I highly recommend staying in this hostel while being in Heidelberg. the people are nice, the place is wonderful and clean and it just felt like a home! We've been offered tea and coffee for free and we could sit and chat in the living room. The place is very friendly and i do not regret staying in there!

So somewhere on my way to Heidelberg from Berlin I managed to lose my wallet so there I was in a foreign town with €8 in my pocket. I managed to make it to the hostel and Carmen, who is heaven sent, helped me with calling the bus company I had used to see if I hadn't left my wallet... More

Staying at Lotte was one of the friendliest most incredible experiences we've had staying in a hostel. There is a lot of thought and care put into making this hostel something special and you can tell with the pictures on the wall in the kitchen of the renovation process of the place, that the people who own and run Lotte...

I highly recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Heidelberg. I booked the 6 persons room with shared bathroom. The room is really big, clean and comfortable. The staff is very kind. In the kitchen you will find free tea/coffee and cereals all day.The wifi was fast and easy to connect to in the common room but sometimes was slow in... More

My son and I stayed in a private room with a shared bath. The room was bright and cheerful with good beds. I'm not keen on sharing a bathroom, but this one was just across the hall and always kept clean, so it didn't seem like a hardship. There are two kitchens; the upstairs one is quieter, so I had...

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
