YHA is now the official onsite 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.

We stayed for 1 night during an Eden sessions. I will start with the positives: - the location is brilliant and the park and ride will take you from the Eden project back to the campsite well worth using the free service - staff were Aldo’s lovely and friendly and helpful on site - the showers were warm and the toilets always clean with toilet roll Now sorry for the negatives - there is absolutely no patrolling of the site so anyone can just turn up park up and camp - the site was incredibly loud until 3am and although there is the responsibility on the parties camping I feel the YHA should enforce better noise control and monitor the site better - the site is on a massive hill so very sloped and although it said ok the site it was fully booked the site was around 15% full so the tent could have been more spread out . They really are making less money on the site by not having sectioned out pitches they easily could have had a minimum of another 40 tents .

Hi, I stayed at the YHA near the Eden Project, I'm one of there snooze boxes. Lovely settings and the converted containers are a brilliant idea. Down side is that you can't check in until 5pm so you only get an evening, night use of them no afternoon and check out is 9:30am.

We stayed here for 2 nights camping for zip wiring at the Eden Project and the Sessions. Very friendly and helpful staff, good food, and clean facilities and warm showers. Would certainly camp here again.

Camped for one night for Eden sessions. The whole site is on a slope but clean and from the top has a lovely view of the sea. The hostel is a 5 minute walk away and the entrance to Eden is approx 3/4 mile away and mostly well lit.

This was a mini family adventure! We loved the uniqueness of staying a converted shipping container! The room was clean, warm and had everything we need needed. The shared space was inviting and the food looked great as well as being reasonably priced. We enjoyed a beer at the bar. The staff were amazingly friendly and helpful!! Only small niggle was that the website shows pictures of a small grocery shop, but that is no longer there. However, we loved our stay - next time we would like to try a land pod!
