The location is perfect, the room nice, the option for breakfast quite good and the staff quite helpful. In spite of the majority of the guests are younger the place is comfortable for kids and elder ones. Clean and organized and even in areas of common use the oder, certain level of silence and respect are noticed.

Myself and three friends stayed here for 3 nights. We booked two private double rooms, with shared bathrooms. The bedroom itself was spotless, the bed was comfortable and there was room for you to unpack your bag. The toilet and shower room was spotless and there was never an issue getting a shower in the morning. The common space in...

My daughter and her friend are travelling round Europe and stayed her for two nights. My daughter left some of her belongings in a drawer of the room she stayed in and contacted the staff to ask if they would see if the clothes were still there and if they would kindly post the clothes back to her home address...

The hostel is located right next to the U Bahn, the Tram and buses for easy transit. They offer great walking tours (some for free)! The staff is very helpful and you can rent iPads if you need to. It's great!

Everything was great! Only improvements i can think of is my room card stopped working 7 times! I had to go to the front desk each time very annoying. Also it would be nice if the bar was open earlier. Besides those things i had a great experience the staff were all friendly and helpful.

I first booked a shared room, but very nicely they allowed me change to a private room paying the difference. The room was really clean and comfortable, and it had private bathroom also! Breakfast was really good (you have to pay though). Location is perfect, just in front of a tram stop and a subway station.

I stayed in six hotels over an 18-day period and this was my favorite. Now, I was able to reserve a Junior Suite, which is a small apartment with a kitchen, bathroom, and balcony and not the typical hostel room/bathroom sharing scenario. Perfect location, right by the Rosenthaler U-Station and surrounded by many restaurants, etc. The bed was a little...

Really enjoyed our time at the Circus Hostel. Location was great, with access to the tram literally right outside the front door and the buses and metro close-by. Our room was a private room with a shared bathroom and was perfect for us! The bathrooms were clean, as were the showers, if not a bit small, and the building was...

I booked a hostel on the far northwestern side of Berlin that wasn't up to my standards, and I am SO thankful to have found the Circus Hostel in the wonderful area of Alexanderplatz. It was so much closer to all of the tourist attractions - just a short metro ride away. The staff were very considerate and kind. The...

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre 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 neighbourhood’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.
