Other Independent Hostels

There are lots of Independent hostels and Camping Barns, that used to be part of the YHA network, across England, Scotland & Wales and need your support. They make great bases or stop overs for walkers and cyclists – often in remote places where you need them most! Check them out here via the Independent Hostel Guide.
