    Great breakfast (quality and quantity), which compensates the "member card" fee that you need to pay in order to be able to stay + the extra fee for being over 27 years old. A bit far from the city center, although you can easily reach it by taking bus #32 (2.6 Euros each way).

    Since this was the only hostel in Heidelberg I gave it a try. I was in the shared girls dorm the first night. Another lady was in there and I think she was homeless and had a snored all night long. So the next night I ungraded for 14 euros to my own room and was completely satisfied. If you are going to stay here, spring for the extra money and get a room by yourself or find an air Bnb in town. This hostel is mostly used for the kids playing soccer across the way, so not a twenties/thirties vibe

    This place is rude. Didnt has much of a choice cause it was the only option in Heidelberg in this app. You gotta be a member of their union or something to stay there which cost you more just to get the card. Breakfast is nice. Rooms are low quality

    •There is no wifi in any bedrooms, only the reception area. •There we're only two working lockers in a six bedroom room. •Everthing is extremely basic and sterile. •The receptionist on duty at the time of my stay was no help with anything. •The hostel is extremely overpriced for what it is and you have to pay a 10euro deposit for your key card. •The hostel seemed to be a good bit away from everything worth doing so very long walks/bus rides were in order. •I will never stay here again.
