YHA South Downs

YHA South Downs is located on an idyllic farmstead right on the South Downs Way, giving you the perfect opportunity to explore this amazing off-road route in the beautiful South Downs National Park.


YHA South Downs was officially opened by the Queen in October 2013. The hostel consists of a refurbished farmhouse and barn buildings which have all the mod-cons while retaining many of their original features. In the heart of the South Downs National Park, this beautifully restored hostel offers a great location for exploring the South Downs but is also close enough to discover the nearby towns of Lewes and Newhaven, as well as the metropolitan cities of Brighton and London within easy distance. The hostel is fully licensed and boasts a brand new café where you can watch the world go by while enjoying a drink and a slice of homemade cake. Full catering options are also available for those who just want to relax and unwind after a busy day exploring the South Downs.
