Liked: Really cool theme. Free dinner was nice as a money saver. And the 5 euro all you can eat breakfast was fantastic. Always things going on, such as a Monday night there's a free keg of beer at the bar downstairs.

Liked: Fantastic location, very easy to get to any of the major sights in Berlin. Very modern and clean hostel with some nice features such as individual lockers by each bed for valuables. Helpful staff.

Disliked: Limited wifi in rooms, rather noisy if you find yourself in a dorm room on the corner of the building in hot weather and your fellow travellers insist on leaving the room windows open at night.

Liked: Clean, reasonably new condition of building. Maintained well. Good value breakfast.

Disliked: Location, in that there is a tram stop right outside the hostel. Also a lot of sirens blaring in the area throughout the night. It's a good area to stay in, just not in this particular spot on a main intersection. Also, no air conditioning, so really really hot during summer. Having to keep windows open lets in all the noise from people drinking outside and trams/sirens. No common room to hang out in, or Kitchen.

Liked: The bar downstairs was a nice way to start each evening, and the hostel is located centrally enough to easily get to a lot of bars/pubs/attractions. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are big, and the lockers next to each bed were very nice.

Disliked: The Wifi was awful: It only worked sporadically in the lobby, despite Wifi being advertised in the rooms. In addition, when I informed the staff about the problem, they blamed it on my computer. Other than the problems with the Wifi, Circus was great.

Liked: The best hostel I've stayed at. Facilties were clean and spacious. Each bed had its own light and a small locker with an outlet inside, and additional luggage could be secured in large lockers located in the basement. We took advantage of a free (pay what you're willing) walking tour that left from the hostel and the free dinner, which was small but tasty. The bar downstairs had great happy hour prices and was a great place to meet fellow travelers, with free events every night. A 24-hour convenience store across the street, decent wifi, and staff available to answer questions or give suggestions anytime. An excellent hostel in every regard.

Disliked: No complaints.

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.
