This small and almost perfectly formed traditional country Youth Hostel is housed in the former village Co-Op - in fact, it still retains many of its unique original features. Set in the centre of picturesque Youlgrave village (note the all-important spelling difference!) and located in stunning White Peak countryside, this hostel is a great base for walkers, cyclists and sightseers alike.

The distinctive building overlooks the limestone dales around the River Bradford and has mountain biking, rock climbing and watersports easily within reach. Or if you're a history buff, Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House offer a fantastic day out for all the family. With everything you need to explore the Derbyshire Dales, this homely hostel has a large lounge to chill out in and picnic tables outside to enjoy the countryside.

The hostel features one dining/lounge area and a large, well-equipped self-catering kitchen. There is also a boot/drying room and a bike store. There are 42 beds spread over 9 rooms, including both dorms and private rooms. Here are the rooms and beds available:

1 x 8-bed room

1 x 2-bed room

2 x 6-bed room

5 x 4-bed room

All rooms contain bunk beds. There are no en-suite rooms at this property, but plenty of individual toilets and showers close to bedrooms. You can relax outside on sunny days in our small front yard with three picnic tables.

Check in is from 5pm . Access to hostel after 10pm is by door code. Checked-in guests staying over two nights can get a key to access hostel during the day – although there are a limited availability of keys.

As you enter the hostel through the main door you will arrive in our open plan living and dining space which was the original shop area.

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.
