The Circus Hostel

The Circus Hostel

The Circus Hostel on Rosenthaler Platz in Berlin-Mitte has become legendary! From the impressive all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet to the in-house microbrewery, this vibrant hostel has a lot to offer!

Quality is essential to The Circus. The hostel is not only a place to sleep, but you can also rent iPods filled with Berlin music, classic Berlin films on DVD such as Good Bye Lenin, and the friendly team is there to help day and night.

The entertainment team organises a wide variety of events and gives you an insight into the fast pace of Berlin. Once a month, The Circus welcomes a contemporary witness who has lived through the Second World War, or the time of The Wall, to speak about their experience. There is also a great selection of tours including one that takes you through the ins and outs of the Berlin street food scene, or the underground street art scene.

By the way: the hostel underwent extensive renovations in 2014 and each room is individually designed with attention to detail and the typical colourful design synonymous with The Circus.
