The Circus Hostel is well located right by Rosenthaler Platz subway station, and it's also not too much of a stretch to walk to the major museums and sight from there. It's clean and the rooms are large. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and the hostel even do free tours. There is food to be had in a cafe inside...

This review is way overdue. I was in Berlin in late december 2012, not knowing any German, i wondered around asking people if there are any hostels in the area and someone told me of the Circus hostel, interesting name i thought but what the heck. Girl at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. We communicated in English...

That`s a very nice hostel. It`s so comfortable that you could realize if it`s either a hostel or a hotel. Location is awesome, there are plenties of places to grab something to eat nearby. The bar is a must! Double good German beers on selected times (happy hours) are the perfect start for the intense nightlife of Berlin. The staff...

This was the cleanest accom that we had in Europe, I know that's a big call - we booked one night last minute and expected a shabby hostel - instead it was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. I would stay here again instead of an hotel - loved it and the service was superb

This is mostly a good hostel, very clean and very secure - card swiping is required at every door. Good location near the metro and trams. There's a really large bar in the basement and they have a lot of info available, even a special landing website with information on their wifi. Free dinner in the evenings, though unfortunately they...

I loved the Circus Hostel. From the David Hasselhoff memorabilia to the awesome bar & DJ area downstairs, I was more than satisfied with my stay here. The location is great - easy to move between different parts of the city via walking or the nearby metro station. The staff was very helpful and gave me a lot of ideas...

We loved this place so much we stayed here twice. It's a great central location, walkable to Alexanderplatz and across the road from Rosenthaler metro station. Fantastic social atmosphere with a bar downstairs that has different events every night, and a great cafe that serves free dinner and a really good 5 euro breakfast buffet. The interior is very modern,...

Great hostel. I stayed with 2 other friends in a ensuite room (room 101). It faces the main street, so it's a bit noisy, but no too much. Room and bathroom were clean and nice. Staff was super friendly, they offer walking tours everyday and help with tips. They serve dinner at 7pm for free! Great for ones on a...

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.
