The hostel is very cozy and feels like a home. Very close to the castle which is gorgeous but a far walk from the train station. Overall a very pleasant stay. Carmen is amazing and gave me great suggestions of what to do in Heidelberg! Thank you :)
One of my favourite hostels in Europe! Location couldn't be better - right in the heart of Heidelberg!! Staff were friendly and willing to go out of their way to make my stay pleasant. Strong wifi connection throughout the hostel, bathroom and kitchen were always kept impeccably clean. Cereal and coffee is complimentary. Great communal room and overall great vibe. Highly recommended. Thanks to the staff for a great stay.

Lotte was my best ever hostel experience so far! Host is incredible! Rooms are spacious and clean! Convenient location! we arrived on New year eve and the host offered us free dinner party and games, was great and fun!! would definitely recommend this hostel to others!
The best experience I have ever have! Love the dorm room interior design and thanks for the help of the nice staff! The location is in the old town and very convenient for the nearest attractions, but a bit far from the station, anyway luckily there's a bus stop just next to the hostel.
The hostel was very helpful and lovely. I had a great time.
Carmen is very welcoming and friendly. The location is SUPERB. The hostel is quaint and homely.

Located right in the middle of the old town. Perfect location. Quick walk to the castle. Even closer to the Christmas Markets. Rooms were comfortable and clean. The entire place had character. Bathroom was also spacious and clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. If you're planning on staying in Heidelberg, you can't beat this place.
So nice place to live!! Thank you so much for leaving me a sweet memory in Heildburg!

The Staff is the best. There isn't any one better in the hostels world.. Amazing!
As always Lotte was quiet, clean, and friendly.
Really good place to stay in Heidelberg. It takes some time from train station, but really easy to get there. Also, almost every sightseeings in Heidelberg are exist near hostel. Staffs are really kind and helpful.
Great location and felt secure. Friendly staff. Kept very clean.
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!
