Stayed for one night in dormitory. Lovely little hostel - friendly atmosphere, clean, well presented. 4 guests in 4-bedded bunk room but enough space. Not en-suite but showers were excellent. Lovely to see a decent self-catering kitchen and a quiet common room as well as the lounge with the TV (which was off anyway). Excellent enthusiastic staff.

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...

This is a small, cosy youth hostel which is totally self catering. The ladies in charge were friendly and helpful. The hostel was clean and tidy. It is well located in Wells next the Sea. Very easy to walk to the centre of town and also easy short distance to a well stocked Coop supermarket. Easy access to local bus...

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...
