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.

    This was honestly one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in and probably also one of the cheapest. The staff was super nice and helpful, the rooms surprisingly big and the beds were cozy. I can not name anything that was not optimal!

    The hostel staff was super nice and helpful!! I had no problem finding friends to hang out with while traveling alone here. The atmosphere was super quiet during the week but really lively on the weekend. Great food all around the hostel and you can easily walk to the Berlin Wall memorial or take a tram / underground anywhere. Would 100% stay again if in Berlin again. Thank you for everything!!

    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!

    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!

    Really clean, very nice hostel. Breakfast was only €5, the bed was comfy enough and they had plenty of lockers. A bit of a walk to get to most of the sights, but for the price and quality, worth it.

    Pretty good hostel - their circus beer is great and their bar downstairs is alright. Not the best atmosphere but also not the worst. Huge downfall is how loud it is in the rooms from having a busy intersection right outside. Earplugs can’t even save you. Also the storage lockers in the rooms are a bit different so you will most likely need to purchase one of their circus locks if you want to secure your belongings. Overall a decent hostel but you can probably find better.

    Definitely more hotel than hostel. Lack of atmosphere. Bathrooms could be looked after a little more (clogged toilets & no soap during the entirety of the stay). Rooms were spacious. Location is great.
