I've stayed in many of the YHA's in England and Wales and always had a good time, but this one is possibly the best I've ever been to. The building was converted from a church hall to a YHA in 2002, and has been very well maintained since, so everything looks virtually brand new. The accommodation is spacious, with plenty of toilets and showers, a large lounge with TV, a seperate quiet room (both of these have very comfy seating),dining room and games room. The staff are very friendly. The hostel is self-catering only, but there are several food shops and good pubs within 5 minutes walk.

Have never posted on this site before but found this hostel so amazing I just had to say something...... Have only stayed at one youth hostel before but this one has really made me want to visit more!! It was so clean and comfortable adn the decor and interior design was lovely. My 13yr old son made friends with other children, we enjoyed a nice friendly Saturday night with another family watching Britains Got Talent :))). As a single parent this was a breath of fresh air. And the warden was very helpful and friendly - will definitely be going back!

Stayed for two days at this hostel. Our room was really big. The shower was big too. I had never stayed at self catering hostel before and I really enjoyed my stay.

I travelled in summer 2011 with my school for a walking holiday. The showers were powerful and hot, the beds were comfortable (but quite firm) and the kitchen was clean and well equipped for making hot chocolate! The owner was friendly, and the best bit, only 5 minutes away from the town and the arcade! The beach is a 30 minute walk away and it is the best one I've ever been to.... The toilets were nice and it was overall a great place to stay.

We liked this hostel. We had a private room up in the top of the building, and found it very clean. For a hostel, it's very comfortabl and convenient, well decorated and with helpful staff who know lots of what there is to do in the area. It's in a rather quiet back street of Wells, a little traditional seaside town which has become a favourite of the chic set because of its quaint old-fashionedness. It is definitely a good way of staying here without paying the rather high prices of smarter and more luxurious accommmodation, and it has the advantage that you can talk with other travellers and with the wardens. We didn't eat here but had fish and chips! Self catering was fine, too. Well done Wells hostel.
