We only booked one night at circus hostel, but would definitely go back the next time we visit Berlin. We stayed in a double private room. Room was basic, but spacious. Didn't have to climb over our backpacks to get to bed. No air con, but a big window that opened kept us the perfect temperature through the night. Shared... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in July. It was a good, clean hostel. Having wifi throughout was great and the Katz & Maus cafe and bar was very convenient for breakfast and drinks. There is much better food nearby, however. It is also nice that they have a safe and 24 hour reception. I originally booked a private room... More

Cheap, well located, clean, comfy and with a decent breakfast menu. What's not to like? Stayed at the Circus in 2007 and enjoyed it enough to stay there again when coming back in 2014. Recommend getting a quiet room by the courtyard as that way you can't hear the tram that runs past the building.

The location is really good, close to central places and located two steps from a subway station. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Free WiFi, cheap breakfast and in-house pub which was great to meet other travelers. Downside are the rooms which are very clean but have no bathroom (shared), not so big (but OK) and the bed wasn't... More

We are two 18 year old girls on our first solo trip and this hostel definitely exceeded expectations! Their attention to detail was great, you could rent bikes, ipads, ipods and laptops if you wanted to. Very clean and spacious rooms with a great communual area in the form of a bar and cafe, where for 5 euros you can... More

Me and my boyfriend booked to stay here for 3 nights. When we first arrived the 'hostel' looked amazing and it is actually very nice. The first guy we came across at the reception desk was very friendly and told us all about the place and everything we needed to know, sadly we didn't see him again throughout our stay.... More

I felt like I was staying at a hotel during my stay at the Circus Hostel. There was a bar downstairs in the hostel, which was a good starting point to meet people before going out. There was a lot of young people staying at this hostel. However, the hallways were quiet and I was not disturbed by any loud... More
