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.

I was not made aware of all the facilities when I arrived to check in. For ex. the use of the kitchen and its whereabouts, local maps, bus routes etc., These would have been very useful from day one. Apart from these minor things no other problems.

Die Juhe in Cherbourg ist modern, sauber und die Lage gut. Die Innenstadt und der Hafen liegen in Laufnähe. Das Zimmer war mit Dusche, das WC auf dem Flur. Sie war wenig besucht, was evt. an der nicht ganz so schönen Stadt liegen könnte. Aber es gibt genug schöne Küsten und Gegenden um Cherbourg herum. Die Geschichte des 2. Weltkriegs kann man in diesem Teil der Normandie gut erkunden.
