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.

    One of the best hostels I've stayed in. Cheap, clean and comfortable with all the guests needs considered. Only complaint would be lack of air con in rooms, We opened the windows but the busy location meant it was very loud at night.

    Modern hostel in a central location close to subway and tram station. Rooms and bathrooms are clean, staff is friendly and helpful. There's a nice seating area inside/outside and a bar downstairs with microbrewery to meet other travellers. Bring earplugs, because it can be noisy outside, the hostel provides them for free. The lockers are spacious enough to put away your stuff (bring a padlock), there's a safe at the reception to put away valuables as well.

    Circus hostel has a lot going for it, but there’s a trade off to being right in the heart of a trendy area on a main thoroughfare - noise - from trams, traffic and the loudest police/ambulance sirens you’ve ever heard. Even with earplugs if you’re unlucky enough to end up in a room facing the road your sleep is bound to be less than peaceful, especially if the weather’s warm and you need to keep the windows open for coolness. It’s too bad because it really does have a lot going for it otherwise

    A great location. The room itself (10 bed mixed dorm) did not feel cramped and the beds were comfy enough. However the rooms were quite loud from the main road sounds if you wanted to shut the windows, though they provide ear plugs. The breakfast is a good deal, never checked out the bar as it was closed most nights I was there. Convenient kiosk right across the street and access to bars and food within steps.

    Please get a water fountain!! Don’t need a kitchen but would be super handy to have a tap to fill water bottles (save the planet!). Super modern and nice hostel, was really comfortable however for the high turn over of people the rooms and bathrooms could be cleaned more (but they were still a good standard). The bar was a bit dead but there’s a nice outside area where you can drink your own beers and mingle with other travellers

    Very Good

    Enjoyed our stay in this hostel as it’s very modern and has a lot of security as you have to scan your key card at each door and even at the lift which isn’t common amongst hostels. Unfortunately the rooms do not have air conditioning so can be quite sweaty at night time as the windows don’t open fully either so in a room of 6 night time from May onwards can be quite stifling. Overall the all you can eat offer for breakfast was good and the hostel is right across from the metro which was great
