Circus Hostel goes down as one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. Really easy to find and get to from the Hbf using the U-Bahn (station right outside) in a great location with tonnes of food options on the same street catering for whatever kind of cuisine you want - German, Indian, Thai, Mexican etc etc. The...

My friend and I stayed in a 4 bedder dorm for 4 nights. Overall it was an excellent stay considering that it was a hostel! We were in another hostel in Vienna and definitely agreed we were spoilt by what we had at Circus. Rooms were amazing! No bunk beds, clean sheets, big windows for fresh air and roomy. Showers...

One of the best hostel that I've been in Europe! It's really clean and organized. The staff is helpful and friendly all the time. There is a bar and a social area where you can talk with the travelers around the world. 15 min walk to alexanderplatz and there is a subway station right across the street. The location is... More

My brother and I stayed at The Circus Hostel after a recommendation from our older brother. The beds and bathrooms were very well kept and clean. The location was a great fit because of the proximity to bars, restaurants and mass transit. Any questions that we had were answered by the lovely people at the front desk. We were even... More

This hostel is located right by the train station, so you have direct access from the airport. There is the tram line running outside the front door that whizzes you into town every 8 minutes or so. The private room I had was clean, the windows worked and the bathrooms were spotless. The security card you had to swipe to... More

This was a truly great experience! The front door is nearly impossible to miss. The decor throughout is really fun actually! The staff was all polite and very friendly (locked ourselves out...twice...) Very much like a dorm, with many rooms in the hallway and separated male/female bathrooms with showers. Our private room was much bigger than I expected and very... More

We had 3 nights in a private double room which was absolutely massive and had a great en suite. The staff were friendly and informative, the bar downstairs was lively and had great live music (Thursdays) The cafe next door does a really good breakfast for a couple of Euros. Overall a great package that's really easy to get to... More

I stayed here for 5 nights and had a grand old time! The location is perfect as the tram spot and metro station is literally right outside. The bar downstairs was pretty quiet when I stayed so it was a bit tricky to make friends. Luckily, the people in my 10 bed dorm were awesome so it didn't matter so... More

The Circus Hostel is a fantastic hostel, the rooms are almost a hotel standard and they are vibrant and comfy! The shared bathroom isn't an issue and we never had to wait for the showers or toilets! You need a keycard to access each corridor which caused us a couple of problems since we had 2 rooms on separate floors... More
