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...

I was sick, with coughs and every cough squeaked all the litter. The sheets a little old. In general good service, daily cleaning of rooms and bathrooms. Good for a couple of nights. I liked the common area, with music and good atmosphere. The location is very central, I find it difficult to find it the first time but is...

We stayed for two nights at the Heart of Gold Hostel and it was a good experience. We booked the Mega Dorm which has 42 beds but it is divided in two rooms and they let us choose the one with 11 beds. It was amazingly clean and the bathrooms were very good. The only thing I missed was a...

I'm not a big fan of Hostels in general, but this Hostel was surprisingly good. Rooms were clean, staff were friendly and helpful. Bar was really nice. Definitely recommend for people that like hostels.

Excellent location and comfortable room (4 bed mixed dorm). Ensuite was clean and convenient. The bar had a great atmosphere for meeting fellow travellers. Only took off a rating point as the Wifi did not reach the room. Would stay here again.

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
