I booked a hostel on the far northwestern side of Berlin that wasn't up to my standards, and I am SO thankful to have found the Circus Hostel in the wonderful area of Alexanderplatz. It was so much closer to all of the tourist attractions - just a short metro ride away. The staff were very considerate and kind. The...

Stayed in a private room with a shared bedroom. Location of the Hostel is great with Metro Station, Tram & Bus stop just outside. Plenty of bars and food outlets nearby. Hostel was safe, secure, clean and with very helpful staff. Free wifi which was excellent. Coffee bar attached to the Hostel is great and they serve the breakfast here...

The room was clean and well designed. The bathrooms were fine, the showers were a little small but functional. The hostel really shines in two ways - the location was unbeatable (really!) and the staff were both helpful and knowledgable. The bar downstairs was cute, and fun to hang out in early in the night, but expensive by local standards....

My partner and I stayed in a double room that was gorgeously decorated and well-furnished. We booked in advance and secured a very cheap price so it was so worth it! The hostel is very trendy, bright and modern and has excellent security. The wifi connection was excellent and we had a nice view from our big window. We were...

Stayed here as 2 young girls travelling by ourselves. We stayed in a private 2 person room. The room was a decent size, very clean and the bed was extremely comfy. Felt very safe with the amount of security required to get into each part of the building, rooms and the lift. The brewery downstairs and the Free Walking Tour...

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...

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.
