If you need to cancel your booking less than 24 hours in advance and we cannot sell your bed then we will have to take payment from you for the first night of your booking.
No Show: If you don't appear without cancelling, then we will take payment from you for the first night of your booking.

If you need to arrive after 22.00, then you must let us know in advance, we don’t want you to have to sleep under the “Old Bridge” because our door is locked!

Not included are extra cleaning costs (50 – 100€) if the room was left in an extraordinary mess.
At Check-in you will be given keys that will give you 24 hour access to the hostel and your room.
If you lose the keys then you will be asked to pay 50 euro for replacement keys.
In case you booked a dormitory: We expect you to respect your room mates and allow them space, peace and tranquillity! We allow only one person per bed and no strangers in the hostel!

Group of 15 or more traveling to Heidelberg?
Map and Directions
By Car: Take highway A5 from south (Freiburg/Basel) or north (Frankfurt), exit Heidelberg. Follow the signs to 'Altstadt/Schloss' (oldtown/castle), then follow the directions for parking deck 13. That's where you can park the car (16 €/24 hours). Or park in P11 for 2,50 € over night or 12,50 €/24 hours (7 minutes to walk). Free parking is tricky in Heidelberg. We let you know about the possibilities on request.
From the main station by bus: Take bus No 33 (exit North) towards 'Koepfel/Ziegelhausen'. This line takes you straight to Lotte in about 15 minutes (leaves every 20 minutes during the day) for 1,30 €. Your stop is 'Rathaus/Bergbahn' after a 15 minutes ride. It's only about 50 meters to 'Lotte' from there. Look left after you got off the bus. You´ll see a cobblestone path which leads up to the castle. There it´s the 2nd house on the left. You can't miss it. Note: We don´t have a big sign - don´t walk up too far.
