Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a fabulous hot chocolate and a great coffee. Love a humourous sign too. Served by a very helpful and friendly barista.

We went there for drinks on a saturday late night. Nice music, comfortable furniture & nice set up of the bar. However the quality of the drinks is not satisfying: Self-service, we had two glases of Riesling: poor quality, with major taste of sourness. Than...we had a moscow mule presented in a water glass!! altough the bar had moscow mule cups! the mixture was also not very tasty. too much of everything...& the gin tonic was also served in a water glas, with lots of ice cubs....Sorry, but there are better hotel bars.More

The Circus Cafe is a wonderful cafe complete with it's own great cellar bar, it's a place I always look forward to visiting on any holiday I take to this city. The bar looks cool,low lighting creates a cosy atmosphere, nice decor and furnishings including...a cool looking serving bar and some great art work,lots of seating options spread throughout this cafe bar,its just one cool bar. My twin brother Stephen and I were here on a Thursday night, this place was busy,we had a study of the beers on offer and we both opted to have a pale ale each,these were served in excellent condition ,we just kicked back,chilled out and took in the great bar we were in. My pale ale was exceptional, a crisp, hoppy but not over hopped pale ale bursting with taste,very easy to drink,a beer style both myself and my twin brother Stephen are particularly fond of. We really enjoyed our beers in here and although our visit was only fleeting as on every other visit to here we had a great time. The Circus Cafe is easy to locate ,jump the tram to Rosenthaler Platz ( U8 ) and walk over to Weinbergsweg were you will find this cafe bar. Opening hours are; Cafe is open from 8am and the cellar bar is open from 5pm till 2am Monday to Sunday. A superb bar,well worth checking out if your in the area.More

Came here with my sister last week. The staff was super friendly and the paninis we got tasted very fresh. It seems to be a very good place to study or read a book as it is relatively quiet and the food and beverages are...cheap) I think we paid 2,50 for each panini and about 1,50 for a big cup of tea). Definitely recommend this place!!More

Staying at the Circus is always a treat and the cafe and its staff are first class. They will happily go to the closed bar downstairs to get you alcoholic drinks and the continental breakfast buffet they do for the hostel is ace. Eat what...you want, with a brew for 5 euros. Too easy!More

The Circus Cafe is a great cafe & bar which is part of the Circus Hostel. The cafe out front is cool ,serves great coffee but to me it's the bar area in the cellar which is the big draw. A cool looking bar with...eclectic decor and furnishings, nice wall art and staff who are genuinely pleased to see you in their bar. We were here on a Tuesday evening, bar was busy, we got an IPA style beer each, these were served in tip top condition being iced cold and sparkling and we just chilled out and took in the great bar we were in. To say this place is popular would be an understatement and on our visit was absolutely packed with a great atmosphere. My IPA was superb, hoppy and bursting with taste and a very easy to drink beer indeed. We really enjoyed our beers in here and although we only stayed for the one beer before we moved on as on every other visit to here we had a great time. The Circus Hostel is really easy to locate, jump the U8 to Rosenthaler Platz and walk over to Weinbergsweg were you will find this cafe & bar. Opening hours are; Monday to Sunday, 5pm till 2am. A great cafe & bar and well worth checking out.More

A great tucked-away bar in the basement of a hostel/hotel! We went for late-night drinks; all lovely including great cocktails. We visited on a Saturday night and the Scottish Bar Manager was serving the drinks complete with his funky dance-moves! We had a range of...different drinks including cocktails. Well priced and prompt service in a great area.More

I love to visit this bar housed in the Circus Hostel as it has one of the coolest cellar bars in Berlin with its own microbrewery. The Circus Hostel Brewing Co was founded in 2014 and has gone from strength to strength,I love their beers...which are innovative and very tasty. The bar itself is cool ,the basement bar is cozy with a nice serving bar and great cushioned seats scattered around the bar,the tables are awesome,giant old LP records and there's plenty of board games such as chess and draughts to keep you entertained. We were here on a Monday evening and descended the stairwell were after a quick study of the beers on offer my twin brother Stephen and I decided to have Circus beer ,these beers were served in tip top condition being iced cold and sparkling and at €4 A pint great value for a quality craft beer. The beers were outstanding,hoppy and tasty and really refreshing and very easy to drink,we kicked back and chilled out and soaked up the great vibe in this great Brewpub. We ended up staying here for another beer before we moved on and as on every other visit to here we had a great time. Katz & Maus is easy to locate by jumping the U8 to Rosenthaler Platz and walk over to Weinbergsweg were you will find this great Brewpub in the Circus Hostel. Opening hours are; Monday to Sunday,5pm till 2am. A great brewpub and one I highly recommend you visit if your in the area.More

We were guests of the Hostel and the convenience of the breakfast there was something we liked most. Fresh veggies and bakery and a small but good variety of food with an extended time out of average (from 8:00 to 13:00).
