Surrounded by three acres of wooded land in a quiet rural area, the newly renovated cabins of HI Eastham are only a short distance from the wide, white sandy beaches of Cape Cod.

The main building has a fully equipped kitchen for preparing your own meals and a large dining area. The Eastham Hostel also has private cabins with a double bed and three singles as well as co-ed dormitory cabins. Breakfast, Wi-Fi access and parking are all free. All bed linens and a bath towel are included in the overnight rate.

Bicycle and kayak rentals are available in town and at the beach. Cyclists can pedal down the nearby Cape Cod Rail Trail, a 30-mile bike path that attracts thousands of visitors each year. The hostel also offers group packages that include surfing and kayaking excursions.

Going since 1990s. Best location on Cape Cod. Saw 150 seals, whales and a repeatedly jumping whale at the mouth of Nauset Marsh. Lots to do in Wellfleet and in Eastham. Visit suggestions: Natural History Museum in Brewster, the Chatham Light, Monomoy Visitors site, Cape Cod visitor's center, a Kettle pond & other places to truly get an idea of the Cape. Green rating of good since the ceiling tube lighting is fluorescent and should be T8 LED dimmable which would help as a nightlite.

Eastham is a good place to see the Cape and the visitor center.
