the German Naginata Federation (DNagB) reserved a number of rooms/beds at a youth hostel in
Wiesbaden. The hostel is quite close to the sport shall where the WNC, the goodwill tournament,
the seminars and also the exams will take place.
The rooms reserved differ in size and number of beds. But, as for every German youth hostel, there
are NO single bed rooms. We will try to distribute the people of the same country into the same
rooms. But there is no guarantee. Maybe you will share a room with a Naginata-ka you don‘t know
already. That‘s your chance to make new friends.
Adress of the youth hostel (Jugendherberge): Blücherstrasse 66 – 68, 65195 Wiesbaden
If you like to stay at the youth hostel, please note the following information:
The beds cost you 35 Euro per person per night. This price includes several extra fees, which are
requiered by the youth hostel. Also the reserved rooms can only be booked for the whole time of
