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 cheap beers’, according to Hostelworld guests, who also say they’d recommend it to friends. We like their colourful and unique murals.

As I was sitting in the couches by the waiting area in the morning, a group of guests tried to cross the barrier which was put up for cleaning. Instead of handling this professionally, the staff member screamed at these guests, cursed at them, and said really unhinged things like “what if my mom had committed suicide on the street? Then what would you do?” Seemed like an unstable employee. He then followed them outside to scream at them more. Not saying they didn’t do anything wrong, but the employee’s beha

Do yourself a favour and don't stay here. The staff is incredibly rude. There's 0 atmosphere–don't be fooled by the bar, no one's ever there. Not that I'm surprised, the staff doesn't make you feel welcome at all. They hardly clean the rooms and bathrooms. No laundry service and no kitchen–COVID or not, it's totally closed; you only have access to a fridge, plates, and cutlery. There's a perfectly nice hostel 3 minutes away, go to that one!

I loved this place, it was my favourite hostel in Berlin and I’ve stayed at many. I met so many cool people and the location was amazing.

Heart of Gold Hostel says

A hostel inspired by the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. We try to cultivate a real backpacker atmosphere, with most of our guests aged 18 to 27. We're within walking distance of many major sights, like the Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate, the New Synagoge, Museum Island, Checkpoint Charlie and more. For fun, we've got our beer garden in summer and movies on our projector in winter. Always remember: Don't Panic!
