..I need a new sleeping bag and look for 0 c goose down sleeping bag. Just wondering if anybody know about sleeping bags here and have bought Hyke,Timberbrother or Naturhike? They are the most affordable brand I found so far...I don't know goose down can get so expensive but really need somthing compact and light..Any suggestion please?

You are better off just going to rei or whatever. There are so many brands that you will get just as many good advices. Between april-october go for a thin light one. The temperature thing is not that important in that period.

I bought a Yeti down sleeping bag which weighs only 300 gr and you reduce it to very small volume in its stuffing bag. Found it on the Globetrotter site: https://www.globetrotter.de/

It is quite thin, but you shake it up/out as usual for the downs to go back to their usual volume - suitable for 3 seasons.

I have a Big Agnes 3 season bag - light weight and warm. Not inexpensive but I like the size and flexibility. I use it in place of blankets - if and when they are provided.
