We loved Circus. We are In this hostel business and loved what they do. Lovely bar. Cafe. Breakfast. Comfy beds. Nice rooms. Will be back if we are ever In Berlin again. Staff are really helpful and lovely cocktails at the bar. It's in a good area too.

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...

Right by train station and near a lot of restaurants and bars. Clean rooms and facilities. Would definitely stay again. Free WiFi and daily activities planned. They even had an iron for me to use. Nice cafe/bar attached

We came for a short break. The hostel is lovely and clean. The location was perfect and generally the staff are very friendly and helpful. The only flaw was the noise. The slamming of the doors kept us awake. We were also extremely lucky in regards to the weather, but that meant the room was very hot. We had to... More

Great place to stay, It was my first time travelling by myself but have been to various hostels before but none compare with this one. Comfortable, clean (obsessively clean), great great location (for seeing sights and U-bahn, not for going clubbing but thats always under ?10), very sociable and full of lovely people, bar downstairs is great place to meet...

I have great things to say about the always reliable Circus Hostel: 1) The location: in the lively Scheunenviertel, which is full of restaurants, great nightlife and bars. Besides, there are two U Bahn stations less than five minutes away (U8 stops right in front and U2 a few blocks further). 2) The amenities: you can rent a transport pass... More

Stayed for 4 nights and easily could have stayed for longer. I stayed in a 4 person room (with friends & partner), the room was big enough for us, the showers were clean as well as the toilets. It's in a great location, Rosenthaler Platz station is right on your doorstep and there are a few good places to eat... More
