Experience Monterey in the style of a true traveler with a stay at the HI-Monterey Hostel.
A haven for all from backpackers and the budget-minded to families and conference or school groups, the hostel welcomes guests in both traditional European dormitory- style quarters and private family rooms.
Mingle with travelers from across the United States and the world in the large main lounge, complete with overstuffed couches, a piano and a selection of books and games. And, start the day on a sweet note with the complimentary pancake breakfast bar set up daily in the hostel's self-serve guest kitchen.
Ideally located near Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the Monterey Hostel is convenient to Conference Centers and major hotels as well as historic downtown Monterey, Fisherman's Wharf and local bus lines. The Monterey Bay Coastal Trail, which runs 18 miles between Pacific Grove and Castroville, is just blocks away and lined with cafes, shops and bicycle and kayak rental outlets.
After a full day in Monterey, visitors can also extend their adventure by exploring the wineries of sun-drenched Carmel Valley, the coastal cliffs and state parks of Big Sur and the art galleries and white sand beaches in Carmel-by-the-Sea, all located within minutes of the hostel.
