Stayed here for night only en route to San Francsco aving driven up the coast Road from Santa Monica. Found it to be truly delightful. There was a log burning stove and really was quite cosy. The place was very well run and spotlessly clean. What impressed me most was the small and friendly atmosphere it exuded. Well laid out... More

The views and beach here are simply stunning! The property is very well maintained, clean, comfortable and feels like home. The staff are beyond nice and knowledgeable about the area and things to see/do.... which there is no shortage of! It's a great home base to explore the coast from. The ocean views from the rooms and kitchen are a... More

This place is a great little getaway spot. Clean accommodations right on the ocean with your own little private beach and lighthouse. The staff is friendly, they make great coffee, and you asleep to the sound of the waves.

A 1900 lighthouse next to your room with stunning vistas above a private beach. Very clean and the staff was great with suggestions for adventures during the day. The location is perfect for exploring nearby tide pools, sandy beaches, as well as hiking trails to the top of Mt Montara.

Lovely location right on the ocean. The sleeping accommodations are basic but comfortable. Kitchen is pretty well equipped so it's nice to bring your own food and cook. My son and I used this as a base for exploring the coast down to Ano Nuevo. Half Moon Bay, which is nearby, is quite charming. This hostel is clean and in... More

What a beautiful property! How wonderful to be surrounded by the blooming ice plant - hillsides of green and yellow and pink! So many flowers still in bloom ( I'm from Colorado - not many flowers get through the heaps of snow)! What a relaxing joy to sit on the benches mesmerized by the crashing waves pounding in on the...

The hostel stay was the highlight of a fall west coast trip. The private room came with a world-class view. It was convenient for coastal exploration. But I hardly needed to go anywhere because the views were amazing. I will definitely return.

We stayed for one night in this hostel and it was perfect. This place is really super charming with the lighthouse, the cliff and the beach. It is perfect for a family with children, friends travelling together, or solitary souls. Shared kitchen, dining spaces and living room create a good and friendly atmosphere in the dorm part. A 30-minute drive... More

This is a great destination doable without a car. From San Francisco take BART subway to Daly City. Catch bus 110 to Linda Mar park and ride lot. Then , take Bus 17 to 7th and Main. Walk a few blocks (half mile) to the hostel. Read their directions online. Perfect. You can drive there too and park easily. Ask... More
