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.

    Fantastic experience from check in to check out. The staff was great. Super helpful trouble-shooting some issues with transit closures. The rooms are great. Super clean and give you a sense of privacy even in the larger forms. Definitely would recommend to friends and stay here again myself.

    This is actually a really luxurious hostel - the rooms and big and clean, and the beds are comfy with a privacy ‘roof’ for when you sleep. Communal showers and toilets were always clean and the downstairs bar was fun! Would take the front desk up on free earplugs in case of a snorer, or if you want your window open while you sleep - literally the only ‘negative’ is that the street outside is pretty loud at all hours. Overall, would recommend!

    This was a pretty good hostel to stay at. The bar was great to meet people, but the lack of kitchen, even a place to store food in a fridge, was lacking. That being said, the 5 euro breakfast was really good! The 10 bed dorm was really nice and surprisingly quiet to sleep through, which was really good. Location was not an issue as you're close to everything and only 30 minutes via public transport to regal airport. Overall I would mostly likely stay here again!

    ANNA, was the best receptionist i have ever come to talk to! A few of us arrived earlier than the expected check in time (like hours before) and we were all exhausted (dozing off on the couches) and she was quick and put all of us in our rooms as fast as she could! Overall, my stay here was nice! If u are sightseeing and enjoy just the day activity and go back to a quite room. Then this is perfect.The only pain was waiting for the elevator, u can take the stairs but it doesn't go to main lobby.

    Good hostel very clean and well maintained. The only problem we had was that the power went out in a few of our beds so the lights and plugs wouldn't work and we asked reception to fix it which they said they would but didn't in the end. Also the light was hanging off the wall in a few of the beds in my room when we got there but again not a bit issue.

    Very clean and lively hostel in Berlin. The rooms are very spacious. Wasn’t a fan of having to pay to store my luggage before check in. Good location about 30 minutes walk from the main train station and Brandenburg Gate. No kitchen or laundry service which was a bit of a shame.
