Traveled in late November alone, first time staying in a hostel so I was very nervous. Thankfully The Circus was very friendly and helpful with any question or request I had. Also met a lot of friendly guests (most also traveling alone) in the lobby, the all you can eat breakfast (€5) and the free (should tip the guide) walking...

I and my best friend spent 3 nights in a double room (with shared facilities) and I'm really happy that I decided to stay in this hostel! As other people already mentioned: the hostel is very well located (not far from Alexanderplatz), the staff was very kind (I misunderstood the check-out time so I was a bit late and a...

This hostel was a brilliant choice for our 5 night stay in Berlin. My partner and I stayed in a deluxe apartment with a fully equipped kitchen. Everything worked perfectly. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The pillows were very BAD though. They have a great heating system so it was always toasty warm! The location is mint! There are...

A subway station in the corner. Very nice structure (rooms and bathrooms). Security. It is always clean and organized. It is not a...

I've stayed at the Circus Hostel twice now, as well as other hostels in Berlin, and it is definitely the stand out. Perfectly located with a U-Bahn station and the M8 tram right outside, which takes you to the Hauptbahnhof. Also has kiosks, great food and shopping on it's doorstep. My 4-5 bed dorm was very clean, comfy and had...

We stayed in a private (shared Bathroom) and were quite happy. Rooms are well equipped, clean and just big enough for two. Staff is nice.There's a a free save in the closet and a nice table for two to have dinner, if wanted. Location is super great, in Mitte and everything is close. We would def reccomend to stay here

We stayed here in a private double room for 2 nights in June 2016. Great location to be able to walk / train to all the places we wanted to see. There were also some really cool bars and restaurants close by and the Patergaten was walking distance. Rooms and the shared bathrooms were very clean and it didnt feel...

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.
