I had an excellent stay for 4 nights at YHA Eyam. I was self catered for all my meals so can't comment on the food. The self catering facility is outside, but not far and very clean. Tidy and well run little hostel with a gorgeous view and a couple of trails leading off from it. Beware the sharp ascent... More

A smaller hostel than some of the others, but no less for that. The staff were very friendly and helpful, taking ages to describe routes for walks to one of our party, and lending him a book. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The building itself is lovely, being a turreted folly. Eyam is an interesting place, with lots of history... More

Hi Victoria, Thankyou for your very informative review. We are pleased that you had such an enjoyable stay with us.

I was in the "Bunkhouse" which is separate from the main building. Very neat and tidy 2-bed room, although a little small. It has a sink in the room and the shower and toilet are only a few paces down the hall and shared with only one other room. The bed and pillow were very comfortable. The main house is... More

Great for walking breaks, nestling on the hillside above the legendary plague village of Eyam. Friendly helpful staff, nice food, decent rooms and facilities. Footpaths virtually from the door to the village or out into the wilds to explore. Great value. Definitely recommended.

Loved this YHA, location was great and I lived the building. Showers and toilets all good and very clean. Only downside was the very small self catering Kitchen.

We stayed here for a weekend in June as a party of ten for staff adventure training. The rooms are comfortable and warm, although the bunk beds are a bit creaky if you have to get up in the night. The service is friendly and the cooked breakfasts are excellent. A very good hostel.

Stayed with my daughter for two nights. Good base for exploring. Our twin room (bunks) was warm, wc and shower facilities were just across the corridor. Small self catering kitchen (in separate building) was adequate, meals bought at the yha were fine. No unnecessary frills - which is just what we like!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This captivating Victorian folly resembles a tiny turreted castle perched on the hillside overlooking historic Eyam. Two thirds of Eyam's population was wiped out during the Great Plague. Trace the tale as you wander around the village, or enjoy the excellent walking around the surrounding White and Dark Peak. Delicious home-cooked meals are available at this fully licensed hostel, a great location for cheap weekend breaks and Peak District activity breaks. ... more   less
