Excelent staff very friendly and helpful, excelent acommodation, very clean, good facilities, a wonderful breakfast (the best one we had in our trip for 10 different places), thank you for all the attention!!!
Everything's good; location can't be beat since Berlin is just huge and has an awesome transportation system. So you'd need to use it no matter where you live. Amazing restaurants nearby like sucre et sel.
I really like this place. It's very clean. Cleaner than most hotels I've stayed in! The staff are great and I really like the the breakfast choices and the fact it runs until 1 pm. The location is brilliant with plenty to do in the area and a U bahn and tram stop literally on the door step.
Really great, clean hostel. Awesome beds with lots of space in the rooms. It's really big, so it's a bit like a hotel. It was a little harder to meet other travellers due to the atmosphere
Circus hostel is very convenient to get to from the airport or train station. However it's a bit awkward to get to some of the sights. It's probably faster to walk the 2.5 km to Brandenburg gate than it is to take public transport. Every Thursday they have a FREE great street art tour which finished near the east side gallery. They also have a limited number of all day transport passes for 5 euro/day. Would recommend this hostel but if you are an early sleeper don't expect it to get quiet
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 !
staff were super friendly and helpful. amazing location and good selection of cafes/bars/restaurants nearby. tram and train station quite literally on the doorstep. only got wifi downstairs mind you but who wants to be sitting on the internet all day anyway. would definitely recommend. great buffet breakfast till 1pm as well
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)
