This is the second time that we have stayed at Circus. This time we splurged and got an apartment. It was fantastic. A full kitchen, big bathroom, a comfy bed, lounge chairs, a dining area, and a balcony opening onto the inner courtyard. And it was still cheaper than most places.

Tons of services - you can 'rent' a transit pass for the day; they sell bottled water, which was great; you can borrow hair dryers and hair straighteners for a small deposit (which you get back when you return them). The cafe is great and there are tons of fantastic restos around the area. Online at Circus' website they have PDFs of walking tours - highly recommend having them print the map out and try them - you will discover so many cool places that you might not otherwise.

And be sure to do one of the Brewer's walking tours - the 8 hour one is tiring but comprehensive and really fun.

This hostel deserves all of the kudos you see here - it is really exceptional and I will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the inner courtyard tend to be quieter.

It was almost as good as a hotel except for no tv or shampoo. It had excellent security, great amenities like the bar and the cafe. Would go again.

The hostel was like a four star hotel. Spotless. New. Fantastic staff who helped plan your days, transport etc and later asked how your day was. Cheap, cheap cafe joined to the hostel. Nice area. Laundry around the corner. Metro out the front. Great wifi in the room. Lovely chairs and tables in the sun out the front of the hostel.

But...the doors are off e ground and for some reason you cannot close them without the door making a really loud bang which, in the rooms, sounds like it is right next to you. I noticed other reviewers have raised this problem. I didn't get any sleep for this reason. I was also kept awake by people s reaming and running around. I would. It have heard this, quite as much, if the doors kept more noise out. If closers are put on the doors so they don't bang everytime someone goes not or out of their room, a toilet, the bathroom or into and out of the hallway the place will be amazing.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as far away from the main hallway/stairwell. However the door noise was as loud further down the hall.

It was my second time at Circus. Wow ! It is definetely one of the best hostel i´ve ever stayed. Clean, Cheap, Fun .. you really feel that your money worths ... Staff is very friendly and always at your disposal ... they really have a real smile in their faces .. roosm are big, confortable and clean .. for me it is almost a hotel ... actually better than hotels i´ve stayed in other countries ... I shared a twin room with a friend and I strongly reccomend you to stay there ... it is very close of a tube station and don´t forget .. in Berlin on fridays and saturdays tubes don´t close .. so you are always close to Circus ... I hope being in marvelous Berlin again soon and Circus will be my choice.

We have been travelling for 6weeks now in hostels and circus has been the best yet! Local is great, close to the trains and trams, great food places around (especially as breakfast is not included here like many good hotels!).
Staff were friendly, bar doesn't open until 9pm but that's just Berlin! Can easily buy drinks from reception, beds were comfy, toilets and showers were plentiful and clean. Highly recommend!
