Welcome to our hostel

Seasonal Hostel: Open June 29 - September 1, 2018.
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.

Seasonal Hostel: Open June 29 - September 1, 2018.

We stayed in the women's dorm, which was great. Comments from the men's and co-ed dorms not so much. It's an old building and many items were in disrepair. Staff was doing their best, but in the three nights we were there, I think they called a plumber twice.

Thanks for the review. This is an old building and maintenance is always going on. We are in the process of some major renovations, including redoing the entire men's bathroom.

Girl at the front desk was super nice! Loved her and she was very helpful. The co-ed dorm is awful. I’m the basement, one small window for fresh air. I wouldn’t stay here again unless it was in the women’s dorm

Thanks for your review. I am glad to hear the staff was nice. We have great staff! I am sorry that your stay was not as pleasant as you had hoped. We are working on getting more fans for the co-ed room.
