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.

    This hostel is the epitome of what I think could be the best hostel ever. The staff was amazing, great beer and the rooms were nice and spacious! It does get out outside which carries into the room and the breakfast was sub par for me but it has everything else that I looked for in a hostel. Will recommend this to anyone who thinks about traveling in Berlin!

    Great hostel: very cool interior design, comfortable facilities and lots of thoughtful extra activities arranged for the guests - I went on a kayak tour, which was really fun! GREAT buzzing location right in the centre of Berlin, with lots of awesome cafes, restaurants and bars within walking distance. Would stay here again.

    Had a great time here in Berlin at this Hostel! Only complaint would be that the lockers didn't fit my lock and had to buy another that did downstairs.

    One of the best hostels I’ve stayed at. Highly recommend. Fun, safe, lots of suggested activities, food, drinks, close location to attractions. I’ll be back. Only reason I gave a 3/5 on staff is being there were a few rude employees toward me and friends.

    Pros:nice big rooms (8bed), outlets by beds, lockers in room, lots of restaurants and cafes close by, good atmosphere for solo traveler, bed and pillows were comfy Cons: at least 2-3km to most major attractions (will usually have to take public transport), bathrooms constantly didn’t have toilet paper, no kitchen, have to pay for luggage storage (before and after checkout) I enjoyed overall, would ideally stay somewhere closer next time.

    Tons of street noise all night long made it difficult to sleep. There is an extra charge for use of towels and padlocks. No paper towels in bathroons, presumably because of towel rental.
