Liked: Loved the building decorations and the fact that is full of young people hanging in the lobby at all hours. However, just the guests are allowed to the rooms, which made it safe. The rooms were tidy and spacious. The bathroooms very clean. Very festive and cheerfull. Great place to stay spespecially if travelling alone.

Disliked: Jimena left no negative feedback.

Liked: I've stayed at Circus 3 times now and it is always consistently good and excellent value for money. It is comfortable, in an excellent location and clean. My friends and I shared a 4 bed dorm and for 25 Euros a night, it was value for money so that we could have more privacy and comfort than staying in dorms with too many people. I have recommended this place to friends on many occasions.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Good locatiin - close to a lot of bars and restaurants and a 10 minute walk from AlexanderPlatz Fan in room Secure

Disliked: The guy on the desk Steven was pretty moody, maybe having a bad week but never even smiled. There's only one lift for the whole place, plenty of waiting. I know it's not listed as a party hostel but could maybe have some events on

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.
