The Circus Hostel is ideally located in the centre of Berlin amongst an excellent selection of bars, restaurants, clubs, museums and sights. With the U-Bahn on our front doorstep, all corners of the city are easy to reach.
The hostel is the perfect place for backpackers and travellers to make themselves at home. We offer everything from dorm beds to studio apartments. Our comfy lounge area has a fun and colourful design that is typical to The Circus, and is a friendly place to hang out and meet interesting people from all over the world.
At the Katz & Maus Café our renowned all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet is served late into the early afternoon in case you want a lie in, and downstairs in the bar is our microbrewery, the Circus Hostel Brewing Company, with an exciting and lively atmosphere, and of course our very own beer, to see you through the night.
And as for the cherry on top, we have a wide selection of in-house events to keep you all on your toes, with craft beer nights, live DJs, trivia evenings and sports screenings. There’s never a dull moment at the hostel!
You are always guaranteed the best price and availability when you book directly with us.
We recognise the excellent service that the booking platforms provide, and we are of course excited when guests find us this way, but these services come at a price. Typically, the commissions that are charged on each booking are in the range of 10-20% of the total price of your stay.
We have made the decision to add these commissions to our rates when we sell our beds and rooms through third parties. Many hotels and hostels have been building these commissions into their prices, which has often resulted in price increases for guests on all booking platforms. However, if you book directly with us through our website, by email, or telephone, you are guaranteed the lowest rates.
In addition to this, we can help you, by email or phone, find the greatest selection and availability, as not all our rooms are available through third parties, but rather, with us.
For the full selection and the best price, book direct with us through our website, by telephone or email. We look forward to your reservation!

There are different ways to obtain an emission certificate such as gas stations, garages, online (www.umwelt-plakette.de), and especially for international guests, from the Berlin city government. Note: Other EU countries may have a similar certificate that can be used here also.
For more information about vehicle regulations and the emission certificate see the Visit Berlin website, and do not hesitate to contact us with any of your questions.
