About YHA South Downs

YHA South Downs is a refurbished, feature full, Sussex farmhouse on the South Downs Way.  Here, cost effective breaks can be enjoyed and with just a short walk from Southease Railway Station, the location is perfect.

Dormitory and private rooms confirm the quality of the refurbishment work, but ‘outdoor types’ can’t fail to be attracted by YHA South Downs’ camping pods and camping areas.

There is a cosy lounge and the kitchen has everything needed, if going for the self catering option.  For those still missing city life, nearby trains provide services into Brighton and Lewes.

A fully licensed bar and attractive cafe provide further evidence of recent investment and the cooked breakfast  really sets guests up for the day ahead.

Surrounded by the rolling hills of South Downs National Park, the inspiring grounds, here, provide the perfect platform for relaxation and exploration, without cost being a major factor.

Positive Reviews

Good return on investment

Recent investment has resulted in hugely upgraded rooms, facilities and services.

Peace and quiet

A really tranquil place, you can now luxuriate in nice surroundings, heated floors and a general feeling of quality, peace and quiet. What more could anyone want!

South Downs value

Suddenly, hotels and the like have latched on to the extra income to be generated from late arrivals It does NOT apply here. They provide additional superb value as instanced by a really impressive breakfast with which to start the day.

Negative Reviews

Busy roads

There’s a busy road outside and if you’ve drawn the short straw, your room will get traffic noise from early morning onwards.

Difficult to find

You are, after all, in the middle of nowhere so, late night arrivals are stumbling around in the dark, trying to find it. Maybe it's best to come armed with a torch!

Noisy guests

It’s the fault of those ‘noisy guests’ themselves. Don’t you just wish you could bang on their door at the crack of dawn and annoy them in the same way they did a few hours earlier!
