YHA is now the official on-site accommodation provider for the Eden Project, one of Cornwall's most famous and recognisable attractions. YHA Eden Project (powered by Snoozebox) is a unique place to stay and it's perfectly in tune with its sustainable, eco-friendly surroundings! The modern en-suite bedrooms are made from recycled shipping containers and they're fully kitted out with high spec bathrooms and all the convenient comforts you'd expect from a hostel, even TVs!
The hostel site includes a large heated reception marquee that can be used as a fun social space, and there's a campsite a short walk away if you want to be even closer to nature. You can pitch your own tent or hire a beautiful festival-inspired bell tent in the summer months.
FREE WI-FI is available in communal areas for guests!
The Eden Project is more than an unforgettable day out. Along with its stunning gardens and popular music events such as the Eden Sessions, it breaks boundaries on social and environmental projects - creating an unforgettable visit for everyone. It's run in the greenest way possible, helping create a sustainable future and allowing valuable research into plant life, eco-systems and conservation.
A fantastic destination for school trips and families, the Eden Project will leave you with a new appreciation of nature - you're bound to pick up gardening tips too! With the world's largest rainforest in captivity and the famous Rainforest Canopy Walkway, there are plenty of fun things to do.
