Overview

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.

Location

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.

    Exceeded expectations! Circus hostel is in a bustling area and the U8 is a great transit line to be near. Plenty of food nearby, clean rooms, well-designed bunk bed with some privacy (like half covered), bike rentals, friendly staff, decent breakfast. Wifi is kinda slow from the furthest rooms. December is a quiet month, but there was always 1 or 2 people in the lobby to make aquanitances. A whole range from euopean toursts to adventurous interntional businessmen.

    Circus was one of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed in! Really clean, amazing location next to a tram and U-Bahn stop, and incredibly well equipped. The staff were the absolute best - they were always helpful and happy to offer recommendations for things to do. If I HAD to pick one thing to criticise, it’s that there are no real social spaces apart from the bar, but I still met people (and I wasn’t travelling alone so it wasn’t a big issue). Would definitely stay here again!

    Amazing place to stay. The rooms are designed travelers in mind with a lot of space to hang your clothing and put your items safely. Only feedback I would give is the lack of ventilation in rooms. I was there during december so pretty cold and had to keep the windows close but this resulted is difficulty to inhale clean air in the morning. Gets worse when the room is full of people.

    The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable! I stayed in the 8 person room and met some fun people while there. With 8 people the room it got pretty boiling hot by about 3-4am, but opening a window sorted that out pretty well (not sure how well that'd work in the summer however.) Showers were very clean, toilet was a bit far down the hall but not a problem. Slightly pricier than other places but good. Wish there was some catering facilities.

    Built on a brewery. Good security and bedspace. Good location. Breakfast a bit tight for space, but well stocked Continental style. Must try the Brewer's Free Walking tour!

    Exceptional cleanliness and super convenient location. Good breakfast with 5 euro. When it comes to disadvantages, I have to mention unstable internet connection on the 3rd floor. Overall, one of the best hostel that I have ever stayed at. Good job guys!
