YHA Eastbourne offers newly built accommodation of a high standard on the South Downs. The area is great for family breaks on the South Downs. Only one mile from the town centre and seafront, it’s the perfect base for a country or seaside holiday. Eastbourne’s famous pier, bandstand, stunning beach and attractions are all within easy reach.

We're a half an hour (very scenic) stroll from the bustle of Eastbourne town centre and all its charm. With award-winning beaches, a beautiful coastline and a Victorian vibe all of its own, this seaside resort is Brighton's scenic sibling. Catch the land train along the seafront, soak up the art scene in the Towner Art Gallery, or build a sandcastle in sight of 'the busiest bandstand in the UK'.
