Liked: The best hostel I have ever stayed in. The location could not be better, right next to the U-Bahn, Tram, Bus stops & about a ten minute to Alexanderplatz. The room was great, wasn't crowded at all, and the plugs in the lockers were a massive bonus. Very secure, you needed a card to get up to the floors with the rooms in, the again to get to the rooms, then again to get into the room. Showers were great and warm, stayed on and you didn't have to keep pressing a button. Very clean toilets and showers. Social wise, I made loads of friends here as I was travelling alone. The social areas are really nicely set up with loads of comfy seating. Good wifi too. Nice smoking area. I had the Kat & Maus burger, reasonably priced food and drinks, and it was all super tasty. The staff were very helpful, especially the idea about the cards telling you how to get to places like ZOB. The girl who worked in the cafe from Edinburgh was lovely , really chatty and she even gave me a little paper bag for my sandwiches for my coach to Munich. Free keg of beer on Thursdays was great. Everyone got down to the bar for it. I've stayed in hostels in both Berlin and around the world and this place really stands out. If you're staying in Berljn and you're contemplating staying elsewhere then you're making a massive mistake. Stay at Circus hostel, you won't regret it

Disliked: I can't think if anything bad about this place at all.

Liked: The lobby + cafe + bar area downstairs was perfect for socializing. People from other hostels would come to ours to hang out and meet people. Location is great because it's right next to Rosenthalerplatz U-Bahn (the Metro). Easy to get to the airport, even at night. Also loved the lockers in the rooms with the outlet inside. Best hostel I've ever stayed in.

Disliked: Absolutely nothing bad to say.

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.
