Stayed for 4 nights in this Hostel and I must admit I was not very satisfied. First of all, the general cleanliness is very poor. Toilets are absolutely disgusting and seem to get only a superficial clean once a day. The rooms are also quite drab and the sheets really seem dirty. One could say "Well, for the price you... More

Bedroom was clean with decent beds and lockers (bring your own padlock). Good bathrooms with very powerful showers! The main selling points have to be the fantastic central location, and the very sociable bar area with good music and cheap drinks! Staff were fun and helpful with a 24 hour reception.

Stayed for 3 nights in the 'Mega Dorm'. This really is as the name suggests as there was around 20 other people staying in that dorm with us at the time. Everyone is very friendly and the staff speak good English which is fortunate, with a 24H reception. WiFi is free and is in the reception/bar area. You can't however... More

Even though the lack of wifi in the room was an hindrance the atmosphere at the reception/bar was amazing were people from different countries just sat together and had an amazing time. Room was really big plus the bathrooms were massive and importantly clean.

Excellent location, couldn't be more central! Rooms were large and clean with pad-lockable lockers for security, and swipe card room access made the hostel feel very safe. We had booked a private room which made us feel particularly secure. We were staying for a sight seeing/beer drinking trip, and whilst the hostel also catered for those there for the nightclub...

The location of this hostel is very central. The dorm rooms are clean and spacious and the beds comfortable. There is a large bar downstairs and an outdoor seating area which is good for those travelling alone. The one down-side is the temperature of the hostel - we stayed in July and the temperature downstairs in the bar was extremely... More

A few years ago I was in Munich for Oktoberfest, and heard some bad things about the hostel I was about to travel too in Berlin, so the day before I left for Berlin I did a last minute search for a new hostel. I looked up Heart of Gold hostel and the email I sent was replied to straight... More

Well the hostel was everything that a hostel could want to be. Spacey rooms, clean, friendly, helpful and a good central location. Stayed for 6 nights, didn't even consider looking anywhere else, staff were able to assist with everything and anything. Only thing is that after 10pm they close the courtyard due to picky neighbours but there is a smoking... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and loved hanging down in the common area. Generally everyone down there is out to make friends and it has a really cool vibe going on. On one night through a staff member was really rude to us. Instead of asking us to just go inside (we were having a cigarette) he intimidated and... More
