A good, clean hostel in an excellent location within easy walking distance of the quayside and local pubs and restaurants. Facilities were very good, bathrooms were clean with good showers. Ample parking - even in carnival weekend. Only drawback was the nearby church bells ringing loudly throughout the night, but would definitely return.

Dear Guest
I really do appreciate all of your kind words and comments .Church bells can be a little annoying so I know where you coming from but fortunately bells exercises occur on Sundays and Tuesdays evenings only. Thank you for taking the time to review YHA Well's and look forward to seeing you on your next visit.
Kind regards

Simply the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Very quiet, clean, friendly, etc. The kitchen is very-well equipped and the staff very helpful.
If you're going to the Norfolk coast on a tight budget, this hostel is perfect.

I've stayed in quite a few hostels and this one is very good. The staff were excellent with answers to all our questions. There is a big library of all the things to do and see and eat in Wells with common sense advice. The place is spotlessly clean including the kitchen and rooms. Well decorated with vibrant colours. Was informed straight away about the big groups in and managed to work round them. The kitchen has literally everything. Great location too and could park very easily. Cannot list all the good things there are too many. The very few negative bit are that the walls and floors are pretty thin and creaky but there are some polite notices around to try and keep the noise down. The hostel isn't normally manned late in the evening so if you have a very noisy group coming, using the tv or monopolising the kitchen there is only self policing. Church bell is bit annoying through night but eventually got used to it. Will defintely stay again.

Used the Wells Next the Sea YHA as our base to attend the Hunstanton 2012 Lifestsyles Festival. This was our second family visit to this Youth Hostel, the last time 10 years ago. It is still an excellent Youth Hostel, very well equipped kitchen and pleasent Dining area. Its a very clever conversion of what I believe to be a Victorian Church hall, there are a few parking spaces at the front of the building, with more to the rear. They even have a secured Bike cage to the rear of the building. Quiet Rooms and a TV Lounge with books and Games are also available. The excellent standard and the evident efficiency of this youth Hostel has got to be down to the manager, Jarred. There are lovely peices of Art work on the walls of the Hostel, all adding to the pleasant and fresh decor throughout. An excellent base for this lovely area of Norfolk, and If you've never been to Wells,,, and want reasonably priced accomodation, this YHA would be hard to beat. Well done Jarred!!

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.
