Circus is probably the best hostel I've stayed at while traveling. Great location, really good rooms and it's all very secure. The staff couldn't be more helpful and they were good fun too, always smiling. The Circus has a really good chilled out vibe and the bar is a perfect place to meet other people. The location is ideal with... More

Fun and quirky hostel. Staff are brilliant in that they're friendly, responsive and polite. When I needed toiletries, the staff provided them to me ASAP including a towel. It was clean, spacious and the share bathrooms were plentiful. Location could be slightly better (try staying on a train line with Alexanderplatz) but I'd still recommend this for a modern and...

Friendly and BEYOND helpful staff. Spotless rooms. Attractive furnishings. Perfect location. Great prices. Excellent breakfast options. I traveled recently with some relatives and we stayed 3 nights, in a private room, at Circus Hostel. From the moment we arrived we felt comfortable and welcome. According to the Circus Hostel's magazine they do not hire people based on their hotel/hospitality experience.... More

Most of place is modern, stylish, and spotless. 24 hour reception, bar on premise. Very friendly, helpful English speaking staff. Conveniently located across the street from a U8 stop and a 24-hour convenient store which sells all types of alcohol, cheap w/ picnic tables out front. I stayed in a single, but sadly no ensuite bathroom available. The walls are... More

We stayed here three nights in a private double with a shared bathroom. Everything was very clean and staff was helpful. Location couldn't have been better. Just steps from the subway and tram. Lots of attractions within walking distance. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

We had a double room here and it was comfortable with plenty of room. The hostel is well maintained and the bathroom facilities fine. We found the staff helpful and friendly. The hostel is well positioned for transport by U-Bahn and tram so finding your way from here to most destinations is straightforward. Recommended!

We stayed 3 nights on a short city break. The hostel is 2 stations north of Alexanderplatz and is a great central location. The staff we were great, very knowledgeable and helpful during our stay. They can practically organise anything for you and has a 24 hour reception as well. The rooms/shared showers/toilets were absolutely spotless at all times. the... More

The Circus Hostel was a fantastic base for three nights in Berlin. We took over a three bed dorm which was clean and comfortable. The toilets and showers were shared, but there were plenty and were clean. There is a good cafe and a bar downstairs which was good, though the shop over the road appealed more with beer available...
