Heart of Gold Hostel
Ranked #13 of 357 Specialty Lodging in Berlin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 22, 2006

I and two friends stayed at the Heart Of Gold hostel on our independent trip to Berlin and Paris this year.

Our room was clean and bright and the bathrooms to a satisfactory standard (ie clean but wet floors - definitely not a big problem)

also - in a VERY good location. Johanisstrasse leads onto Friedrichstrasse - with its S-Bahn AND U-Bahn stations and also v. close to Orienbergstrasse which has lovely restaurants.

On arriving at the hostel the staff were friendly and efficient and even let us use the bathrooms and lockers, despite it being a few hours 'til check-in opened.

The hostel itself is perfect for young travellers and is decorated in true Douglas Adams style (it's probably worth reading 'The Hitch-hiker's Guide To The Galaxy' before you go - if only to understand why there are whales painted on the walls)

bar serving alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and nice outside area for drinking them in (although this could be a drawback at night when others stay outside and you are trying to sleep - not a terrible problem though). secure rooms and nice atmosphere. I'd definitely recommend it!!

Reviewed June 20, 2005

This hostel was recommended by my brother and our friends who went to Berlin before me. I stayed there between the 17th-20th of June 2005. Centrally located and within 5-7min walk from Friedrichstrasse station, this hostel is value for money and value for comfort!

It's clean, there's internet access provided (you even get refunded for the amount leftover on your internet ticket), enough bathrooms to go around, a pool table and bar at the ground floor. The people and staff are generally very friendly. It's been a joy staying there.

Highly recommended.
