Although this has the usual hostel set-up (communal dining and living areas etc), this was far removed from most hostels I've stayed at. We stayed in the newly built accommodation separate from the main building and as such, shared the facilities with only a few other people. The dining/kitchen area in this block was amazing, nicer than my own house! We enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra night and if we ever return to California, we will somehow try and incorporate a night at Point Reyes Hostel into our trip.

Having never stayed in a hostel before, I have to admit I was somewhat apprehensive. However, my fears were soon put to rest. We stayed in a private room, with mattresses that were more comfortable than a lot of B&B's where we have stayed. For the first time staying, I was glad that no one else was sharing the rest of the two bedroom dorm with us. The kitchen we used was well equipped with everything we needed to cook some really good meals. Of course, the hiking, the wild life, and the ocean are always to be enjoyed on Point Reyes. And be sure you eat at Drake's Bay Cafe for a little seaside ambiance.

I stayed here one Saturday night in May 2012. I stayed in the women's dorm for $24. The hostel is in a great, isolated location on Point Reyes. You can walk or drive a short distance to the beach. A trailhead is about a quarter-mile away. All of Point Reyes is a short drive away. The bed was super comfy with a memory-foam mattress and lots of blankets. The dorm had its own bathroom with two toilets and two showers, which were clean. There is a big kitchen with lots of room for people to cook. The seating area was very comfortable to sit and read. There is also an outside grill and picnic area.

The hostel is several, winding miles from any store so you have to bring all your food with you. Also, there is no TV or WiFi so bring your books.

Stayed at a private room on a new year's day break. I read on their hostel website that the private rooms are hard to reserve, but apparently they've opened up 4 newly built private rooms in Dec 2011, thus the availability was quite good when I called. Those new private rooms are located in a separate, dedicated building across from the older main hostel building, and the building has it's own brand-new kitchen that are shared only among those staying in those private rooms. I really liked the kitchen - clean, large, high ceiling, patio and sofa setting area, a long farmhouse table. Bathroom and shower rooms are shared between 2 private rooms. I don't have much experience with hostels in the USA, but this place was definitely one of the cleanest and more secluded place to stay (secluded both in terms of the hostel location itself and among guests).

Can't speak much about the main hostel building, but it looked cozy and welcoming.

The private room costed $120 per night for us and we shared the room with friends (4 adults and some small kids). It was really a great bargain and a wonderful stay all in all. Highly recommended.

Point Reyes Hostel is a great location for hiking in the Point Reyes Seashore. The hostel beds are very comfortable with bedding provided and ample blankets. The 10PM Quiet Time is honored. The one disappointment was the during the day (10-4:30) you are not allowed to stay at the hostel. You MUST leave the property and noit return until 4:30 PM. You can leave your gear there, but you cannot return until 4:30 PM. So make sure you take a long hike!

Room Tip: Elk Preserve is wonderful.
