It's clean friendly and just next to the coastal hopper bus so great for Walkers on the North Norfolk Coastal Way. Good self catering facilities too. The local Co-op is near for supplies and parking out front.

Great hostel! Clean, great water pressure, friendly staff. Would be useful to have in-room lockers or locks on the little cupboards. Excellent location, within walking distance to buses and shops. Kitchen was well equipped.

On a cycling break with friend Jude, we chose to stay in youth hostels to economise. The facilities were excellent & as we arrived soaked from 5 hours cycling in the rain, we were thrilled to find very efficient drying facilities. The showers were spacious, plentiful & spotless, as were the toilets. The dorms were cosy & the bunks were... More

Excellent hostel, modern appearance and facilities throughout, very comfortable. Can book a private room - that can include a double bed - or can book a shared room. Fantastic showers. Ideal for walking the coastpath - using the frequent Coasthopper bus service to do linear routes. Excellent value.

I have just rented the whole hostel for a party of 20 ladies for three nights, and what a lovely hostel it is. We found the hostel to be extremely clean and comfortable, the beds had been made up for us prior to our arrival, which is very unusual. The kitchen is a good size which is important for us... More

Regular warden was away, and the guest one surprised me by asking for 2 forms of ID. Odd that the YHA didn't tell me I would need any at all - and maybe odder still that despite not having any, I was still allowed to stay. I mean, why bother asking/demanding and then not worrying about it? Hostel is very... More
