The Perfect Hostel Stay
Great hostel experience! Loved that there was both a cafe and bar inside the hostel. Beds and pillows were super comfortable. Superb location, and walking distance from Distrik Coffee - a great breakfast/brunch café.

Just book here
Amazing location, amazing staff. However your booking systems needs to allow for staff to add notes, my group of 5 who asked prior to booking to be in the same room couldn’t be made possible even though when we arrived there was an empty bed. Don’t ask. Annoying also that the USB ports next to my bunk were broken but none the less it’s a wicked hostel. Great flat white- the little cafe is a god send

Very Good 8.0
Clean Hotel, not a Hostel
The Circus Hostel is NOT A HOSTEL in the traditional sense. It's a cheaper, decent quality hotel. Although there is a brewery/bar, it does not promote a social atmosphere in the traditional hostel sense. It's clean and it 'does the job' for a peaceful night's sleep, but it is not a hostel. The breakfast buffet which costs 5 Euros is average. They are so cheap that they don't offer coffee or tea refills! The only positive I will say about the breakfast is that they have eggs! For as much profit margin as they seem to be getting, the least they could do is provide unlimited coffee.

Great place to stay. Would recommend for location, value for money and everything else you could need in a hotel:) only small negative is slightly noisy room due to the tram outside.

Great hostel, great location!
Such a great hostel! This was my first solo trip and the circus hostel made it so simple. It really helps that it's in a central location. Highly reccomend!

Too Far from Everything but the Wall
The hostel was great, however, the roommates were questionable. Berlin is very spread out and so no matter what location I would have chosen, it would have been far away from things.

Top Quality, great value for money!
Great Hostel, friendly staff, room was spotless, comfortable bed, great value for money. We stayed in a twin private room so didn't see the dorm rooms. Great transport links with a tram and underground station right outside.

Great stay
It was great and one of the best hostels that I’ve ever been to. The staff was amazingly nice and accommodating. They always took a bit of their time to get to know the occupants.
