YHA Eden Project is the official on-site accommodation provider for the well-known Eden Project. Staying here means you'll be right on site to visit Cornwall's famous biomes, gardens and even the world's largest rainforest in captivity! There are also the Eden Sessions gigs featuring great acts if music is your thing.

About YHA Eden Project

YHA Eden Project is powered by Snoozebox, meaning the hostel is created from shipping containers (in keeping with the Eden Project's sustainable outlook). The modern, purpose-built containers are fitted out to a high spec so you'll be able to relax in comfort in this unique space. Guests can enjoy the great outdoors with the Eden Project itself right around the corner, as well as great links to cycle tracks and footpaths if you want to get out into the beautiful Cornish countryside.

***Please note, we do not charge an additional temporary membership fee. Discounts are not available for members of YHA (England & Wales) or IYHF as part of this booking.***

*All bookings for more than 16 people will not be accepted by YHA and will be cancelled.*
