This place seemed to promise a lot in terms of atmosphere and social vibe-- it's called "The Circus" after all. Nothing could really live up to the presentation, but this hostel is good nonetheless. Standard bunk beds, but reading lights and a table are included....More

The price is worthy and the staff help with touist tips.
The location is awesome - just cross the street to arrive at the subway station, nice neighbourhood. Also some coffee shops and snack bars nearby.
Travelling alone in the days before Christmas, the Circus was a great home away from home for a few days. My room, a 4 bed shared room, had HEAPS of space, single beds (no bunks!!!!), lockers and coat hangers. Lamps at each bed we're helpful...More

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.
