Neighbourhood
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.

We stayed 4 nights in the Circus Hotel. It was quirky but very comfortable, the staff were very accommodating and helpful. It is very well situated for sightseeing with the underground and trams close by. I would highly recommend the Circus Hotel.

Absolutely great place! Reasonable prices, very clean and secure. An U-Bahn stop and tram and bus stops literally outside the door. Excellent 5-euro breakfast, very helpful 24-hour staff and a bar in basement. Plus David Hasselhoff fans.

The whole hostel is great but the highlight of this place is definitely the bar downstairs. Best beer I've ever had. Callum the bartender is an absolute legend. I would recommend staying here just for the bar.

Berlin is a great city and The Circus Hostel is a great place to stay in the German capital. Located right at Rosenthaler Platz (with trams and metro right outside the door), you probably won’t find a better location in Berlin - especially as the...More

Forgot to say... The Circus is in a really good district of the centre & they do free walking tours ever day, which take in many of the important sights.
