    This might be the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in. The staff were incredible helpful, my room was comfortable and clean, I felt very safe as a solo female traveler, and the bar was so fun. Also loved the convenience of the attached cafe for breakfast and the convenience of being right by the train. Highly recommend

    Staying at the Circus Hostel was a delightful experience. The staff was both very welcoming and professional and approaching them under any circumstance was no problem. The hostel interiors were neat (extra points for showers) and beds of high quality. Awesome breakfast, totally worth the 6€! We’ll be back.

    The place was very clean and very safe while also being located right near a train stop for easy access. The breakfast was your standard limited hotel breakfast and the bar attached bar was very nice. My only complaints are with the atmosphere as it was pretty dead for my entire stay. Chalk it up to bad timing and covid I suppose, but I didn’t feel like it was a great setup to meet people. I only ever had two others in my dorm and the rest of the building is too large to get to know everyone.

    This is my favourite hostel in Berlin. Have been there 4 times already. Beds are comfy, showers are very good. Buffet breakfast is decent and some of the receptionists are amazing. Walking distance to popular places. Kebab place in the corner is suuuuper cheap ( they also do pizza pasta etc) , it is amazingly good and they open 24/7. Yes, the price could be slightly cheaper for the hostel but it’s worth it.
