One of the Best Hostels May 07, 2011
Very busy, you must book ahead...

I had problems with walking-in and got 2 nights but, 2 different rooms. However, an employee spent 10+mins calling other hostels

to find me a bed for my remaining days in Berlin. That was a nice touch and i never expected that kind of effort.

The showers are good, stainless steel singles and the rooms are better than most hotels with the dark hardwood floors.

The bar is busy, friendly and had David Hasselhoff art all over it which was cool! "Don't hassle the Hoff!"

This hostel also had tickets to a Berlin Hertha Football match which was absolutely amazing!

Highly Recommend the Circus Hostel

I hate clowns but I LOVE THE CIRCUS!!!! Sep 01, 2010
LOVED IT!! Really clean, really hip and modern, very affordable, their staff is REALLY friendly and VERY helpful.

The cafe is awesome and the bar is good, although the bar tender was kinda serious (im guessing he was having a bad week).

U can rent pad locks, blowdryers, irons, alarm clock...u name it! Its only 5euros per item u rent and this money is given back to u once u leave the hostel and return the items.

U can also rent a transportation card, u only give 20euros in advance and then 4 euros per day u use this card, the 20euros are given back to u.

The showers r really clean, massive mirrors! And u can use them whenever u want.

The location is amazing, it's near the subways and the rail...actually the train stop right infront of the hostel...right in front of it!( No kidding). .

It has lots of cute lil stores around it, and on the corner of the hostel u have this pizza joint with very good pizzas an italian food and its open all night! So if u have a midnight craving after partying u can always stop there (i think we've all done that!! hehe).

Check-out is at 12noon but if your plane/train leaves in the afternoon u can store your lugagge with them at no cost, i did that!

The vibe of the hostel is amazing, im really happy with my decision of staying there, im deffo going back to Berlin and DEFFO staying at The Circus.

If u r young at heart and wanting to have a great time then u must stay here.

U wont regret it!!!

Best Hostel so far!! Jul 10, 2009
I was debating on whether or not to stay in a hotel or hostel while visiting Berlin. I have had some bad hostel experiences before but when my friend to me about this place I decided to give it a go... it was the best decision I've made!! The Circus Hostel is located just off of the Rosenthaler Platz subway stop. To get from Tegel Airport, I pre-arranged (with the hostel) to have a private car to pick me up. It was 25 euros and was completely worth it seeing as both Tegel and Schoenefeld airports are not easily accessible from the city. Our room was not ready when we checked in so they gave us a locker key (for a 10 euro desposit which was returned) to store our things. Overall The Circus had the cleanest bedrooms and bathrooms of any hostel I've stayed in. They had wireless and pcs for internet use (at a charge). They also had a bar where you could get food and drinks from. They also had a bar in the basement which of course was just for alcoholic drinks. The staff were friendly and all spoke English. Next time I go to Berlin I will definitely stay here!!

Great hostel and great price! Nov 02, 2009
This place was great! One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. The location was the best part. All the best sites, shopping, and nightlife are just a short bike ride away. Within walking distance are several great restaurants and one beautiful public park. The Circus also has everything you need if you just want to hang out and rest for a couple days.

One of the things I really engoyed about Circus was the bar. Even Berlin locals come here to hang out and have drinks with the travelers! My first night at Circus I met a nice local who took my friend and I on a very drunken walking tour of was great! I highly recommend Circus to anybody traveling in Berlin!

recommended hostel while in berlin Sep 17, 2008
This hostel was converted from a hotel into a hostel some time ago (not sure when). Because of this, it retains a good many features that many hostels do not possess-multi story, elevators, etc. While I was here, I found the staff helpful but not intrusive. It is located in the former East Berlin, as seen by the 'running man' traffic signals for pedestrians, (the only place in the world one can find this); and the tram tracks. The former West Berlin did not have trams. It is relatively easy to locate on the map, if you get confused the best people to ask are the rail employees. I met 2 Aussies while staying there and we had a wonderful time exploring berlin. I normally travel solo but appreciate good company while abroad. The Circus Hostel provides a great place to meet fellow travelers of all ages and a decidedly unique pub downstairs in the basement (Goldman's Pub).

The Circus Hostel, a good choice for staying in Berlin Feb 22, 2006
I went to the Circus Hostel, (the one near Rosenthaler Platz) on february 2006. I didn't know about this hostel, I was searching for some hostel to stay in Berlin and then I find it with the google.

This place is amazing. Good location, nice people there, there are interesting activities at the bar, and they make nice tours around the city as well.

I was surprised by the cleanliness, you won't find not even a hair in the shower, well, that is my experience there.

Bedrooms are very clean and they are really comfortable and well decorated.

I have to confess that I really liked and I will go back to the Circus if I go to Berlin.

Yes, it's very near from Alexanderplatz and the Museuminsel. It's the best youth hostel I've ever been, and I have been in a lot of hostels and Bed & Breakfast. This one is great
