This was my first time staying in any hostel, so I was quite nervous, not knowing what to expect. Especially, sharing a dorm with strangers. But, my friends and I had a fantastic stay. The staff were very helpful and cordial. The cafe is so so but the brewery downstairs is great where you can meet a lot of people....

I had initially booked only three nights in my own room at the Circus Berlin Hostel, but after the positive experience decided to stay an additional three nights in a mixed dorm. Both the solo room and mixed room lived up to expectations - the 4-person rooms are actually quite large and have separate beds for guests (no bunk beds)...

Amazing!! Staff was fabulous, rooms were beautiful and clean as well as the bathrooms. I went solo and met so many people. It was great! The brewery in the basement was dope - bartender was great and kind and it was CHEAP. The breakfast buffet was 5 euro and it was great - I literally looked forward to it every...

Can't say enough good things about the circus hostel. It's in a great location, right in front of the U train which is great. It's inviting, it's clean, it's beautiful, and the staff are welcoming and extremely friendly. Was very surprised at the cleanliness of the hostel. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and I was really pleased. Have a great...

I visited Berlin solo and found this to be a great base for exploring the city. Friendly staff, basic but clean rooms and amenities, great atmosphere. The bar and cafe are also great! Well worth a visit.

The hostel is very centrally located in one of the best neighborhoods in Berlin. The place itself is very clean and has helpful staff 24/7.

Staying in Mitte

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.
