Has anybody stayed at the Robert Reme hostel in Caen? I'm hoping to stay in Caen at Easter & and am wondering what the hostel is like. Also does anybody know if it's easy to get to from the Ferry port?
There is a shuttle service that is only there for arrivals of the ferries. Otherwise there is a bus service from Ouistreham centre - Caen - Ouistreham everyday run by Bus Verts to and from the Caen railway station with, of course other stops in-between. You'll need to consult the site as there are so many buses and so many times. You're looking for the "Ligne no.1" on www.busverts.fr/_hiver/ and then "Vos horaires".In a box to the right it's indicated "trouvez vos horaires par ligne". Click to get the drop down window and then Ligne 1 "NOT Ferry Service, there's nothing there" and you'll get another drop down window with the Caen in and out timetables.
Worse comes to the worst a taxi costs between 25 - 40euros depending on time of day. Hope all this helps.
