I was at heart of gold for 5 days with my 3 friends. Downstairs in the lobby there were always interesting people. The backyard is lovely, I only wish it had been warmer. The rooms are very quiet and nice.

I stayed here for 3 days and 2 nights. It's located very strategically, u can easily reach Friedrichstrasse and the Orienburgerstrasse. Everything is on walking distance. They also have a very cool bar at the reception with pool table haha. Theres alot restaurants nearby, i love a particular indian restaurant nearby but i forgot the name of the restaurant.

Very good location.The hostel is located on a quiet side street but walk to the end of the road and you are on a main street. One street over there are tons of restaurants. Located right near metro stop. The sheets had some stains, I think just old stains from the coils of the mattress based on where they were... More

The hostel is in a very calm street, but in an area full of bars,... the common room is itself quite nice and stays open very late. The rooms are clean and not too noisy. The staff is friendly, although a bit slow (especially for check in). The breakfast is ok, it costs 4€ (all you can eat). I recommend!... More

Everything was clean and well maintained. Location is very close to city center. Staff was helpful even when it was really busy. Their 6-bed dorms are very spacious, plenty of toilet facilities, etc. Common room wifi was pretty good. I recommend it to anyone going to Berlin, and I would definitely stay there again.

It was a very nice stay, that was easy to book, and easy to prolong when I had to stay a littler longer. The people were nice, and the Internet on the PCs at the bar was free. I would stay there again.

Great place to stay, in the city center close to Alexanderplatz and Reichstag building, with helpful staff, comfortable beds, clean showers. If you are coming to Berling by car, you can easily leave your car in the parking near hostel.

For approx €10pppn, we can't complain about this place. Beds were comfy, hostel was clean, showers were hot, plenty of facilities and a tea/coffee set up for you to help yourself after a long day of sightseeing in Berlin. Wifi was temperamental, room was boiling hot and not the hostel's fault but we had the loudest snorer going! grrr! 2... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center 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 neighborhood’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.
