What great fun! This is because of all the amazing people in my hostel room. Spacious, comfy beds and a common table in the room. Clean and the breakfast/cafe area was great - definitely worth it to pay the 5 euro fee for the feast you get (it's buffet style). Location is great for traditional German food and late night eats ;). It is right next to a train station and a major intersection so it's quite loud at night. Don't expect to get straight sleep because the sirens go off a lot!
Really handy location next to trams and U-Bahn (U8 line) A few good little places to eat in the immediate vicinity. Try the currywurst at 'Curry' across the road! The free walking tour is really good, especially if you're interested in the history of Berlin in the last century. €5 all you can eat breakfast is well worth it. Good little bar downstairs. Outside noise from Rosenthaler Platz is the only real negative. That and nowhere to cook for those who usually want to.
Really good hostel, lots of amenities and in great location!
A very nice, clean hostel in a fairly good part of town. Close to transportation or you could walk. Takes about twenty or thirty minutes to get to the main areas of the city. It doesn't have much of a common area but there's a cafe and a bar downstairs where you could easily meet alot of other travellers. Overall I definitely recommend this hostel.
Best hostel that I was till now! Really well located and clean, there is a Bar downstairs with feasible beer prices and a Cafeteria whit few but tasty options. The breakfast is not included the only thing that maybe I will change my ratio from 100 to 98.5 ;) I also loved the luggage room with individual lockers you can check out and walk around light and carefree ;)
big city hostel, saggy beds, but great staff. I might try a smaller hostel in a different neighbourhood next time, but Circus is still okay.
This place is great.friendly staff. Facility is clean. Bar and coffee shop in-house, breakfast is great for 5€.Luggage storage feels safe as well. Beds are so comfortable compared to all hostels I've stayed in.i stayed in 8bed all female dorm room,rooms are big. Location is great,close to everything by metro.including hauptbahnhof.area very accessible for cheap eats. Stayed again on the last day of my trip.
No fridge or kitchen. Difficult to fill up drink bottles from taps. Bathrooms were cleaned in rush hour which didn't help when you needed to get going in the morning. Really friendly helpful staff. Great atmosphere.
Large room with plenty of space to spread out. Each bed has a lamp, a shelf and a lockable cubby. Key required to get up the elevator, into the floor and into the room. Cleaning lady was inconsiderate and often in the way - keeping the bathroom or shower closed and even asking me to leave the bathroom while I was halfway thru cutting my nails because she was in a hurry. Connecting to wifi on an iOS device is a pain in the butt but you get used to it. Showers aren't great - poor press
Good place well located. Bar pretty decent and can meet people if you're outgoing. No real group activities or anything as you would get at a smaller hostel.
A great hostel. Friendly staff, very clean. The location is good and it's wifi is great for hostel standards. The cafe is nice too and I got a free beer at the bar so 10 points there. Only bad thing is the rooms get hot at night. I would recommend this hostel to everyone going to Berlin except people that want to be close to the party districts, although the underground is right out front and it doesn't take long to get to them. The Döner shop across the road is sweet too.
The staff is ver friendly and helpful. The dorms have a good size. The locación is great
We booked twin room with bathroom (apartment 9 on 5F). The apartments are clean, big and tidy and all staff are friendly, efficient and very helpful! Transportation is great which I can take bus to and from the Berlin Hbf directly and also just few mins walk to U Bahn station. Tram station is also very close to the hostel.
Best hostel I've ever stayed in! Great location, great staff, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. Thank you for a great stay. I highly recommend staying at the circus.

One of the best hostel (probably the best) that I've been in Europe. Breakfast buffet was sick. This was a truly great experience.
I loved this place. It was clean and spacious with chargers inside your locker (very thoughtful). The 5 euro buffet breakfast is great value. Don't expect it to be a party hostel though, it's just a great hostel in Berlin.
Every single staff person was kind and helpful. I am a seasoned traveller, alone, a 68 year old woman and chose hostel for location and knew there would be helpful staff for first time in Berlin. Breakfast great value...I sometimes came back and pedi another 5 euros for same buffet at lunchtime.

Great place, so convenient to get to. Only downside is there is no laundry in the building, you have to go up the street. Otherwise excellent!
Great hostel to stay at if travelling alone. Great way to meet fellow travelers. Excellent facilities and comfortable bed.
