Circus Berlin Hostel

Welcome To The Circus Hostel

Welcome to your Berlin starting point!

In the heart of Berlin, on a crossroads where hip galleries meet high fashion spots and great restaurants, a building full of history is towering over the vibrant square of Rosenthaler Platz. Welcome to The Circus Hostel! Looking for staff that treat you like family? We have it! Or do you prefer meeting other travelers over a pint of good homebrewed beer? Come down to the Microbrewery and test our brewing skills!

After a great night's sleep in our custom designed Perfect Dorm beds, start your day with one of our breakfast options that includes a take-away option (from 8-13h) then step out and explore Berlin with our Behind The Curtain program or join our free city walking tour departing daily from our hostel. Add the famously weird Hoff Museum and weekly bar events and the only question remaining is - what more could you ask for?

If you’re into hitting Berlin’s famous party scene, the metro U8 line stop is literally in front of our door and will take you straight to Kreuzberg and Neukölln. In short, staying with us means great people, effortless exploring and a guarantee of an unforgettable Berlin experience!
