The hostel was closed on arrival and because of TdF wasn't to open until later at 7pm. The main reason we cycled to Cherboug was to see it but needed to wash and be ready. VERY INFLEXIBLE AND SURELY IF TdF WAS VISITING YOU WOULD BE OPEN ALL DAY. NEVER AGAIN

Attic in the room I stayed in was great. Breakfast could have been better.

I arrived within the evening opening hours but had to wait in the courtyard before anyone arrived. Then, though I had made a reservation, paying a deposit, the staff person said she could not find my reservation and I was charged the full price again. Rooms were clean, but the kitchen lacked basics like a knife for cutting veggies or bread - fortunately I had brought my own. I had to leave before breakfast was served so I can't comment on that.

I only have good memories for the one night I spent in Cherbourg's Youth Hostel. The staff was very friendly and considerate, either on the phone prior my arrival or at the reception desk on site. The premises are a former military building but you hardly guess it! I found the buildings neat and clean, practical and well equipped. The kitchen is in a separate building, functional and tidy. They also have a big room for breakfast and another one for relaxing. My bedroom had its own shower too.
