Hostelworld says

Heart of Gold Hostel is located just off Friedrichstrasse, a short walk to Alexanderplatz, Museum Island, Brandenburg Gate and the Bundestag. This hostel has spacious and clean rooms and a common room which is 'great for meeting other travellers with a game of pool and cheap beers', according to Hostelworld guests, who also say they'd recommend it to friends. We like their colourful and unique murals.

    Fabulous

    I had my own private room here, which was nice and relatively cheap too. It had a shower, but no toilet. What was great is that the shower pressure was good and so was the water temp. I didn’t feel much like socializing, but the crowd there was pretty solid. Everyone seemed to get along and really be enjoying themselves. Location wise, it’s right next to another hostel, and it got kinda loud. I would stay here again. Follow me on Instagram @WhatWhatAndy

    Fabulous

    My standard for hostels have been set very high by having traveled in East Asia. That said, 3 showers and toilets per floor is just too few. Also, people kept entering the showers with shoes on, so inevitably there was mud everywhere. Maybe put a sign asking people to remove their shoes before going to shower to ensure cleanliness. The hostel concept was very fun and the staff very kind, the room were very clean and treated daily. The central location is excellent for visiting many cultural and

Heart of Gold Hostel says

We were really inspired by the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy when we created this hostel. There's a real 'Don't Panic!' backpacker/party atmosphere here. We're in walking distance of almost all sights, like the Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate, Jewish Synagoge, Museums Island, Checkpoint Charlie and more. The famous former artists' squat (now artists' studios) Kunsthaus Tacheles is just 500m from us!
For fun around here we've got a pool table, happy hour in the summer in our beer garden and movies on the big screen in the winter.
Most of our guests are aged 18 to 27 and we cater to people with special needs or disabilities. Tom, Owner/Manager
