in the beautiful state of Massachusetts

Originally a Coast Guard station, Hostelling International Truro is the furthest hostel out on the “arm” of Cape Cod. Located in the Cape Cod National Seashore, the hostel is just a five-minute walk from the beach. Large picture windows provide a breathtaking view from the spacious kitchen and dining area. The hostel also provides quick access to fresh water ponds, bike paths, cranberry bogs, and nature trails throughout the National Seashore. Just ten miles down the road, a traveler can explore the great town of Provincetown. Provincetown is a mecca for artists. There are numerous art galleries and craft shops. To dine here is a gourmet’s dream. And then there are all those quaint shops. If you are real hard to impress you can go whale watching with the best fleets in the world or just take a walk on the trails through the dunes and marshes.

Check in time is between 12 Noon and 10pm. You must be 18 years or older or accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Note: If you are not already a member of Hostelling International, you may buy a temporary membership for $3/day at the hostel.

Please note that the maximum number of nights that you can stay is 14 nights in any calendar year.
