Liked: I liked the atmosphere there and people were really nice. Staff was helpful. Bathrooms and room was cleaned. Just one thing that sometimes WI-FI wasn't good, but in general there was connection. If i would ever go to Berlin i will choose Heart of Gold Hostel.

Liked: Good bar which was always busy with nice atmosphere - great happy hour deals too.Very clean.

Disliked: No kitchen, an essential for many hostel users.Wifi limited to recpetion/bar area, would be better if it reached to rooms too.Perhaps a few more showers per floor would be useful, or at least separate from toilets to avoid traffic jams at peak morning/evening times.

Liked: This places was very inexpensive

Disliked: There were always people smoking or drinking. That is not the kind of atmosphere I enjoy, especially when there are fewer public locations without smokers. There were only 3 toilet stalls per floor to accommodate at least 30 people per floor and there was no semblance of a kitchen or place to prepare your own food.

City break, Sightseeing & culture

Liked: We could take as many towels as we wanted from a cupboard by the reception, at any time. The free coffee was also great, and the breakfast was really good and cost only 4€. The staff was friendly and helpful. I liked that we had our own bathroom in the 6-bed dorm.

Disliked: The room was really unclean, it looked like the floors hadn't been cleaned in 2 weeks (tons of dust everywhere). The mattress was stained (the sheets were clean though) and the walls were dirty. The beds were extremely creaky, so earplugs are a must!
