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.

You can tell the owners/staff really care about their business. Everything was clean and well laid out, and we just got great service the whole time we were there. It's a great location to walk around the city and a close walk to the stairway to heaven hike/climb you can do on the mountain. The free wifi also worked very... More

My wife and I stayed here on our first few nights in Heidelberg. We were welcomed in with big smiles. The service was fantastic, efficient and friendly. Our room was very clean and spacious. We were up on the 3rd level. The rooms had no private bathrooms but there were 2 on the same level and there was never a... More
