We really enjoyed our stay in this friendly yh. It has recently been refurbished and offers comfortable accommodation in 9 rooms. Great size with 9 rooms and lounge as well as quiet room. Really good location with 5 min walk across the town to harbour. I highly recommend it. And North Norfolk is just beautiful!

The YHA is wells is very friendly, safe and modern. We stayed here over a quiet period (end of April - but weather fab!) and everything was great. The showers/toilet facilities were some of the best we have come across in hostels all around the world. having a nice hot shower really makes a difference when you are 'at the... More

This is a nice, small hostel, quite recently opened and still in good condition. Our room was fine and we had no complaint at all about the facilities. However, it was a real bind not ebign able to check in before 5pm. We and several other people were waiting on a hot day. We stayed at Sheringham the previoous day... More

a quiet north norfolk seaside town, quiet roads, great views, highly recommended for the cyclist who wants fairly easy cycling. Kings Lynn around 35 miles away, Dereham about the same, Castle Acre 40 miles all worth a look!

Seems like it was recently re-done, but there is still room for some upkeep eg one of the showers drain needed fixing as the water was not draining quickly enough and the water would sort of follod in that shower. The church next door with the bell that goes off each and every every hour day and night is a... More

Very well laid out, clean and comfortable. Excellent clean and well equipped kitchen for self catering - much better than many larger hostels. Staff very helpful, with lots of information about the area. Quiet location, a few minutes walk to the harbour and shops, and close to Coast Path. Will definitely be going back again.

I have stayed in many Youth Hostels as a child and an adult and enjoyed my recent stay at the hostel at Wells-next-the-sea. On arrival the warden was very helpful, friendly, and cheerful. I always find this must be quite difficult probably with the stress of running a large youth hostel alone. My online booking via the internet was found... More

The hostel is as lovely as described below. The quiet room is a bonus, and everywhere is very clean; I didn't have the urge to wipe down some paintwork as I have at other hostels! The personnel were helpful and knowledgeable. I really needed the wifi. I was cycling the back lanes and needed to access CycleStreets to plan my... More
