It was the first time that I stayed in a hostel in a shared room and it was very good. The first night that was lots of noise, but the other nights were fine. The rooms were clean and spacious. The toilets also clean and always available. Totally recommended to who wants to spend a few days in Berlin. Good...

With just a five minute walk from Fredrichstraße station, it's in a great location. Rooms and bathrooms are clean and the staff very helpful. There's a pool table and a bar in the foyer and a bunch of Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy references all over the place if you know about that. Overall great stay, would go there again

The hostel is located very close to lots of tourist attractions. It is preety clean and the staff is helpfull. Breakfast was ok and with a good price. It is close to a S-Bahn station that connects to Schonefeld Airport. I would recommend the hostel to someone visiting Berlin and wanting to stay in a hostel.

I really enjoyed my stay in this neat downtown hostel. The bar downstairs has a nice atmosphere where you can sip a local drink or you can have breakfast with 5E each morning, also you can opt for a self-cooked meal upstairs in the nicely furnished kitchen. The stall also is helpful and the accomodation as well as the check-out...

My experience at "Heart of Gold" was... I would say... Ok. Not great, but ok. Fulfilled a purpose. Both, bedroom and bathroom were not very cosy, but they looked clean. However there was always a bad smell in the air at my floor. Quiet noisy at night. It was hard to sleep sometimes. The staff was 50/50. Some of them...

Central and well connected to the public transports. The rooms and toilets are clean, and the hostel is full of young and happy people to drink and party with! Very low prices at the bar and nice pool table. Excellent WiFi signal everywhere in the hostel.

We booked a twin room that comes with a shower and a sink, no toilets, and we were satisfied. The room was clean and spacious and the heating system provided a lot of warmth. Although big, the hostel was pretty quiet so we were able to rest well at night. The staff was friendly and welcoming and the all you...

Excellent location (for trains or just walking to the main attractions), good bed, super wifi connection and all for a VERY good price. I'm a female solo-traveler who chose to stay in a 8 bed mixed-bed dorm and I felt it was overall very comfortable, secure and a clean room (even if roommates were not! it was cleaned really quickly...

The structure of the hostel is quite good and they also have a bar inside. If you don't want to go out in the cold, you can chill there with your friends. The position is perfect and you can reach a lot of things just walking. The only negative thing is that when you arrive you don't get a tour...

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
