We attended a wedding in Murphys California. The next day we arrived at the Hostel at Hi Point Montera Lighthouse. This is a gem hiding in plane site. The staff was accommodating and the facilities perfect. Where else can you sleep mere feet from a cliff on the Pacific Ocean? Try this some time and let the crashing waves. Rolling... More

The room was sooooo cold during the night that I barely slept, and so does the shower room. Water in the restroom is soooooooo slow and there is no hot tap water. I found all kinds of insects, moth and spiders etc, under the bed and on the ceiling. The beds, bath robes, shower room floor and utensils seem never... More

A lighthouse implanted from Europe in the West Coast, pristine beaches, breathtaking cliffs on the ocean, wilderness and warm hospitality 25 miles south of San Francisco. It is not a five stars hotel although it sounds like one. I biked here from San Franisco with my friends and to start with we were treated to a show recording of a... More

My friend and I were welcomed to the Hostel by Chad and Ben. They gave us the "low-down" of the facility. I have been planning my stay here since I found out about it last year. You can't get much more reasonable than $30/night/person. The beds were comfortable, the facility clean and the view of the ocean...BREATHTAKING! If you are... More

A really nice place to stay, the staff were very pleasant and helpful (even when I left some stuff there!). It also offers some wonderful views of the cliff and some cosy outside chill out areas. Not much else you could want for a relatively cheap hostel.

We rented a dorm room for $79 that gave us a private room. The beds are memory foam and surprisingly comfortable. There is a shared bathroom, no tv, and the halls can be a little noisy. However for us it was a great trade off to be this close to the ocean and listen to the waves at night and... More

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.
