Cheap/Awesome Hostel at Point Reyes

While traveling during my semester abroad in college, I was totally amazed by and mildly obsessed with hostels.  The cheap, Broke-Ass friendly lodgings were always awesome in my experience, and even horror stories of drunk strangers urinating on a friend’s luggage didn’t phase me.

Upon my return to the states, the harsh, hostel-lacking reality hit me hard the next time I had to book a hotel for some ungodly amount per night.  Hostels here are few and far between, and because of their scarceness, those that do exist seem creepy and unreliable.  I admit, I have no solid evidence of these shortcomings, but the magic was gone and I thought my days of hostel hopping were an ocean away.

On a recent day-trip adventure to Point Reyes (which rules btw), I learned that tucked into the unspoiled wilderness is an amazing and inexpensive, you guessed it, HOSTEL!  I had heard legend of a similar setup in the Marin Headlands and had always meant to g-search it.  Now, on a flyer in my hand and a website on my Internet lies the promise of a new era of U.S. hostels.

The facilities look clean, the clientele un-creepy, and the surroundings breathtaking.  Rooms start at $22 per night, so if you too are hostel-obsessed, book now because I’m sure the place fills up fast.  Happy hosteling!

Ali was born and raised in the Wholesome/Creepy capital of the world, Salt Lake City, UT. Once she was old enough to blow that pop stand she escaped to the place that was the anti-SLC: The Peoples Gay-public of Drugifornia aka San Francisco (holla 30 Rock!). You can now find her throughout this glorious city slurping Pho and scheming with her best friend Pinky doing what they do every night; try and take over the world.
