Liked: They have a great environment, if you are traveling on your own it's try easy to find other travelers.

Disliked: It is pretty noisy, particularly in the lower floors. It is really hard to sleep at night sometimes because of the noises from the cars

Liked: It certainly has character. There are common areas, such as the bar. They rather smartly have plug sockets in the lockers! Bravo. Spacious rooms with tables and chairs to lay things on. Friendly staff.

Disliked: The scattered arrangement of the common areas makes it a little harder to mingle and create atmosphere, though it is still possible. Not much wrong with the place, in all honesty. Perhaps breakfast included, for the price?

Liked: Circus hostel had lots of amazing little bits and pieces that really helped to make you feel at home. There were lockable cubby holes that had electrical sockets inside of them and the beds were very comfortable. At first I thought it would be a problem how few toilets and showers there were but there was never a line, so it all worked out perfectly. The free dinner was good and the breakfast prices were reasonable.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Excellent hostel for meeting people and seeing Berlin! The staff are really friendly and helpful. The hostel organises walking tours, we did the 3.5 hour one and it was a brilliant way to see Berlin, with an amazing guide. The bar is a great way to make new friends and has good offers on drinks. The rooms were clean and spacious.

Disliked: Lockers were quite small.

Liked: Everything looks new, close to subway station, friendly and helpful staff

Disliked: The bunker beds were quite squeaky, every movement me or my "neighbor upstairs" did, we could hear a small symphony. Unfortunately its locations in on a big street crossing, so you can hear the TRAMs down there, so aim for a higher floor :)
