A must for dedicated walkers! This former quarry workers' house, at the summit of Honister Pass, is in true mountain country with easy access to England’s highest peaks. Steep valleys stretch down from the mountains to Derwentwater to create a beautiful and distinctive landscape. There’s a 400 year old working slate mine next door.

The Hostel

YHA Honister Hause is a 26 bed Youth Hostel. The hostel is a former quarry workers' house which boasts self-catering facilities, a restaurant and laundry and drying room facilities. Our open plan bar, lounge and dining room benefits from a wood burning stove which makes the hostel really cosy during the winter months. If you've been out exploring (and, let's face it, with a back yard like ours, who wouldn't?!), YHA Honister Hause has a large porch which is perfect for hanging wet clothing and storing muddy boots.

Hire the whole place

This hostel is occasionally made available for hire on an exclusive basis. This means that you can have the place to yourself and choose how many of your friends, family, club mates, etc., join you. We allocate availability for exclusive use in blocks, typically up to 90 days in the future. If you are looking for space to stay with us on a normal shared basis, and can’t see any availability three months or more into the future, then this hostel may be being held for Exclusive Hire. You can check availability for Exclusive Hire on our dedicated website, or use our live chat service for more information.


YHA Honister Hause cooks up a delicious hot and cold buffet breakfast to set you up for your day. Breakfast is now available at 10% off - ONLY WHEN PRE-BOOKED (in-hostel price: £5.25). Simply add it to your basket at check out to save!


We can provide a packed lunch including a freshly prepared sandwich, a delicious cake, cereal bar, a bottle of mineral water, a packet of crisps and a piece of fresh fruit. Eat in the hostel or take your packed lunch with you to enjoy during your day of exploring.

Supper Club

After your day on the mountains, relax and enjoy a good meal in our licensed restaurant. YHA Honister Hause offers the YHA Supper Club menu - a set three course meal served at a set time of 7pm. This allows all the guests in the hostel to sit together over dinner and share stories about their adventures.

Kids Eat Free

One free children's meal is available per adult main meal from the main menu when purchased at the same time. This offer is not available on breakfast.


YHA Honister Hause has an alcohol license and so you can enjoy a cold beer or a glass of wine as well as a selection of hot and cold drinks.
