Positive Reviews

A good place to meet people

The bar at Heart of Gold Hostel Berlin has a fantastic atmosphere and serves reasonably priced drinks. It's good to hang out there and make new friends. Similarly, there are other areas within the hostel to chill out and talk to people.

A good morning meal

You can get a pretty inexpensive breakfast at this establishment and it is available until quite late in the morning, meaning you don't have to get up early to take advantage of it.

Good customer care

The staff here are really nice and make sure that everything is set up for a good stay. There are decent sized lockers available and the guestrooms are kept clean. If you need tips on the local area, then you only have to ask one of the hostel's receptionists and they will happily give you some handy information.

Negative Reviews

The internet doesn't stretch

If you want to take advantage of the Wi-Fi at Heart of Gold Hostel Berlin, you might not be able to do so from the comfort of your bed, as the connection isn't always strong enough. You may find that you have to head to the reception to get online.

Expect noise

As is generally the case with hostels, it is rare to get an undisturbed night's sleep here. In the bigger dorm especially, people tend to come and go until all hours. Some of the doors are quite creaky and noise can also travel down the corridors. The bar gets quite loud at times as well.

Bathroom issues

There aren't a huge amount of bathrooms available and, with the number of people using them, they can sometimes get a little unclean by the end of the day.
