Good located hostel in Heidelberg old town. You can easily walk to all tourist attraction. Lotte - The Backpackers is next to Bergbahn (Tram up to Heidelberg castle), just take bus no. 33 for 15 minutes at the train station (Hauptbahnhof) to Heidelberg - Rathaus Bergbahn. Clean and comfortable room with lockers and a mirror in the room. This is... More

Extremely well located (in terms of being in the old town) backpackers - nice and friendly staff as well. We were on the top story so you get a bit of noise from people going up and down the stairs but it had access to free breakfast and looked to have all you'd need for a backpackers

I was traveling solo, and Lotte's was like a home away from home. Comfortable, affordable, well decorated, spotlessly clean bathrooms/showers (with some hairdryers/soaps/etc to use for free!), super friendly staff. I honestly can't rave enough about how impressed I was by this place. Walking distance to everything you want to see in Heidelberg (right at the bottom of the castle).... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in September with 3 other travel companions. We booked all 5 beds in the 5 bed dorm, even though there were only 4 of us. The hostel is centrally located right below the Schloss and very close to the old bridge. There is very easy access to the castle, old town, church, old bridge... More

Very good location for visiting the old town in Heidelberg as it's just next to the bus station and the tram up to the castle. The staffs are very helpful, rooms and all facilities are clean. There's even a very big bathroom for females only. Kitchen are well equipped with free cereal, milk, tea and coffee offered. The living room... More

This is probably one of the nicest hostels whatsoever. Carmen is unbelievably friendly and patient and we are really grateful for her help and advices. The hostel itself is clean and well maintained. The common room and kitchen is full of books, games and other little things that will make you want to stay there forever, but the location is... More

My husband and I stayed in a private room at Lotte's and it was perfect! Both the room and shared bathroom were very clean and large. We chose Lotte because of all the good reviews and because of the location at the foot of the castle. The reviews were all correct - this is an awesome hostel!!! And to stay... More

The Lotte Hostel exceeded our expectations in every way possible! A quick bus ride from the main train station, less than 1 minute walk to the Hostel from the bus stop, and a very friendly greeting to the Hostel from the staff.... who could ask for more? The rooms were well decorated (with themes) and extremely clean- they looked so... More

I arrived after reception closed, but the Lotte staff sent me an email prior to my stay outlining how check in would work, and when i arrived i had a detailed map pointing me to my room. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms large and everything was extremely clean. Hard to ask for better.
