Heart of Gold Hostel Berlin
Added to my Berlin go-to Hostel list.
Excellent hostel, well run and could not be better positioned.

Great for the first-timers
I left my country to visit Berlin by myself. It was a fantastic experience and I don't regret that I went alone. It was really easy for me to get there from the SXF "flughafen" and once I got to the hostel, I felt really welcome by the staff. Rooms are really OK, bathrooms too. I walked over 50km in 3 days, but that's only because I love doing the sightseeing this way, most of the attractions are really close. If you're not a fan of long walk, the friedrichstrasse station is really close. I loved it

Convenient and clean hostel
This hostel was catered towards student travellers, so we were worried the rooms would be quite noisy at night. The common areas did get a little noisy, but generally after 11pm it was quiet. The rooms were clean and there are lockers provided to keep your belongings safe. The communal bathrooms were quite clean, however, it depended on who lived in the hostel at the time (we were lucky as everyone seemed to keep the common areas clean).

Clean hostel in good location
We stayed in a private room with ensure shower room. The room was large, clean and quiet but could have been warmer. The bathroom was clean and the shower powerful. Location was great for sightseeing although not so good for bars in the evening. Overall good value for the money.

Sleep not guaranteed
Great central location. Staff really friendly and helpful. Down side was that some other residents came home very late and noisy. Then again I am old and they have every right to enjoy life to the full. I would definitely stay again next time I visit Berlin.
