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

I arrived at the circus because a friend was staying there.. GREAT Decision!!! The people working there were really helpful with getting around berlin, there is wifi around the hostel and outside, there is a "u" station right outside of the hostel.. Can't say anything bad about the place :)

I only stayed one night at this hostel in a private room. It was a beautiful bachelor apartment sized room with all the amenities of being at home (proper kitchen with stove top, fridge etc). The room was very clean and bright and the bathroom was nice as well. The staff were very nice and helpful. Breakfast was lovely in... More

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
