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.

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.
