Very cool hostel ! Highly recomended ! Staff could be more helpful with information and tips. One of the best hostels that I have stayed in . Very clean also !
Really excellent staff and hostel. Linens provided, locks and secure safes provided without additional charges. It was a really great stay and I would have to say one of the best I've been in. Felt completely comfortable and safe as a single female traveler.
lockers are in the lowest floor, there's just a small one beside your bed. I was expecting a proper locker inside the room. Also, there are not many chances to get to know other people in the hostel (e.g. other hostels organize dinners, wine tasting, ...). Overall, very good location, the rooms and bathrooms are squeaky clean (in the floor I was staying) and the staff is great.
Fantastic Hostel. Room was clean and there were many shower and bathroom facilities. Loved the shelves above the bed and the personal lockers with power sockets in them. The hostel had a fun and youthful atmosphere as well. Will definitely be coming back.
A hostel that felt like a hotel! Very nicely decorated, kept very clean. Big hostel. There are no lockers in the rooms, just a small locking shelf near your bed (will hold a few personal items only), and upon check in guests are told that this "locker" is not secure, so valuables should be left at reception. There is an all you can eat breakfast for 5 euro and there is a lot to choose from. Convenience store across the street was ideal. Needs better wifi connection that doesn't time out.
Great hostel in a great location, will probably stay here again when I come back to Berlin because of the price. Didn't feel the atmosphere was very good here however.
Really good place to stay. Well within reach of anything in the city and right next to the U-bahn. Was a very clean hostel and always a team of people cleaning something somewhere. A good place for solo travellers too.
Great hostel! Clean, VERY secure, very helpful staff, great atmosphere for meeting other travelers! One of the best hostels I've stayed in throughout Europe. Definitely recommended.
Great pick in Berlin! Right in the middle of the action, with many bars around and subway just a few steps. The place is clean and with great atmosphere... Can be noisy at night, but nothing that earplugs can not solve! Definitely recommend it!
Great atmosphere for meeting people. Lots of space in our ten bed room. The halls and rooms were nicely decorated and I liked the automatic lighting everywhere to save energy. The cafe (with patio) and bar were awesome.
The Circus Hostel is amazing!! The staff are great, very helpful and friendly. Rooms are spacious and the showers and bathrooms were really clean. Facilities were great, and the bar staff are awesome! Breakfast is average but do-able.
Really good hostel - rooms very spacious, with a (very) small locker and powerpoint at each bed. The only downside in my opinion is that it's pretty pricey given that there is no breakfast included, no laundry facilities and no kitchen. Not a whole lot of social events either (though there is a bar downstairs)

Location, facilities, cleanliness were all extraordinary. Especially the staffs were smiley and helpful. I enjoyed my stay here very much.
The Circus Hostel has a great location, right in the center of Mitte and right next to a tram stop. But if meeting people is what you're after, this hostel does not have the best atmosphere. The hostel is HUGE and the common space is quite small and set up a bit disjointed. The rooms were decent but super hot in the summer. The place is clean and the breakfast is good but there is no kitchen so you have to buy all of your food from them or somewhere else. I'd try a different hostel next time.
Hostel is clean, but has more of a hotel feel! Super secure with room keys needed all over the place. Hostel should organise more events for the evening times, maybe open mic nights/bar crawl, would make it more sociable. could also advise getting kitchen services! Overall stay was good, wish staff had been more helpful telling us where to go as that would have saved us a lot of time! Would seriously recommend doing the WALKING TOUR, it really made our stay in Berlin and is free on a tips-only.
Really great hostel with great people. Very clean and good location. However, there is no kitchen meaning you have to buy food which is not problem in Berlin but obviously makes things more pricey. Overall fantastic
One of the BEST hostels I've stayed in. Great location. There are buses and a subway right outside the door, a park to relax in with a drink and only a 5-10 minute walk to Alexanderplatz! Staff were very helpful and spoke a plethora of languages. It was cleaned regularly and for that I was grateful. The atmosphere was good but people kept themselves to themselves. It was excellent value for money and would 100% recommend and stay there again and again.
Great base to have in Berlin. The rooms facing onto the main street are really loud when you have the windows open (you need to in summer because there's no aircon). Staff were lovely and helpful
Large rooms, good location, clean hostel. Only drawbacks are lack of air con (it was particularly hot when I was in Berlin) and the lockers in the room. The lockers are very small and only suitable for keeping a few items in - you can't fit even a small rucksack inside. They do have storage for large bags in the basement, but that's less convenient than what you might find elsewhere. Bar is pretty good, but didn't have much atmosphere - would recommend going elsewhere in the evenings
only stayed for one night. super party hostel. like seriously. people didn't leave to go out till 2 am.
