The Circus

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 26, 2008

Really good hostel. Perfect rooms and bathrooms. Internet available in entrance. There is also a coffee shop on the ground floor and a bar in the basement with a shrine to David Hasselhoff. Good central location - about 10 min walk to main attractions. It is located right next to the u-bahn station. I'll be returning next time I'm in Berlin.

A 5* Hostel - Now with a Sibling that is a Hotel

by written on July 30, 2008

What we have here, are a hostel and a hotel, centrally located and affordable, close to many main sights, restaurants and clubs. Getting from and to the airport (both Schoenefeld and Tegel) or central station is dead easy.

--------- The Hostel: ---------

As a (former) Berliner, I have never stayed here, but when you listen to what Berlin travellers have to say about The Circus Hostel, *all* you hear is praise. It's either "good", "very good" or "fantastic". Against the background that ratings for hostels use to differe more heavily than hotel ratings, i guess it's safe to claim that The Circus is one of the best if not the best hostel in Berlin.
At the same time, while affordable, it's not really cheap for a hostel.

--------- The Hotel: ---------

This is the hostel's new sibling, a surprisingly big hotel right/diagonally across the street. I can't say much about it, because it opened only a couple of months before I left Berlin. I'm a bit afraid, though, that you can not sleep with your window open, as the crossroads is heavily frequented.

Directions: Hotel and Hostel are located a little north-west of Alexanderplatz, where the Mitte area borders Prenzlauer Berg.
Rosenthaler Platz subway station is right and your doorstep as is a tram stop.

Hm... I cant beleive I am the first one to write about this hostel. I didnt find any reference in VT. Anyway, so far (say around 8 countries) this is the best hostel I have stayed. Ya, it may change after future travel. But I cant find any fault with this hostel. Perfect in all sense. Its location (right on Rosenthaler Platz, you only need to take few steps from the subway to reach the hostel) really appealed to me. Luckily I got a corner room overlooking the platz (unfortunately got the worst roommates so far, but I cant blame the hostel for that). Very clean, beats lot of motels I have stayed in US hands down. They also have a cafe attached which is convenient (not so convenient that it opens after 8AM). The folks at the reception are really nice and very helpful. ok, enough.

Directions: Get down at the Rosenthaler platz U-bahn station. You will spot it.

Would definatley recommend this hostel. We stayed in an upstairs apartment which was beautifully clean, great facilities, nice balcony. Staff at the hostel were really friendly and helpful. Our only problem was it was very warm and there was only a fan to keep cool - we were up early each morning due to the temperature.

Unique Quality: The apartment had kitchen facilities which was fantastic.

Directions: Subway: "Rosenthaler Platz" (line U8)

Circus Hostel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

I stayed in the Circus hostel for one night on my first trip to Berlin. It's a nice, friendly, reasonably cheap hostel in a good location and I'd strongly recommend it. They have private and shared accommodation available - I stayed in a shared mixed-dorm for 5 people and it cost 18 Euros per night (plus obligatory 2 euros for linen). There is a bar on site, and internet access too, though this is a little bit expensive. The hostel also organises tours of areas of interest in the city.

Directions: U-Bahn: Rosenthalter Platz. Not far from Alexander Platz.
