HI - Point Montara Lighthouse
The Point Montara Lighthouse may be small, but it's also mighty. Perched on a cliff overlooking the rocky Pacific coast, it was once one of the most important signals for navigators approaching San Francisco's harbor -- its strong, low beam (now automated) cuts beneath the thickest of fog.
Today, it's still a beacon for travelers -- among the top ten customer-rated HI hostels in the world, HI-Point Montara Lighthouse is an affordable seaside getaway for Bay Area and international guests alike.
Stay in a cozy dorm or private room overlooking the ocean, sip a latte on the point beside the lighthouse (the front desk doubles as Hostel Grounds, serving fair-trade espresso drinks), wander the native plant garden maintained by hostel staff, or walk down to the water to explore tide pools or chill on the secluded beach.
For even more adventure, surf (or watch) the famous Mavericks break a short ways down the coast -- or paddle tamer waves in a kayak. On land, bike scenic Highway 1, ride horseback along the shore, or explore the coastal towns of Half Moon Bay and Pacifica (both 7 miles away).
Hostel amenities include free WiFi, free linens and towels, Tempur-Pedic mattresses, an outdoor picnic area and grill, full kitchen facilities, bag and bike storage, and on-site laundry.
The hostel is also a Certified Bay Area Green Business. Our green practices include composting, recycling, reducing water and energy usage through efficient appliances, lighting, and faucets, and using environmentally friendly cleaning products.

The hostel is located 25 miles south of San Francisco, just off Coastal Highway One at 16th Street, between the small towns of Montara and Moss Beach. The lighthouse is not easily visible from the road, and is located on a curve in the road.
When driving south on Highway 1, the hostel driveway is located just past the end of a guardrail -- turn right and drive through the chain-link fence gate into the parking lot.
When driving north on Highway 1, we highly recommend passing the hostel entrance and turning around in Montara, then entering the hostel driveway from the southbound lane.
Free parking is available at the hostel on a first-come first-served basis.
USING PUBLIC TRANSIT
From the Daly City BART station, take SamTrans bus 110 to the Linda Mar Park and Ride in Pacifica.
On WEEKDAYS, take SamTrans bus 294 from Pacifica to Highway 1 and 16th Street. Tell the driver where you are going, as 16th Street is not an automatic stop. Walk north 1/2 block on Highway 1; the hostel is on your left.
On WEEKENDS, take SamTrans bus 17 from Pacifica to Main and 7th Streets. Walk south on Main (which becomes a pedestrian path) to 16th Street and carefully cross the highway onto the hostel driveway.
