great staff and value


Locker was small for me, but shower room was really clean and looked new. Staffs are kind, kitchen was good, and location was perfect. It's really close to the train station.


Too expensive for the location.


Close to the train station rather than the old town. The showers and rooms are OK. Breakfast is very good for 3€. There is a gym next door (unafilliated).


Everything was perfect the only problem was they accepted a person who seems homeless and junkie, it was no funny being around him, there was a guy who changed his room because of him. If I were working in that hostel I would not have accepted him not only for the risk of the guests but also for my own safe.


The room was very clean and the staff were really friendly!! If you are staying for short trip then it's an ideal place cuz the train station is super close to the hostel.


The staff was very friendly and knowledgable. Right by the train and bus station and easy walking distance to the center of town


Value for money, very close to the station and convenient.


Excellent location. Staff are nice and helpful.


Internet very annoying to navigate. Could not be relied upon. Showers were clean and appreciate the water conservation approach, but found it quite a short burst of temperamentally temperatured water. Apart from that 2/10 would not bang.


The rooms stank, literally. The entire time we were there the hostel smelled like sour milk. This may not bother some people but it drove me crazy.


The room is good, and the staffs are really friendly. but the shower room is not good. I'm a long hair girl. I cannot using a shower which have to push every 10 seconds. the water also do not hot enough for me. So I just can not take a shower in this two days >

Lovely hostel in Heidelberg. Close to the station and just a bus/tram ride away from the city centre. Definitely worth the stay.


This was a very nice and comfortable hostel. We booked it the day of and there were no problems, very easy to find in the city. It's a good location, right next to the bus and train line and only a 20 min walk into the old town where all the shopping and bars are. A little disappointed with their breakfast as you have to pay 3 euro for it, fresh fruit is all it needs.


Very close to the train station, but a bit of a walk to the centre. Spacious and nice decorated and painted floors and rooms. Clean and bright kitchen. Internet access in all rooms.


Pretty good hostel, with perfect location near the station, 20 minute walk to the main tourism places, helpful staff and clean kitchen and bathroom. They have satisfying wifi.


Located close to the main Heidelburg station, but a bit of a walk to the Old Town and all the attractions. Area can be a bit loud at night. Hostel itself is fine, but the metal beds do squeak.


So nice! Huge kitchen, pretty comfortable beds, and good atmosphere. For three euro the breakfast was definitely worth it (nothing too fancy, but a big spread). Very easy to get to; it's a straight shot from the train station. This does mean, however, that you're far away from the city center and will have to walk a long way or take the bus to get to the tourist spots. If I come back to Heidelberg, I'd definitely stay here again!


Excellent hostel! Place is a bit shady (it's in the upper floors of a not that well-lit building), but safe nonetheless. The staff were really hospitable and accommodating! The hostel really did have a "hostel" vibe, with a common kitchen, lounge, showers (split for men and women of course). There were computers for use and wifi works everywhere. The hostel was also really clean!


Steffi's was clean and the kitchen well stocked. When I had a problem staying in a dorm with someone who was very ill the staff were very kind and helpful in changing my reservation to a different room for the rest of the stay. The location is very convenient, just moments away from the main station and in close walking distance of supermarkets and public transport.
