From the 7th September shared toilets and showers will be in operation with extra Covid-secure cleaning regimes.

For the foreseeable future, the following facilities will not likely be in operation at YHA Eden Project, although we’re working hard to open these safely as soon as we can:

Dorm rooms
Dorms are not currently available but we’re working hard to re-introduce them.

We will be serving a limited food and drinks menu for guests to take away.

YHA Eden Project is powered by Snoozebox, meaning the hostel is created from shipping containers (in keeping with the Eden Project's sustainable outlook). This provides cosy and comfortable accommodation, with modern interiors and high spec bathrooms.

All rooms are en-suite. With 228 beds altogether, the rooms mainly consist of 4 beds and have access to Wi-Fi. There's a bar and barbecue area, with snacks available to purchase from the on-site shop. You're also within walking distance to the Eden Project itself.

YHA Eden Project is located on the doorstep of the Eden Project - you only have to walk a few steps and you're at the entrance! You can even buy your entrance tickets from us to really make the most of your trip. The location is perfect for those who love the outdoors as not only do you have the Eden Project gardens nearby, but the hostel is right next to the off-road cycle network. It's also a great base if you want to explore the Cornish coast, with water-sports available at St Austell Bay.

    Very small but well organized ecopods, great communal snack/breakfast bar. Right on the door of the eden project, it's a great location for a day at the eden project however it is a bus journey away from st austell, which is quite costly even for just a single. Perfect for one night; the lack of evening entertainment and food options, other than pizza, mean that I wouldn't enjoy a longer stay.

    I appreciate there is a Covid pandemic but I feel to not allow or supply a kettle is bad form. This would have made all the difference tour stay. The alarm was set off at 0630 on the Sunday morning of our stay as the smoke alarms are too sensitive and can be set of by steam, this may be a contributing factor to the above comment. However, as this type of accommodation appeals to over zealous youngsters maybe a different alarm system is needed? The staff are great, friendly, helpful.

    Though the buildings were innovative, the rooms were not conducive to cleaning: the bathrooms emitted an odor and sand was easily tracked in whenever you stepped outside. The breakfast offered was also lacking compared to others
