Carman is a tremendous and friendly hostess. It's her place and she is constantly keeping the place clean. This is a very relaxing 35 bed hostel, not oriented towards those who want to stay up all night to party, but rather, a quiet and friendly oriented hostel for those who enjoy a little relaxation. It is very close to the altstadt market square, and only a short hike to the castle that you could see from the front door. The only odd thing was the bathroom has windows facing the hallway.
Absolutely loved this hostel - very homey and relaxed vibe. Fantastic beds with power and light for reading, great bathroom facilities and kitchen was very well stocked. Staff were really helpful and friendly, though the internet could get a little bit slow and drop out at peak times. Would highly recommend and definitely stay again.
Very clean hostel. Conveniently located in city area, around 15 minute walking distance from Heidelberg Alstadt train station. And it is just beside the funicular train or stairs to Heidelberg Castle. The staff is helpful. Will come back to this hostel if I come back again. Highly recommended.
Great hostel! Carmen at reception is so kind and helpful and the rooms are nice and big with lots of space in the lockers. Great location close to shops and right on the path to the castle. Highly recommend!
awesome spot. lovely homely feel to the hostel. staff were fabulous! female only bathroom was nice. definitely recommend staying here!
the hostel is very close to the castle. the room is nice. my first stay in a dorm but it was a good experience. the cleaned it everyday. they provide milk and cereal all day. otherwise you can book breakfast voucher from the staff one day before. the staffs are nice and friendly.
Such a homey hostel. Has everything you need and more! Its the little things that count and this place has it all. Great location,great facilities, great beds, great showers .. And the staff is so lovely!! Stay here!!!
Everything is good , stuff very nice and location is very good
Quite literally and no exaggeration, the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Located literally opposite the railway up to the castle and a 1 euro bus ride from the main station. Really friendly staff, happy to help with everything. Rooms clean and beds comfy, bathrooms clean and good privacy. Kitchen easily accessible and there was even a free supply of various cereals and tea/coffee. Really great atmosphere - lounge area with tables and sofas and books and board games. And yet great value too. 5*
Always like staying here. Such a great place close to the castle and close to restaurants. Also just steps away from bus stop.
This is a very nice, clean hostel in the exciting old town district. It has a great location and the staff was excellent. She was very helpful.
Really best hostel I have been in ,very clean and quiet ,and Carmen is so nice eand patient ,I will choose to stay next next time .
역에서 내려 버스(1.2유로)를 타고 가야하는 불편이 있지만 호스텔 위치는 아주 좋음,,주인은 정말 독일에서 만난 모든 사람 중에 가장 친절함. 부엌이 쓰기 편리하지만 먹을 공간이 쫌 부족함. 하이델베르크 성 전망대와 철학자의 길을 끝까지 올라가 볼것을 추천함!!! 올라가기 힘들지만 확실히 올라갈 가치가 있음,
It was great location, and service. I'm gonna go here if i have a chance to go to Heidelberg.
Perfect stay here. The location of this hostel is right in the middle of where you need to be in Heidelberg - at the base of the steps to the castle. Staff all excellent and facilities were faultless. Clean, homely and great value for money. 100% recommended.
I've been to about 20 hostels in Europe, in very different countries. This one is by far one of the best. They know what backpackers need (bus timetables, the weather is indicated, restaurant, bars to go, main activities around), the staff is so friendly, always asking if they can do something for us. Nice kitchen, with a dishwasher, a big fridge. A common room vintage, with world maps, books etc... And the location... it cannot be better. Below the castle and next to the Alstadt. Don't hesitate
This is one classy hostel. A+ staff, facilities, and location!
