I‘d definitely recommend the place.

The location is great, well connected and plenty of options for things to do around the hostel area. The staff was super friendly, the breakfast was excellent and there is a pub on the basement which is really nice if you want to grab a chilled drink .

wonderful modern place with original design and good vibe, clean

I liked everything about this hostel! All spaces are clean, spacious. The lobby is noisy, but the vibe is wonderful, there is a bar with karaoke with a free beer. The chamber was comfy and calm, no noises. Staff and guests were very polite and friendly. The breakfast has a good variety of dishes, very tasteful!

nothing to mention here

The infrastructures are new. They even offered me a coupon for the beer brewed in the bar underground. Super tasty. The location is also very nice!


14 January 2024


Lovely room on the fifth floor, nice view and clean bathroom.

The mattress on the bed was bit soft for me


13 January 2024

clean, spacious and great location

room was clean and spacious. bathroom was clean. rooms are cleaned everyday (private room with private bathroom - not sure about other rooms). hostel is right next to the U-Bahn (underground rail), tram and bus stops. can reach berlin central station in 15 mins via public transport. staff were helpful and accommodating. the hostel has great events where you can meet people.

social energy in the hostel was a bit quiet. there wasn't a proper open space area for hostel travellers to chat and mingle with others apart from the lobby and downstairs bar which was oftentimes quiet. this might be because it was the period after xmas and new years.


11 January 2024

Very good

We were upgraded to their nicest room so it was lovely.

There were limited shared facilities. No kitchen or laundry and limited showers and toilets for shared use.

clean, many bathrooms for a hostel, affordable towels

beds could use curtains


4 January 2024

The best choice at the right price.

My friends and I loved staying at this hostel. The staff was very friendly and we received a welcome drink. Hostel with excellent location, safe, clean and spacious rooms. The bathroom structure and showers are very good and met our need. We sent a message in advance and they were able to allocate my group of friends to the same room, making our experience even more enjoyable. Tks for all.

Breakfast had a good selection The beds were comfortable with heavy curtains to block out light Great location to restaurants and bars and train lines The bar had an amazing mock tail with balsamic and vanilla. The staff was very friendly Luggage storage is free but you have to go through some stairs Highly recommend Zeit Fur Brot for cinnamon rolls

There aren’t very large opens spaces to relax

Just excellent!

The breakfast was indeed fabulous. The facilities were just perfect. The staff were super friendly

The bedside usb sockets were not working. Had to queue several times to get a vacant toilet, but it's not a big deal


29 December 2023

Lives up to expectations

Beds feel private even in a dorm. Bathrooms were quite clean. The breakfast spread was one of the best I’ve ever had. Location is just near the tram and U-bahn stop. The bar downstairs was quite happening. The Circus beer is a must try.

The mattress could be a bit more comfortable. Also it would be helpful to have a charging point for iPhones near the bed.

Friendly staff, cool people, excellent cocktails

EVERYTHING! The staff were super friendly and helpful from the cafe, reception and bar. The other guests were super cool and fun, met lots of friends. It was a party youth type of hostel to me.

Being honest, nothing was bad! Everything was perfect to a youth party hostel.


25 December 2023

Circus Hostel has been one of the best for many years.

Location and the facilities are good, with cafe and bar onsite.


24 December 2023


Location next to rossenthaler platz was very convenient. Bed was comfy. Room was clean. Staff were helpful. Cafe open late each day.

Slightly noisy doors that woke me up a few times but I'd expect similar in any hostel/hotel. A little more info from the staff on arrival about facilities/amenities and things to do in Berlin as well as transport info would have been welcomed.


23 December 2023

Fantastic/clean Hostel

Everything was super clean and spacious! The location was great because if it was too far to walk any tram/bus you might need is only a 5 minute walk away. Everyone was super respectful in the room and the lockers were quite spacious. Also if you get there before check in they have small and large lockers to store your stuff which was nice! Showers have great pressure and temperature.



22 December 2023

Beautiful stay, would definitely recommend

Very clean, huge room (twin room with ensuite). Shower had the best water pressure. Staff were lovely. Good walking distance to many locations. Right next to tram and train station

Squeaky bed and the tram can be quite loud at night


21 December 2023

Experiencia increíble

Excellent accommodation, the breakfast service is superb, the bathrooms, despite being shared, are always clean. The location is incredible and very close to everything. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would return to this hostel a thousand times over.

I would have liked to see Kartoffelsalat or Currywurst on the breakfast buffet, a bit of the original German cuisine. Nonetheless, the breakfast was AMAZING.


20 December 2023

The staff was really nice and helpful. Luv you guys.

The breakfast it's good and varied for 8 euros.

Slow elevator and expensive drinks at the bar's hostel.


18 December 2023


I love everything about this hostel, the best I've been to! There r so many events throughout the week, and the hostel bar, where you can meet other people :)

Loved everything


18 December 2023

Very good

The majority of the staff were courteous, and the breakfast, although simple, met my needs. The hostel's location is bustling, so there is some noise from the tram, but they provided earplugs.

the room was cold at night.

Weekend in Berlin

Compact, well thought-out space, excellent location

Great hostel with everything you need!

We had the double bedroom. It was clean, well equipped with a table, wardrobe, and the bed was comfortable. The internet was really fast, great if you need to work remote. Best of all was the location: everything you need is reachable under 5minutes!

Everything was great.
