Cannot praise this hostel enough! For the price it was incredible: colourful spacious rooms, clean showers and toilets, quirky reception area, great views, comfy beds and the staff were really lovely and helpful! Easy to meet fellow travellers and have a few predrinks before going out. Locationwise was so handy, right beside the u banh station and there are amazing... More

Special mention of the staff seems to be in order, very pleasant people. Especially a ruggedly handsome gentleman that goes by the name of 'Jan' was a very pleasant fellow. Also Soren and Dom were very nice and personable. The person making the hiring decisions is doing a good job. Very recommendable hostel.

First time in Berlin and the location was amazing - there was so much to do in the neighborhood, Mitte. Staff were incredibly friendly, and the room was big and clean. The beer from their brewery is decent and the burger from the café was okay. So cool that they have those options, though, and breakfast was great (5 euros... More

I stayed here on a recommendation from a friend (I thought, at 31, I was too old for hostels) and am so glad I did. I had a single room which was very comfortable with lots of storage space and lighting options. There was even a small fan which was great since Berlin was in a bit of a heatwave.... More

I really loved staying at the Circus! Everything about it was perfect! The location, the staff, the cleanliness, the tours, the brewery, the other travelers...a good vibe all around! I had a private single room and it was bright and clean. The window opened onto the street below and I loved to sit with a beer and people watch. Even... More

The Circus is a great hostel, it has everything you can expect from a hostel. It has a great location, great atmosphere, fast wifi, good staff and it is safe, clean and comfortable. The subway station is just across the street and the Alexander Platz is 10 minutes by foot. There are also a bunch of restaurants in the neighborhood

Superb location in the centre of everything, friendly staff who go out of their way to help you. Very clean and modern with an excellent bar and breakfast menu. The only problem was no AC in the rooms, during a summer heatwave when we went it can get a little uncomfortable. Next time I visit Berlin I will definitely stay... More

Great location, value for money, homemade beer and a David hasslehoff shrine! I was only slightly bothered by the summer heat because there's no ac in the rooms but you survive, I'd recommend it for solo travelers and large groups for the shared roomed

Absolutely brilliant. Great experience from the moment I stepped inside the door. The staff, especially the girl that served me at reception were amazing. The hostel is large, clean, modern and professional. I shared a 6 person dorm and it was top quality. Spacious, great wifi, lockers in room, power sockets everywhere, comfy beds. Food available, plenty of common areas... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
