A standout space in Berlin, Circus Hostel has some unexpected extras – like an on-site microbrewery with a bar serving craft beer! We also host the 'Behind the Curtain' programme for trips and events you can't usually find in the city, like art-based tours and nights exploring museums. We've got free walking tours around Berlin's most famous spots too, so you can become an expert on Germany's capital in a couple of hours (OK, almost!). We host live music some nights, as well as pub quizzes to help you meet other travellers.


We're in Mitte, the very centre of Berlin. There are loads of bars, restaurants and clubs within walking distance, and you can get to Museum Island for exhibit-hopping in less than 25 minutes on foot. From Schönefeld Airport, you'll need to jump on the Airport Express to Alexanderplatz. From there, take line U8 on the U-Bahn for two stops towards Wittenau. Exit at Rosenthaler Platz and you'll be a few steps away from the hostel; the journey takes less than an hour all in all.

Rooms and Dorms

Haul your big bag into our elevator to get to your crash pad upstairs, then toss it in the free secure lockers we have in every room. Whether you choose a private room or a pristine mixed dorm, your linen will be included. Each bunk has a reading light, so you can take a look at our free city maps as dusk falls.

Extras and activities

Our décor's as eclectic as a circus itself, with a mix of modern and old-school furniture. The Wi-Fi's fast and free, or you can rent an iPad to get online if you didn't brought your own device. Stomach rumbling? The combined café and lounge restaurant serves made-to-order sandwiches, plus it puts on an all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast until 1pm for just 5 euros. You can borrow our hairdryers and towels too, so you'll save bag space if you're flying with a low-cost airline.

    Great location, friendly staff :) It is very close to the U-bahn and tram station therefore it gets really noisy during the day and night but apart from that I'd consider staying there again.

    Loved our stay here - really spacious beds with big lockers next to them. Bathrooms and showers always kept really clean. Good location (half an hour walk from the central station and 1 minute walk from the metro).

    It’s a really nice hotel, its not a hostel at all, dont have common areas or kitchen. The rooms are really nice and clean, but if you want to party or meet people this is not the right place
