I can't fault this place. It's clean, the staff are fantastic, comfortable beds, great breakfast till 1pm, next door to the tram and U-Bahn, and a brewery down stairs. Will absolutely stay here again when I come back to Berlin.

We decided to stay in Berlin for my 50th and chose an apartment in the hostel. A good choice it transpired as the location, room and atmosphere were just what we were after. Quirky,vibrant and eclectic. Excellent! * Good ale bar in the basement too!*

My girlfriend and I originally booked 3 nights, but the night we got there and saw this magnificent place we proceeded to book 7 more nights. Could not recommended this place enough. The sheer amount of free or very cheap services they offer more than make up for the lack kitchen; there was no urge to cook due to all... More

This was my first visit to Berlin. I was looking for something that would be in close proximity to transportation with good value. That was exactly what I got by staying at the Circus hostel. Understand that age 60, I was somewhat leery of the experience - but the facility was secure, friendly and helpful - and full welcoming to... More

My sister and I stayed at this hostel while visiting Berlin for two nights. It was our first every hostel experience and was wonderful!! The staff was very attentive, breakfast was great, and the sleeping areas were clean and comfy. The bathrooms were also fairly nice.

I had a great stay at this hostel, they organized a few free events and outings which made my trip really easy and informative. I loved the design and style of the lobby, bar and café. The private rooms are a good size, and if you manage to get one away from the main door you won't get much noise.... More

Circus is a hostel that has a lot of effort put into it, and it clearly shows. The lobby decor is subtle and fun. The hallways and rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. The dorm I stayed in was spacious and bright. It has some of the little things that you appreciate in a hostel like big... More

Really couldn't fault this hostel. Felt immediately welcomed on arrival. The staff were all very friendly and offered us as much information as possible. The rooms were so clean and spacious. One of the cleanest hostels I'v stayed in. There was a great atmosphere in the lobby and in the hostel bar downstairs. Great for meeting fellow travellers. Perfect location,... More

The showers were clean and hot . The toilet was clean, however there was some mess in the toilet for a few days. The cleaning was good... 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.
