This is such a cheap way to get into France. On top of that it has a very reasonably priced bar and a canteen with a couple of hot meal options. Even has WiFi, which admittedly is limited but functional for mid crossing. Will use...More

Can't help with the location of the train station, however, I can tell you that the disembarkation is very quick. We were off in about 10 minutes.
