If you come by the Circus Hostel over the next couple of weeks you will see members of the Circus team and some skilled craftspeople working hard at improving our reception area and lobby on the ground floor. As always we are full of ideas as to how we can make the hostel better, whether in terms of facilities or services, and we decided that now was the time to put some of those ideas into action. As well as new social spaces in the lobby area we will be remodeling the reception, and with the improvements we will also be developing some new services and ideas as we move into 2013. Of course, this remodeling work will cause a little bit of disruption for those who will be coming to stay with us over the next couple of weeks, but we have put together a number of special treats as a way of thanking you all for your understanding.
Some would say a hostel with a reduced lobby is like a pub with no beer… actually, that was our Entertainment Manager Andrew who– as an Australian – can be forgiven for busting out the Slim Dusty now and again, but in actual fact we DO HAVE BEER, and not only that we are offering up a free keg down in Goldman’s Bar for hostel guests every night at 8pm for the duration of the improvements work. Added to that we have a free dinner in the Circus Café each evening at 6pm, so you can certainly – ahem – fill yo’ belly fo’ free.
And because we also want you to fill your mind as well as your stomach, Andrew and Jimbo have come up with a series of excellent free tours on Tuesdays and Thursdays to some of those places in Berlin that you might not find on your own… 2013 is going to be another great year at the Circus, and we will have some pictures of the new look reception and lounge area, both in the remodeling process and once it is all done, over the next couple of weeks.
