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.

    We loved the staying at this hostel. Really nice staff, free coffee and tea (with oat milk to choose!!) all day, clean rooms with bedsheets included in the price, a lot of light and a very nice inside terrace. They played movies and music at night. It was very well located and the only thing was that the bathrooms weren't that clean, but it's normal when there's a lot of people sharing them. Super recommended!

    We had a decent size private room for the 4 of us with lockers in the room too. The bathrooms were a good size but weren't particularly clean and there aren't enough on each floor. The corridors echo a lot so it's very noisy at night whenever doors are shut or someone walks down the corridor. The bar area downstairs was really nice with relatively cheap drinks and the free tea and coffee was great. Perfect location too, right in the middle of all the main attractions.

    Absolutely perfect! Everyone I met here were lovely and it’s in a good walking location to the lower half of Berlin. Public transport is slightly tricky to catch but it works out in the end

    Great hostel if you just want somewhere to stay at night! Breakfast was ok, feel like they could try a bit more considering the price (5€). Good location and easy access to subway, staff were friendly! The rooms were not very clean and same with the bathrooms/showers. Felt risky to leave bags at luggage storage because there were no locked room, you just put the bags in the reception with a padlock so anyone who feels like it could come in and take your belongings.

    The bar and check in area was nice and the staff are nice. The hostel is a bit run down, showers are mouldy, no soap in the toilets. Quite a lot of the toilets/showers are out of order so you have to wait. Rooms aren’t cleaned and smell kind of weird and the beds are creaky.

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.

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
