Latest update 21/02/2018 with 216 locations in the file.
Since 1930 the Youth Hostel Association has looked after many hundreds of properties providing budget accommodation open to everyone, especially young people. In general the locations mark the entrance or car park to the property but where there are no mapped roads nearby then the nearest appropriate approach point is plotted. Some properties are in remote areas of the countryside and a suitable approach road is plotted instead. If the property is a very long way from the road then the actual location of the property is plotted. They may be approachable only on foot! The basis for this file is the list of properties on the Youth Hostel Association web site. The telephone number for each property or site is provided where available. You are advised to phone before you leave to ensure the hostel is open.
The files are available in Tomtom ov2, Garmin csv and gpx, Volvo Sensus gpx, Google Earth kml and Google Maps kmz format. The Tomtom ov2 files can be used in the CoPilot phone navigation app. See the included instructions.
