The location of this cute hostel is just breathtaking! Too bad we couldn't get our own room and had to share with -amongst others- a loud snoring lady. Bathroom wasn't too clean.

This hostel is in a great setting...it's literally on a bluff overlooking the ocean. We slept with our windows open and could hear the waves crashing all night. We stayed in a dorm with three beds, but bought the third bed to make it a private room since all the private rooms were reserved. Very clean (actually hostel "closes" from... More

I was a bit nervous about the idea of staying at a "hostel" but the beautiful pictures of the property on the website convinced me. I reserved a private room and was very pleased with my stay. The room was small but was comfortable, and clean, and the view from the window was even better than I imagined. The sound... More

The lighthouse was a wonderfulu experience. The hostel experience was new and refreshing. We stayed in a private room that overlooked the ocean. We could hear the waves all night. The staff was extremely friendly and the rooms were clean. Less than 30 miles from San Fransisco, it was like another place and time. Will definitely visit again.

This is a great place to stay. Right on the cliff overlooking the ocean, you fall asleep to the sound of the Pacific. There's a private beach and a lighthouse for you to explore. I stayed in a private room and it was very clean. Very safe too and a lot of schools/camps bring their kids to this place. I... More
