Welcome to our hostel

Originally a coast guard station, HI Truro is the furthest hostel out on the ‘arm’ of Cape Cod. Located in the Cape Cod National Seashore, the hostel is just a 5-minute walk from the beach. Large picture windows provide a breathtaking view from the spacious kitchen and dining area. The Truro hostel has two private rooms in addition to dorms. Breakfast and parking are free.

HI Truro provides easy access to fresh water ponds, bike paths, cranberry bogs, and nature trails. Provincetown, with its whale-watching opportunities and its vibrant street life, art galleries, shops, and restaurants is just 10 miles away.

The hostel is located 2 miles (3.5 km) from the nearest bus stop, so bring along a bicycle for the hostel visit if not travelling by car. Bike rentals are available in Orleans and Provincetown, and Cape Cod buses are equipped with bike racks.

Staff were really lovely and helpful and a really nice, large common area. The only down side is if you are arriving on a bus it is a long walk from the main road where they stop, which is also the location of the grocery shop. The location is ideal for the beach though, a couple of minutes and you're there and I had the added bonus of a beach (and sunrise) view from my bunk!

I really enjoyed the stay and the people I met. The last night I was there, one of the guests got a permit so we could all have a bonfire on the beach and I brought the food for s'mores. It was a lot of fun! There is also free breakfast in the morning, which I appreciated.
