Liked: The only good thing that I can recommend is the location.

Disliked: No wifi on the fourth floor. Having to go downstairs and sitting on the sofa of the lobby if you want to use the internet! Small lobby for checking-in and sitting .No kitchen is provided even there is a big area for the bar! Even I lived on the fourth floor, I could clearly listen the voice of the party on the ground floor until 4 A.M.. No individual socket for a bed. You have to use the socket of another bed if you want to recharge batteries of your camera and mobile phone on the next day. The locker of the bed room is really really really small. The key hole of locker is really strange. Not all the type of lock can apply. The worst hostel I chose on my euro trip when comparing with other seven hostels (including price and all the stuff!). I was even to be flirted by a drunk man on the street of the hostel at 9pm. It was so dangerous.The hostel really brought me so many bad feelings! SO, THINK TWICE BEFORE SELECTING THIS HOSTEL.

Liked: Staff was really friendly and helpful. The breakfast for additional 4Euros is really worth it and not too expensive at all. With the "Hackesche Märkte" and "Alexanderplatz" being in walking distance , I would always go back there. Plus there are lot's of restaurants and cafe's close by. Was very happy I stayed there.

Liked: The Heart of Gold Hostel is in one of the best locations if you're wanting to explore the majority of Berlin. The room I stayed in (8 bed mixed) was spacious and clean with a locker per bed and an extension lead for charging. There was always a bathroom free and th hostel felt very safe.The free coffee is a bonus.

Disliked: The wifi isn't great.
