Hunstanton Backpackers & YHA - Norfolk Coast

Updated Family friendly rooms and Covid safe guest Kitchen

December 17th 2020

Hunstanton Backpackers with grant help from @newanglialep have updated the guest kitchen to provide 2 safe prep and cooking area’s and have added King / twin beds to create large family rooms

We have been busy making some changes (Full details and pictures are on our website).   The Kitchen has had screens added to separate it into 2 areas with the addition of a sink, brand new cooker and fridge freezer to each area, meaning that subject to covid restrictions we can rent out each half of the house separately and each set of guests will have an isolated kitchen area.

We have removed a bunk bed from 3 of the rooms and added twin beds that make up into a king size. This means the adults can sleep in comfort in a traditional bed with the children enjoying the option of top or bottom bunk. We can now offer a double bed in room sizes of 2,3,4,6 or 8. All will either be en-suite or have a private WC and shower room. That now gives us 6 rooms with double/king bed and 8 rooms with private or ensuite WC/shower rooms.

The 5 day Xmas break is still available and allowed even after todays announcements.

We are greatful to New Anglia LEP and Growth Hub for their financial support towards this project.

We look forward to welcoming guests back soon, enquiries welcome based on a 4 night stay for Xmas and a sole use booking.


We’re good to go @ Hunstanton Backpackers

July 23rd 2020

We are open after Visit England Good to Go certification and YHA compliance and training. There is a change in our customer offering to ensure everyone has a safe stay.

This year we will be mainly offering group only options with a good value option for smaller groups.   You can book at a reduced rate  of £400/night based on a minimum of 2 nights with a discount available for longer stays.  We hope this option gives families and key workers the chance to get away with another household bubble and enjoy the spacious Victorian building and the fantastic Norfolk coastline with the beach only a few minutes walk away.

All rooms will have an en-suite or private bathroom, the seating in the lounge and dining room have been spaced out and we will carry out additional cleaning with anti viral products suitable for killing covid 19.  Later in the year, but only in line with government policy, we hope to again have full house and bigger groups stay.  We look forward to your enquiry and providing more details catered to your stay.
