cozy and very friendly. If I ever get up that way again, I will definitely stay a second time.
