    One of the best reviewed hostels in the world and for good reason. The hostel is clean, smoothly run, and have great beds to boot. It is a convenient location to get on the U-Bahn and explore the city. Try the breakfast at the dining room next door. It is one of the better hostel breakfasts available.

    I got stuck in Berlin a couple years back after missing a train to Ukraine. I ended up passing a pleasant night at the Circus Hostel, and having a little tour of Berlin. It was clean and pleasant and central and cheap. Perfect.

    Great hotel, in a fantastic location for exploring Berlin - stepping outside will lead you up Kastanienallee to Prenzlauer Berg, or down Rosenthaler Straße to Hackescher Markt. The rooms are comfortable and modern, the staff is friendly and the downstairs bar is great. Their breakfasts are great, but if you stay there make sure you visit Gorki Park for your brekkie at least once (though once you go one time, you may find yourself back there again). It's just across Rosenthaler Platz.

    ... asking something to the bartender feels like your being the last piece of junk in the world...

    A very cool looking hostel, full of open and young internationals. The people working there are multilingual and are ready to help you with some insider tips. The location is simply perfect (very central and next to shops and bars) and so is the price. If you are visiting Berlin alone I think this is a great starting point. They help guests out with interesting tours and bike rental and have a lively bar downstairs.

    I visited Berlin with my German class last year so to save cash we opted for somewhere cheap and centrally located and we were lucky to have had Circus Hostel booked on our behalf. Rooms were warm, clean, quiet (Circus is on a very busy intersection by Rosenthaler Platz but the windows kept the noise out) and modestly priced.

    The hostel is definitely a choice for younger travelers, the downstairs bar was rowdy at night but always good natured during our stay, with open mic sessions and friendly bar staff. The Circus Hotel (directly opposite) looked like a more highbrow establishment but I had no qualms with our cheap and cheerful hostel and would definitely stay there again.

    Possibly the best hostel I've stayed.
