Directions to HI Point Montara Lighthouse Hostel
From the Daly City BART station, take SamTrans bus 110 to the Linda Mar Park and Ride in Pacifica. On WEEKDAYS, take SamTrans bus 294 from Pacifica to Highway 1 and 16th Street. Tell the driver where you are going, as 16th Street is not an automatic stop. Walk north 1/2 block on Highway 1; the hostel is on your left. On WEEKENDS, take SamTrans bus 17 from Pacifica to Main and 7th Streets. Walk south on Main (which becomes a pedestrian path) to 16th Street and carefully cross the highway onto the hostel driveway.
Free parking is available at the hostel on a first-come first-served basis.
The hostel is located 25 miles south of San Francisco at 16th Street and Coastal Highway 1 between the towns of Montara and Moss Beach. When driving northbound on Highway 1, we highly recommend passing the hostel entrance and turning around in Montara, then entering the hostel driveway from the southbound lane.
