Pigeon Point Lighthouse Hostel
Fifty miles south of San Francisco, you can relax in a hot tub with panoramic views of the Pacific, and then fall asleep gazing up at one of the tallest lighthouses in America. This one-of-a-kind getaway is available only at the Pigeon Point Lighthouse Hostel.

Perched on a cliff on the central California coast, the 115-foot Pigeon Point Lighthouse has guided mariners since 1872. The hostel provides comfortable, affordable accommodations in the restored lighthouse keeper's quarters. Guests can opt for shared or private rooms, and also enjoy cozy lounges, fully equipped kitchens, and amenities including satellite Internet, free WiFi, and free parking. In addition, the Pigeon Point Lighthouse Hostel is a certified green business.

On weekends, free history walks guided by State Parks docents are available on the hostel grounds. The Pigeon Point Lighthouse Hostel is also a popular spot for whale watching, and a convenient base for exploring nearby coastside communities as well as the ancient redwood forests at Butano State Park, the bird sanctuary of Pescadero Marsh, and Año Nuevo State Reserve, breeding site of northern elephant seals.
