This is a friendly and well-run hostel. The kitchen is kept clean, and the showers are very good indeed. There are attractive public rooms too. It makes a great base for activities in North Norfolk. Our three-bed room was entered from the corner of the bathroom area, and had only a skylight, so no view outside other than the sky....

We love the North Norfolk coast - so many brilliant beaches and walks. I wanted to introduce my 7 year old son to the YHA so Wells was the perfect first night for him. One long day on the beach, a chance to get warm and dry at the hostel and another long day on the beach made a fantastic...

Great value to be found at this friendly, clean, and well located hostel. Wells is becoming increasingly gentrified and affordable accommodation is harder to find: booked or gone. The hostel is in a lovely old building and we were given a very friendly welcome. The bed was also very comfortable. Nothing to moan about. Recommended. No dogs, unfortunately...

We spent a few days as a family in Wells and stayed at the YHA. The facilities are very clean, lots of space in different areas of the building. The room we were in was very warm, especially at night but it had been a very warm day. Great location, nice facilities, clean rooms, showers and toilets. The four person...
