The location is good and just below the castle. Staff is helpful and friendly with warm welcome. The environment was clean and tidy. You could sleep well in a quiet night here. I highly recommend this Hostel.

This hostel is great. Very friendly staff, incredible location and very safe. It's minutes walking distance from literally everything and you have a view of the castle. Free breakfast and beds are comfortable. It's quiet so you can actually sleep here. Definitely recommend this place.

Hello and thanks for your great review. Dear future guests, please note that we don´t advertise our "breakfast" as such. It´s just granola, cornflakes, tea, milk and coffee, but - yes - anytime and for free.

The location of the hostel is perfect, its 100 metres from the oldtowns center squre and the path to the castle ruins is close by. The owner is extremely friendly and helped us to find a great place to have a diner. Everything about...

Free chocolate flake cereal, what more can you ask for? But in all seriousness, the location of this hostel is excellent. It is right in the middle of the old town, and you are literally minutes walking time from all the main sights. The owner was very friendly and kind. The hostel itself is cozy and charming, with all the...

Key location in the heart of Heidelberg Altstadt right next door to the cable car climbing to the castle. The property, while obviously far from recently built, has little pretence to look quaint or charming in any way, but it is focused almost purely on being a functional, comfortable place to stay. I can bear witness to the fact that...

Thanks for this great and detailed review! :-) Dear future guests, please note, that taking bus 33 to our hostel is even better than the S-Bahn. The bus leaves from the main trainstation every 20 min. and stops almost in front of our door after a 15 min. ride (and it´s only 1,30 €).

Cozy place, good location, friendly staff. I had a little chat with Carmen(the owner) and she was one of the nicest persone I met! The hostel is close to the Bergbahn bus station and Kornmarkt and it's very easy to find. I'd definitely stay here if I return!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hostel “Lotte” is located in the heart of the Old Town of Heidelberg. You are going to reside in one of the classic mansions of Heidelberg, a dwelling house with a rich tradition. It is situated directly below the castle, by the foot of the castle hill. Our eight guest rooms (there are currently seven of them available) are decorated and furnished in either antique- or retro-fashion style. The classic ambience is surely going to give you the feeling of being taken back to the good old days. ... more   less
