Really good hostel. Stayed in the 42 man mega room which was more like 3 10-15 people rooms with shared toilets. Plenty of toilets and showers for all the 42, male and female and they worked great and were cleaned every day. Bed was comfy and rooms were good, only problem was we didn't get wifi in our beds which...

If you want a central located hostel while staying in Berlin, Heart of Gold is for you. It very close to multiple different train lines, and is about a 15 minute walk from the Teirgarden. Be aware that if you are above the 2nd floor, you will not have wifi in you room. This was not made known prior to...

The hostel is placed in an excellent location. The room was a little pricey considering the number of beds, but the location more than compensates for that. Recommended to anyone who needs a good room in the middle on Berlin and doesn't want to pay hotel prices.

We stayed here for 4 nights and had a whale of a time. Great facilities including a kitchen, beer garden, common space and very good wifi. The people were also great apart from our room mates (#guttenbergguttenberg #2spanishtwins #oldman) The staff were easy going and the bar was hopping 24/7 We would highly recommend the Heart of Gold for any...

There's little to fault about this hostel. We had a fabulous four person room that was really spacious, a huge private bathrooms and shower and even our own balcony. I'm not sure if all rooms are like this or if we were just lucky but it was such good value for money. They have an outdoor area with seating and...

I personally didn't enjoy the location, the only thing it was relatively close to is the Hackescher market and even that is about 15 minutes walk. There are some nice shops and restaurants nearby but that is not why I personally went to Berlin. If I go back, I will probably choose to stay in Kreuzberg as it had a...

Facilities were clean and staff were friendly and helpful if you asked. There were groups of young people staying while I was there and it was difficult to meet people in the bar area unless you put in the effort. No wifi in the bedrooms, and breakfast was pretty expensive for what they offered. Great location!

Excellent! Simple, nice kitchen, bar gets lively each night. Upstairs where the rooms are located is quiet. A good combination of modern facilities and social atmosphere. Only downside is drinks were not that cheap, but it is Berlin.

Location was perfect, close to Museum Island and two very convenient metro stops. Was in a 6-person room and was great! I recommend the size. Breakfast was good, receptionists helpful and friendly! You can check out travel books too if you like. Wifi didn't work in the room, but I prefer that actually (get everything done before going back to...

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.
