I stayed here for 5 nights and had a grand old time! The location is perfect as the tram spot and metro station is literally right outside. The bar downstairs was pretty quiet when I stayed so it was a bit tricky to make friends. Luckily, the people in my 10 bed dorm were awesome so it didn't matter so... More

The Circus Hostel is a fantastic hostel, the rooms are almost a hotel standard and they are vibrant and comfy! The shared bathroom isn't an issue and we never had to wait for the showers or toilets! You need a keycard to access each corridor which caused us a couple of problems since we had 2 rooms on separate floors... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights during a recent stay in Berlin and was quite impressed with the place. The best aspect of this hostel for me was the location, in the mitte district and a short trip on the U line from alexanderplatz and from the centre of Berlin. It is also possible to walk to most of... More

I stayed here with a group of friends for 3 nights last April. Very friendly staff, clean, reasonably priced and a great location, would definitely recommend it! The bar downstairs was an amazing place to hang out in the evening, great for meeting new people.

Not too much needs saying that probably hasn't already been said, so here's a list. - Amazing rooms, very spacious, with individual shelves, plug sockets and lockers next to each bed. - Lovely cafe (with a great breakfast), with an amazing bar in the basement. - Charming staff. - Relaxed, nice neighbourhood. Great park nearby. - Really friendly vibe. -... More

Really cool place in the trendy Mitte district of Berlin on the corner of Rosenthaler Straße. Cool and helpful staff who additionally have an excellent taste in music (playing Arcade Fire and Neil Young when I arrived), clean and comfy rooms, nice little bar, and lockers for storage. Excellent transport links might be the only complaint! The U-Bahn and tram... More

Stayed here for five nights last May with my daughter, we stayed in the apartments in the hostel which are fabulous they are clean, spacious, a great location with two balconies one with views over Berlin. Could not have asked for better. Great value for money especially given there is a well equipped kitchen.

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
