I had a great time staying at the circus hostel. Being a solo traveller, the hostel was friendly, accommodating and helpful. The hostel is right next to subway tram and bus stops which is really convenient. Rooms were clean and comfortable although being next to a busy street, it can seem a bit noisy. Having personal power points and lock... More

The Circus Hostel was a perfect experience for me. Clean rooms, funky-designer corridors and spacious, clean shower rooms. The staff at the reception are smiling and always warm. I stayed in a 10-bed dorm and there wasn't any reason for me to complain through the four nights I lived there.

This was our pick of the bunch of European hotels during our month long trip. We stayed in one of the private couple rooms which was perfect for our needs. You had to walk through a heavy security door separating the mixed dorms from the private rooms and our stuff felt very secure. The location was perfect; right across from... More

Neat rooms, very nice bar and it's convenient location - near to the Rosenthaler Platz, which is very close to Alexander Platz, one of the main subway stations (maybe the main one) - make this hostel a very good choice . I haven't sem big lockers, only small ones for your valuables (at least they have inside an AC outlet,... More

Hostel is very well presented and unlike many hostels I've stayed in in the past was cleaned to a high standard every day :) I stayed in an 8 bed mixed form which had 4 bunk beds, table and chairs, storage lockers and lamps by each bed. There were separate toilets and showers located further down the corridor. The hostel... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in a double room and we were so impressed with the cleanliness and size of the room. The heater in the room was excellent to combat the Berlin chill. The staff members were fantastic, one in particular accompanied us to a club after his shift ended and we had the best night. Thoroughly enjoyed our... More

Perfect hostel! Clean, modern, cool, friendly, great value, perfect location, great cafe and bar with good prices. Super fast free WiFi. My boyfriend and I had a double room to ourselves with no bathroom. I was a bit worried about this when I booked, however, the showers and toilets were just across the hall, and if anything it was better... More

I travelled to Berlin in Oct 2011 and stayed here. This was booked by one of my travel companions and I must say she did a good job. We had a private room with 3 single beds. The room was massive! It was clean and simple, everything a traveller on a bit of a budget needs. The shared facilities were... More

This is it -- a super nice place to stay in Berlin. The staff is wonderful, the rooms clean, 5 euro breakfast buffet, great hot shower, within walking distance of so many places and U8 outside the front door when you need to go farther. We stayed in the studio apartment which was great and had a nice view from... More
