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.

    Superb

    10 Oct 2018
    This is one of the best Hostels I've ever stayed in. The atmosphere is really good to meet new people and the staff is helpful and kind. My room and the bathrooms were always clean and they are very spacefull. I was really happy I chose this place to stay, I could do everything by walk cause it's very close to the city center. There's also a lot of restaurants and coffee bars around, and they have a nice breakfast for just 5 euros. Would totally recommend and stay again!

    Superb

    Stayed in the 42 bed dorm, it's not as hectic as it sounds bc the beds are split over a few rooms and they are very spacious. The hostel is run well, good security, facilities, lots of lockers, strong shower, bar and they have a banging breakfast for €5 which sets you up for a huge day of walking around Berlin. It's in a nice/safe + central area with great options for food/bev. Just a heads up, there isn't a mouse problem at the hostel - the bunks are just super squeaky!

    Great atmosphere and located right next to the tram and metro. Staff were always friendly and helpful too. If there's one complaint it's that my duvet had abit of a weird odour. It wasn't a big deal for me so I didn't ask for a change.

    Nothing really bad or good to say about this hostel - it was okay. Breakfast was worth the 5€ and happy hour had 1€ beers. No laundry and bathrooms were pretty dirty. It was very basic.

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
