Found that out too today, in Section 8.4 of the Hurd installation quide:

8.4 The Hurd console
Besides the Mach console you encountered during installation, the
GNU/Hurd features a powerful user-space console providing virtual
terminals. Currently, you have to start the Hurd console manually with
the following command:

# console -d vga -d pc_mouse --repeat=mouse -d pc_kbd --repeat=kbd -d generic_speaker -c /dev/vcs

Inside the Hurd console, you can switch between virtual terminals via
ALT+F1, ALT+F2 and so on. ALT+CTRL+BACKSPACE detachs the Hurd console
and brings you back to the Mach console, from where you can reattach
again with the above command.

Does only give garbage using -curses though!
