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.

I loved getting up on the morning and walking to the beach to see the sun rise. It was wonderful being located so near the beautiful beach. I stayed the last night the hostel was open for the season. The last night potluck was so nice. I enjoyed having a shared meal and meeting such nice travelers and staff.

Love the location,a 4 minute walk to the ocean. Only wish Truro would stay open later in the season.
