I'm not a big fan of Hostels in general, but this Hostel was surprisingly good. Rooms were clean, staff were friendly and helpful. Bar was really nice.
Definitely recommend for people that like hostels.
Excellent location and comfortable room (4 bed mixed dorm). Ensuite was clean and convenient. The bar had a great atmosphere for meeting fellow travellers. Only took off a rating point as the Wifi did not reach the room. Would stay here again.
5 of us stayed at heart of gold hostel over NYE and we were all impressed. The location is the key to this hostel as it is in walking distance to plenty of attractions and public transport.

I stayed in another hostel at first, way more expensive and Hert of Gold was better in every way.

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.
