Liked: Really nice hostel, great common room, rooms and beds were good. Really good deal for the little money. I enjoyed my stay and would recommend it to other travelers! The location is super centrally, everything can be reached by foot, subway is 200 ft. away.

Disliked: Safes couldn't be locked!!! Need for a special lock which wasn't provided, safes could be opened although locked! Staff was friendly, however I wished for a bit more information on what to see in Berlin. That didn't bother much.

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.
