This is such an amazing hostel with a cosy living room and communal kitchen which will make anyone feel at home. This created the perfect atmosphere for meeting other travellers and relaxing in the evening after exploring this beautiful university town. All the staff I encountered were super helpful and really made me feel listened to and unafraid to ask for anything which was brilliant especially for a solo traveller.

This is the coziest hostel I have ever been. Surrounded by buildings in the old town of Heidelberg, the well-decorated living room, the guitar, the stamps on the map and the sofa embodied every imagination about a perfect hostel where you could rest physically and psychologically. The hostess Carmen is incredibly friendly, we had a very pleasant talk and she kindly allowed me to stay until very late the night I left. I would definitely like to stay there again given any chances going back. Thanks a lot Carmen!

Lotte was fantastic in every way. We were in a prime location, without all the hustle and bustle that usually comes along with being situated in the centre of town. Heidelberg itself is a gem, but Lotte was essential to our fantastic experience here, with a living room, balcony, guitars, games, books, and free coffee, tea & cereal you’d be dead wrong not to stay here! Your belongings will be kept safe as you get a complimentary locker and a room key. We ended up making great friends with our roommates to the point where we almost felt like we had an AirBNB but within a community of some incredibly friendly locals. Thanks Carmen and the rest of the team!

This is without question the best hostel I have stayed in. Carmen (the hostess) is dedicated to her craft and works hard to create an amazing environment. And she succeeds!
Great location in Alt Stadt, walking distance to the castle, philosophenweg, and a supermarket. The rooms are clean and quiet, the kitchen is well equipped with free, delicious, coffee, tea, and cereal. The other guests I met were fantastic - instant friends - and were similarly impressed with the place. I hope I can come back soon!

Location is near lift to castle and walking street,
major square of the city.
.Bus from train station stops 10 metres from hostel.

But on the way back ,because of one way street,
you have to walk about 300 metres to catch the bus.

Room is simple and clean for hostel.
Bathroom and toilet is clean.
Small common area with good facilities is lovely.
The staff is very helpful.

Thank you Narong, for your kind words! We are happy that you had a good time here. Future guests please note: Due to roadworks our convenient bus back to the train station starts operating at 9:09 in the morning. It will change back to earlier hours sooner or later. Take care, Carmen
