Awesome location!


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.


A wonderful place with a wonderful staff!!!!


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.

Thanks for your comment that we are not a party hostel. Wished more people would read it before they book! :-)


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.
