Point Reyes Hostel

Hostel Point Reyes

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

HI-Point Reyes is two miles from the ocean in a secluded valley on Point Reyes National Seashore, known for its abundant flora and fauna, including bobcats, fox, deer and elk, harbor seals, and sea lions. The varied habitat, unique coastal climate, and location draw a rich and diverse array of breeding and migrating birds.

Point Reyes National Seashore juts far out into the path of migrating gray whales, and Point Reyes Lighthouse, 25 miles from the hostel, is the best place in the Bay Area for whale watching January-April. Bear Valley Visitor Center, eight miles away, has informative displays on the area's geological, natural, and native history. Hiking trails leave from the hostel grounds.

Point Reyes hostel offers the following services and amenities to their guests:

* Free on-site parking<br>
* Baggage and bicycle storage<br>
* Secure lockers<br>
* Interpretive displays and information about the surrounding area.<br>
