Dorms €19+; Private €53


Located in a building from the early 20th century which was completely renovated in 2001, the Circus Hostel dominates the "Rosenthaler Platz" in Berlin's pounding heart - "Mitte".

The mirror of Europe's 20th century history, after the fall of the wall , Berlin is Europe's most dynamic capital and is famous for its extroverted nightlife, cultural scene, architecture and lively crowd.
Mitte has most of the cultural and nightlife attractions and the hostel is legendary for its helpful staff and knowledge of the city.

The Circus Hostel offers a wide range of accommodation, from a bed in a dorm to the apartments with a breathtaking view over the city. The hostel reception staff help you with any questions you might have, provide you with all info concerning Berlin, and can give you help with visa-information, bookings for your next stop etc. There is also the hostel's famous all-you-can-eat breakfast till 1pm as well as evening meals served in the Circus(Street)Cafè.

If you wish to meet fellow travelers or fellow Berliners, Goldman's Bar in the Circus basement is your place to go. DJ's and daily changing events (Karaoke, Party, open-mic-nights, live sport-events...), and the Circus Guestcard helps you saving money on clubs, restaurants, money exchange etc.

Free luggage Room for backpacks and valuables,
Free hostel bookings and info for your next destination
In the heart of Mitte, the hostel is walking distance to endless nightlife, cafes, bars, cultural attractions and great shops.

Public Transportation in Berlin is easy, safe and usually runs late into the night.

You can reach all stops inside the city limits with tickets of the zone "AB". Tickets are valid for bus, subway, S-Bahn and Tram (Streetcar). Changes are allowed. The cost for a single journey AB is €2,10 euro. A day pass AB is €5,80 euro. So it makes sense to buy a day pass if you are planning three or more journeys a day. Make sure that you validate (stamp) the ticket before you get on the train!

>From Hauptbahnhof (Lehrter Bahnhof)

There are two possibilities: Bus or train.

The bus number 240 leaves from in front of the train station. Get off at “Rosenthaler Platz” (bus takes around 10 minutes). The stop is across the street from the hostel.The bus runs regularly during the day, but in the evening the S-Bahn is a good idea.

The first thing you need to do is follow the signs to the S-Bahn (green circle with a white S in the middle). Take any eastbound S-Bahn and get out at “Alexanderplatz”. Here you need to transfer to the U-Bahnlinie U8. Take the U8 towards "Wittenau" for two stops to the station "Rosenthaler Platz".
