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

Spent a wonderful four days in this YHA We are a family of 5 and there were 12 of us all together, so we were spread out amongst the mainly 4 bed (2 x bunks) available. What makes these trips special are the company you have come with and the other visitors, this time both were great and a lot... 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

A very well equipped, modern hostel at the back of town. Very helpful staff who coped well with our case being transported along the North Norfolk path by Hikehelp. We shared a 4 bedded room that was rather cramped and dark. Try to book a dormitory to yourself. Excellent pub across the road used by locals. Good food and reasonably... More

Loved our weekend at this great hostel. Friendly and welcoming as well as clean and well equipped. Ideal location to explore lovely Wells. Good hot showers and modern fixtures throughout. Nice lounge with comfy sofas, books, TV and games. Quiet room for a relaxed read if you prefer. Lots of local info available and a co-op 5 mins away along... More

This is, hands down, the nicest hostel I've stayed in. It's carpeted, clean, well-lit, and generally a beautiful establishment. Mark, the man in charge, has been incredibly gracious to me and helped me with everything I needed. Just wish there was WiFi here. Other than that, it's simply amazing. Kudos!

I stayed in a family room here for 1 night with a friend. We had a car but as others have said the hostel is well-located for public transport. Wells is a pretty town with some excellent fish & chip shops by the harbour. The facilities we used were good and the manager friendly and helpful. The shower is decent... More

Ok, let's get the very few negatives out of the way first. I stayed in this youth hostel for the whole of last week and my one major gripe is that it doesn't offer free wifi. This might not have been such an issue had it not been so hard to catch a signal indoors. I found that all over... More

Restful atmosphere and a sparkling clean hostel on a characterful street makes this one of my favourite UK hostels. Cheery staff, above average facilities for this price range, and a secure place for the cycle. For a short seaside break in Norfolk, this is the place.
