“Big and well-organised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

I stayed here for 2 nights in a multiple room with 5 beds. It's situated close to the river. The breakfast available for 3 euro is a modest continental breakfast. However, you can eat without limits! I appreciated that after checkout you can leave the luggage free at the reception.

A lot of space in the dormitory room, nice lounge, clean showers and toilets and very close to the railways station which is a huge plus for people coming by train (old town is a 20 minute walk but you can do that next to the river with a nice view).

The hostel is in good location which is few minutes walk from the main train station but it's quite far from the city centre. Some of the staffs are very nice but some are normal. I had a great memories with this hostel so far.

We stayed in May 2014 in a 10 bed dorm

In short: good stay and best things are the free bikes!!

The hostel is very bright and clean. It makes you feel comfortable and invites also to spend time in the common rooms. The reception is friendly and helpful but not very proactive in explaining/providing tips - just ask!

The room was spacious, good mattress, some nice furniture and with lockers (need to bring padlock. However, the air stayed hot during night, there was no ventilator in our room. There are in other rooms we found out next day - so makes sense to ask. When opening the windows there was noise from the club on the other side of the street. No deal for us but others did not like it so windows were kept closed..

The sanitary rooms are sparkling clean. So is the kitchen. Common room is OK but not much used it seems. Breakfast for 3€ is Ok. Nothing special but fair price.

There are some bikes for free. Really the best for us!! You deposit money and can have them all day. The bikes are very well maintained; gears good, brakes & light perfect.

Just note that it is no real backpacker hostel. It lacks the atmosphere. But still we met nice people at breakfast and in general everything was really good. We recommend staying there and we'd come back.

This hostel is well located, less than a five minute walk away from the main train station. The hostel itself takes up two floors of a large brick building- and it is family friendly. Rooms are very clean and well decorated. Staff is very helpful, pointing things out on the map and giving you suggestions. The hostel also has a very large kitchen, full of plates, cups, etc. The hostel is a walk aways from the main center of town- about fifteen or so minutes- but the walk is quite nice. The hostel is reccommended, especially since it is one of the only hostel options in the city!

Steffi's Hostal might be a little tricky to find at first, then you realize how easy it is to get there. The hostal in front of Heidelberg's main station which makes it a great option for travelers that get to the city by train or bus and also to connect with the old part. It has a lot of rooms, it is clean, and the atmosphere is great too. A great option when visiting Heidelberg!
