Cool fun hostel
Clean and quirky, thought it was cool. We had a private room with shared bathroom and it was fine. Bit hot in rooms though and not even peak season. Check the flyers there too as we found a great walking tour and pub crawl.

Clean and Comfortable
Location, aesthetics, and atmosphere
My stay at the Circus Hostel was great! When searching for a good hostel for any of my adventures cleanliness, location, and atmosphere top my list of must-haves. Circus is in a great location with public transportation stops just steps outside of the front door. The beds were comfortable and the cleanliness of the rooms and bathrooms was well maintained. The lobby, which also served as a common area, was welcoming and had plenty of seating. I would definitely stay here again!

Great for backpackers
breakfast, friendly staff, bar
Had a great stay! Staff were competent and helpful. Breakfast was awesome! Also there is there own bar downstairs. Its quite a buzzing place with backpackers and travelers coming to meet (and steal the wifi) The rooms were small but clean. Just a little noisy outside when you open the window. Also, try get a room close to the bathrooms (I hate walking down a whole passage at 3am for the toilet). Bathrooms were clean and showers private so no worries with it being public. Definitely a win!

vibrant , good location
the breakfast , the location , young crowd
The hostel was located very close to the train station and trams . Breakfast was good . But there was no access to a kitchen and no lockers for bags in the rooms,luckily i didnt have problems with missing things.The showers were oddly located above the water drainage , making it very hard to stand below the shower head as then you would be standing on the water drainage hole , thus making showering unpleasant

Great location to take in the wonders of Berlin
Great location, staff and breakfasts!
We stayed 3 nights on a short city break. The hostel is 2 stations north of Alexanderplatz and is a great central location. The staff we were great, very knowledgeable and helpful during our stay. They can practically organise anything for you and has a 24 hour reception as well. The rooms/shared showers/toilets were absolutely spotless at all times. the beds were comfy and also has lockable cabinets to keep your valuables safe. They have a fantastic buffet breakfast in the adjoining cafe for 5 euro and very filling. The major downside to a place like this is the noise. We were on the 4th floor and there was a huge amount of door slamming night and day as well as the road noise/trams at ground level.

Berlin is amazing! Expected more from the Hostel
Location location location
The staff were very unhelpful and didn't have good knowledge of the city, tours etc. Our floor was very noisy! Even after 1am. The wifi rarely connected and we had to ask for help on numerous occasions , often finding they couldn't help and working it out ourselves , very frustrating! Wifi didn't reach our room. Overall a disappointing stay as we had heard so many good reviews!
