About YHA Truleigh Hill

South Downs Way on the doorstep

Have the South Downs Way at your door and spectacular views from the window at this modern and comfortable location. YHA Truleigh Hill is great for walking and cycling groups, plus it’s an ideal place for a school trip by the sea. With comfy social spaces and glorious grounds to spread out in, groups can explore the National Park in style. We’ve got handy facilities like free Wi-Fi and bike hire too.

Whether you’re settling down for breakfast, lunch or dinner or sampling our fully licensed bar, YHA Truleigh Hill has everything you need. Do some quiet studying in our garden or lounge, or head out on two wheels (or two feet) on one of our favourite picturesque routes.

YHA Truleigh Hill makes a great base for school trips visiting Brighton, so you can explore top attractions like the Royal Pavilion and Brighton Pier. Alternatively, take the breathtaking walking route to Seaford to the Seven Sisters – a series of chalk cliffs on the coast. The South Downs National Park is the perfect location for burning off steam in idyllic surroundings.
