Nice personell, cool with a bar in the hostel, good wi-fi and in a great location! Also met very nice people and it's easy to get tips from the hostel on restaurants, bars, museums or whatever. Would recommend the circus hostel!

I loved the location of this hostel. Berlin is quite a large city so walking everywhere would be hard, but this hostel has buses and trains right out the front! I booked this hostel because of the brewery/bar in the basement and you get a free sample of beer when you check in. The staff are fairly helpful but not... More

Having stayed here in September 2015 I knew it was good, so immediately booked when planning a return to trip to Berlin in September 2016. The staff are friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. I had a single room and it was clean and quiet. The place feels very safe and secure, and there are enough toilets and showers for all. I... More

I spent 3 nights in a 10 bed mixed dorm at the hostel and was super happy with my stay. The rooms were clean, bright, and had a table in the middle of the room. The beds were comfortable and had some space for personal items. My only complaint about the rooms was lack of bins under the bed or... More

Circus is located in a perfect spot - right next to a subway station, lots of restaurants, supermarkets and shops around - but the overall experience was a let down for me. I stayed in a 10-bed room. The room had a constant awful smell and wasn't always that clean - as people are allowed to eat and drink in... More

I stayed here together with my friends for our summer Europe round trip. We arrived just before midnight, this did not matter, reception was still open and ready to give us advice about what to do in Berlin. The rooms are spacious and clean, one has to realize it is in the centre of Berlin, which has its perks and... More

Great price and location with a metro station so close, friendly staff who could speak all languages and modern, clean rooms with high standard toilets and showers. Also the breakfast area is very good, along with the bar in the evenings - would recommend to anyone looking for a hostel in Berlin!

This was a really solid hostel! It's trendy and has great energy. The people there are very helpful and speak perfect English, if that's important for you. The rooms were pretty standard -- bunk beds, etc. -- and showers/bathrooms were nothing amazing, but everything was clean. The beds themselves were really comfortable. I ended up going to sleep around 8:30... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
