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

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

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!
