Montara Point Lighthouse Reviews
This lighthouse also has a very popular international hostel next to it. The views from here are breathtaking. The lighthouse itself is kind of down from the nearby high way so it doesn't stick up ver... more »
We just stopped to check out the lighthouse. It's small and you can't see inside. We stayed about 30 minutes total checking out the area. Not a lot of parking. It's free! more »
Dorms and private rooms. My room looked out on a gloriously beautiful beach. Friendly and helpful staff. Well stocked kitchens. I loved it and will stay there again. more »
One of the most peaceful places in California, the lighthouse hostel is a hidden gem. The facilities are in great condition. Each night you go to bed hearing the crash of the waves against the cliffs, and it doesn't get much better than that. They have shared rooms, as per usual of a hostel, but also a private room. There's two community kitchens, two lounging areas, and a large multipurpose room. The hike down to the beach only takes a minute or two!
The hostel and Point Montara were both nice, with breathtaking views of the ocean and a small park like atmosphere in the buildings and picnic tables. There was not a lot around, they sold coffee and snacks at the front desk. Definitely grocery shop before you go there. It is not easy to access the rest of the town from here, but the hiking and surfing recreational opportunities are superb if you do. You could spent a lot of time just at Point Montara, though.
Always easy free parking during the day. No beach, but gorgeous view of ocean. Knowledgeable staff, clean well kept rooms. Don't forget your lighthouse passport stamp! Close to many quaint coastal towns and a hundred miles of trails into Golden Gate National Recreational Area (GGNRA), Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, Coastal Trail, Devil's Slide,
This is my second time staying at PMLH. My team stays here every year for tournament. It is a truly gorgeous venue. Ocean views from almost every room. The staff is great. I would highly recommend, if your in the area, to stay at this hostel.
A fantastic hostel in a beautiful location! The staff is super friendly and accommodating, and everything is very clean and well-maintained. I look forward to staying here again in the future.
