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.

The self-catering kitchen contains one cooker with six rings and three ovens, two microwaves, a large fridge-freezer, small fridge, toasters, kettle and a range of kitchen utensils, crockery and cutlery for 30 people. Tea towels are provided.

A modern masterpiece sitting high above town, YHA Eastbourne was built in 2009 and is renovated to a high standard.

There are 30 beds arranged in 1 x 7, 1 x 6, 1 x 4/5 (includes a double bed), 2 x 4, 1 x 3 and 1 x 2 bedded rooms. All rooms are en-suite, all bedding and bedlinen is provided. The 4/5 bedded room is suitable for wheelchair users.

Parking is opposite the building on public land.

YHA Eastbourne is on the A259 to the west of the town. From the town centre follow the signs for the A259 to Seaford/Newhaven. Pass the supermarket and church in the old town, continue up the hill out of town. YHA is on right. From the west, YHA is on left after the golf club car park.
