I stayed in a six bed room and had a fantastic stay. The price was great. It was very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The common room/bar offered a pool table, tables to eat and drink at as well as computers to use and sofas to relax on. I especially loved the Hitchhikers Guide to the...

My stay at the Heart of Gold Hostel was an overall nice experience. Now, I heard there were huge rooms, but since I stayed with a group, we got to be all together in one room. Overall, I was pretty happy with everything. The price was reasonable considering the location, the 5 euro breakfast was quite fair, the staff was...

Very big spacious rooms, clean hostel, very good staff. Breakfast could have been better (they charge 5€ for it) Good in house bar to meet strangers in the evening. They provide everything but take cash deposit so carry some cash with you

Hostel staff were lovely and helpful, especially when we had a mix up with our rooms. It was situated in a relatively good place close to the centre and near the train station. Toilets were few and far between and often blocked which was not ideal, kitchen was well equipped but there was not enough seating and it got crowded...

This is hostel is really worth! Is well located, the subway station is just at the corner, but if you like walking the hostel is in a strategic point, is just 15 minutes walking to Alexanderplatz or to the Bradenburg gate. With a pool table and serving drinks and beer at night, has a good chill area, perfect to make...

Good hostel great staff good vibe. Only downside was some locks will not work on the lockers. Plus no large locker for storage they are quite small in the room. Booking on their site gets you free breakfast as well. Good lounge area. Aside from the lockers everything was great

A nice hostel with a youthful feel. The street is not particularly appealing, but it is near the Jewish quarter and not too far from Friedrichstrasse Station. Dorms were okay, I've seen worse beds in youth hostel. They give you free towels, a rare commodity in this type of place. The bathrooms, outside the bedroom had a particularly shower and...

We moved from another hostel to hear and we're so glad we did! Loved the set up of the dorm rooms, felt like an apartment having the kitchen attached. Iv seen previous reviews of wifi not being in the rooms but whilst we were there someone seemed to instal something which created an excellent wifi signal throughout the building. The...

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.
