This was my first time stopping in a hostel and it was absolutely fantastic, really clean rooms/shower facilities and great atmosphere in the downstairs bar. On top of that it was really cheap and in a great location

When we first arrived to check in, they couldn't put us all in the same room even though a confirmation Email was sent to us confirming we would be in the same room. Once we argued it, they said they couldn't do anything. We looked online for another hostel to stay in amd told them the reason we chose the... More

Loved the way the hostel was Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy themed - made me ridiculously happy. Centrally located. The staff were really helpful and the bar cheap and cheerful. Our room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were reasonably clean (strangely more male bathrooms than female on the second floor?). Really lively and chill atmosphere on... More

The hostel is in a great location (central Mitte District), with good public transport links, and walking distance from plenty of drinking and dining areas. The staff were helpful, especially when suggesting places for us to see off the beaten track. Inside, the rooms are exactly what you'd expect from a hostel, but there are nowhere near enough toilets and... More

Love Berlin and this place is a great spot to rest up. Near the train stations and city centre, lots of things to do nearby. The bar is loaded with beer, some table and chairs and outdoor seating. The megadorm was surprisingly quiet, given there were about 40 of us in there.

The room and location were great. The wifi worked really well and the bar/lounge area was a really nice chill place to come back to. Very friendly and respectful staff! The rooms were really nicely designed. Linen was provide for a deposit. We didn't have time to explore the city but they had inexpensive bike rentals and also tours.

We had a really nice time! Location is great, employees are nice, it's clean and the coffee is free! The beds were fine and the pricing is perfect. The shared area downstairs is great to hangout, there's movies playing, more then enough place to sit and a pool table. It's also possible to rent bicycles wat due to the location... More

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.

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.
