Everybody was nice and the room was okay. My friends loved it so we'd come back. There's a lot of things around and you can go from one area to another in a blink. Very well situated and the cleaning staff was lovely.

Vielen dank. Das war sehr bequem und sauber. We had a room for two. Very tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable. It was such a relief to come out of the cold into such a lovely place that really felt like home. We didn't even have to go out at night as there is a bar/brewery downstairs. I really appreciated the...

Circus Berlin was the best hostel me and my partner stayed at during our recent backpack across Europe. We stayed in a 10 person room which was extremely spacious and so clean. The bathrooms were super clean at all times and the building itself modern and enjoyable. The only negative about the room is the lockers are a bit small...

In terms of comfort and cleanliness, the circus hostel gets 5 out 5 stars, or 6 out of 5 even. So clean, so neat, the beds were comfortable, and the pillow beats my one at home by a mile! Lobby, Cafe and brewery were also clean, full of great food and drinks, and friendly, helpful service! We hired bikes from...

For a solo woman traveler this hostel was great. I got a private room which was very basic but comfortable. Plenty of space to spread out, a big window and a safe. The shared bathrooms and showers were a bit far down the hall for me and very basic - but clean. They have towel rental but no hair dryers...

We stayed in a private double room at the hostel. It was modern and very clean with a safe. You get a free small beer in their pub, there is a cafe, Internet, locker facilities and excellent service at reception. We watched the fireworks on New Year's Eve from the hotel terrace with a free glass of bubbly. The area...

A simple and basic hostel with high quality service and cleanness. The location was brilliant. A very friendly staff let me check in immediately, when I arrived earlier than expected. The room was comfortable extremely clean. About 10 rooms in the same floor/corridor, sharing 2 showers and 4 toilets. I shared them with 2 other rooms in a quiet holiday...

I had decided last minute to stay at the Circus Hostel at the recommendation of Euro Hotel's bartender. I was certainly glad I spoke with her because the area surrounding Circus Hostel and Hotel was exactly what I was looking for. Cool restaurants, bars and shopping. The hostel itself was really cool and people were great upon check-in. The only...

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
