I stayed here for one night with friends and we were all very impressed. The hostel is very clean and beds comfortable. The communal kitchen is very well equipped and always clean. The ablutions areas are also very clean and there are plenty of showers so we never had to wait. The hostel is very well placed to explore the... More

We had a good welcome from the assistant warden who had made up our bed. We had the en suite room on the ground floor which was very comfortable. The warden is good on keeping the kitchen clean and the eating area was next door to the kitchen. Only self catering in this hostel. Good base for walking, bird watching... More

We retuned later about 12.30 PM, only to hear our next door neighbours were arguing, the man was shouting, swearing, banging around in an abusive manner.. We went down to reception which had an emergency number, but the reply we got from the lady was... More

I booked two days in advance via Booking.com having checked the weather was fine for our one night/two day stay. The accommodation left was either extremely expensive and/or was a drive from the town. I therefore booked the YH (the last time was over 30 years ago!) for me and hubby as it was only £55 for a private double... More

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.
