Gold has intrinsic value
Despite the fact Gold also does not pay dividends or interests. But gold has always able to command a intrinsic value as many industrial processes or high tech equipment need gold as a conductor. Gold is a metal that is nonreactive, conductive, soft and easily formed. 

Fear of money currency devaluation
Ever since 1971 when the US dollar is decoupled and no longer backed by gold, governments have been printing loads of paper money to support the economy growth. Many have feared the growing debts would overcome the government ability to contain it. So, gold is view as a hedge on the possible collapse or devaluation of the paper money currency.
