We stayed 3 nights at this hostel and even tough we booked shared room for 6 pax for the first two nights we were alone. Tasty breakfast for 5 euros, perfect location, clean rooms. The only thing that we didn't like that there was no place to prepare your own food. Or at least we didn't notice one :)

Loved staying in Berlin at Heart of Gold. All the staff were really cool, the bar is great, and the guests were all awesome. Good location and the price was very reasonable. 100% would stay again. Can't ask for more.

Double room with private bathroom was big, modern and clean. Perfect location and really good atmosphere. Breakfast was nice, costs five euros extra but it is worth it. Mattress and pillow could be more comfortable, but otherwise no issues. I highly recommend this hostel!

Great and helpful staff, very good location, free coffee and tea all day, good breakfast for 5 euros. Renting bikes is possibly and recommend. Bathroom was usually dirty and had to wait to take a shower.

This is in a good location, near to the Bundestag and loads of good places to eat. The breakfast is relatively cheap and has a lot of options. We really enjoyed the general vibe of the hostel, the staff and guests were really friendly and the whole atmosphere was lively. It was all very clean and by far the nicest...

Super cool vibe here. Very social and outgoing. With all the common areas and the 24/7 bar it just felt like a constant party. I came here alone but always had company during my 3 day stay. All the logistical stuff was tip top also.

I came in at night, not expecting much, but the place was full of life! I got one out of eight beds in a shared room in the 4th floor, and all my roommates where awesome. I had a great stay, and would definitely come again :)

The 32 dorm is indeed 4 separate 8-bed dorm room behind a main door, so it is quite nice indeed. And the staff are friendly and helpful. My string lock is not functioning so I have to break it by force. The staff are so helpful in finding me the right tool!

We had a 4 beds room. The whole hostel is very clean; each floor has 3 male and 3 female bathrooms, which are cleaned regularly. The rooms are pretty spacious, but some beds missed desirable things, such as a lamp or a good amount of power sockets. The hostel staff is kind and could provide us every information we needed...

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
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.
