This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Boulogne-sur-Mer.

Boulogne is a smaller city with a big walled central core. Before the construction of the Chunnel, Boulogne saw a large tourist crowd pass through every year via ferry. Although tourism has been reduced, the sights remain the same and are worthy of a visit. As Calais is a fairly sightless town, you may find the short train ride worth it to stay here for the night instead of Calais on your way to or from Britain.

The train station is far outside of all of the attractions, but does have several youth hostels in the immediate vicinity. As Boulogne hostels are clearly limited in number, it is recommended that you stay close to the station and walk into the city. The old walls are remarkably well preserved and impressive, having seen numerous reconstructions over the years to suit the ever changing weapons of war.

Boulogne is fairly quiet and laid back, and you may find yourself wanting to get out and explore. If you do stay here for more than one night and put in the time to research the surrounding area you will find many old defenses used between the French and the British. The people are friendly and welcoming (especially if you take the time to learn a few key French phrases) and can help point you in the right direction.
