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. Breakfast and parking are free.

HI Truro provides easy access to fresh water ponds, bike paths, cranberry bogs, and nature trails. Provincetown with its vibrant culture, spectacular beaches, and whale-watching opportunities 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 traveling by car. Bike rentals are available in Orleans and Provincetown, and Cape Cod busses are equipped with bike racks.

Dorm beds may be booked from this site or by e-mailing the hostel; private rooms must be reserved directly with the hostel. The maximum stay at this hostel is 14 days per season and a limit of 7 consecutive days with at least 14 days between visits.

While you’re in this neck of woods, it’s worth checking out the sights, sounds, smells and big city lights of Boston, which is just a ferry ride away!

HI Truro is authorized within Cape Cod National Seashore to provide overnight accommodations.
