Nestled in a secluded valley of Point Reyes National Seashore, the Point Reyes Hostel is surrounded by trails that wind 140 miles through a stunning coastal wilderness.
This 70,000-acre National Park is a geological island in time, protected from the modern world less than an hour away. Here you'll discover sandy and rocky beaches, saltwater and freshwater marsh, pine and fir forests, and riparian, coastal prairie, and scrub -- all home to a diverse population of wildlife.
Our secluded retreat is a perfect base camp for hiking and biking, kayaking on Tomales Bay, or strolling on a beautiful beach. The park is home to an abundance of wildlife, as well as the Point Reyes Lighthouse and various visitor centers with ranger-led programming. The tiny town of Point Reyes Station, 8 miles away, offers excellent dining and shopping.
The only lodging available within the boundaries of the National Seashore, our hostel is a peaceful, relaxing retreat for travelers of all ages. We have two historic ranch buildings, as well as a new "green" addition that is LEED Gold-certified. Guests are accommodated in shared dorms or private rooms, and enjoy comfortable lounges with park views, as well as fully equipped guest kitchens. In addition, the Point Reyes Hostel is a Bay Area Green Business and has received Bronze Eco-Certification from Sustainable Tourism International.
Reserve your stay at the Point Reyes Hostel today, and immerse yourself in a serene wilderness sanctuary that thrives and blossoms year-round.
