I had to write a review, it's been a long time but still remember it as the best hostel I ever stay. I've travel a lot in Europe alone, in Asia and Australia, and this is the best of all. First the breakfast, a buffet-hotel like breakfast! Fresh fruit, greek yogurt with honey, bread, cereal, cheese and ham, everything just... More

Great accommodation, very clean, friendly, dedicated and knowledgeable staff, delicious breakfast, central location, tastefully decorated... the only tiny disadvantage was the very warm bedding which made the warm April nights slightly unbearable. But absolutely to be recommended!

I'm not particularly a fan of hostels. This one has all what people look in hostels (spaces to meet and greet) with all the comfort of a hotel (good baths, towels, etc). The service is very good, the rooms are ample and kept clean. The location is very relevant since it's located near the busiest bar / cafe / restaurant... More

- 5 mins from Metro that took you straight to/from airport - wonderful staff who couldn't do enough for you, any time of the day or night. Very chatty and welcoming - good fresh breakfast (loved the fresh fruit salad, Greek yogurt and boiled eggs) - comfortable beds - beautiful decor - immaculately clean - roof terrace with stunning view...

The staff is caring and liable, the rooms are spacious and clean and we had a marvelous time there! Thank you Jason for suggesting and thank you City circus people! You... More

One of the best hostels I've stayed at. The location is within walking distance of pretty much all of the major tourist sites in Athens, and the area has no shortage of cool shops and restaurants nearby. Facilities were great, and staff was very helpful. The rooftop is a nice bonus!

First off the atmosphere is great - chilled out and conducive to meeting other hostel-goers, and the free drink on Tuesdays/Thursdays definitely helps in this regard. Staff are friendly and helpful, the location is perfect (close to plenty of restaurants/bars, close to Monastiraki Square but the location itself not touristic). The breakfast consisted of bread, cheese, boiled eggs, tea/coffee, various... More

Excellent hostel located in the heart of Athens. Close to everything. The staff was great and willing to help with anything. The rooms were very clean, and had some of the most comfortable beds I've ever experienced in a hostel! There's something going on almost every night, just make sure you are there for tsiporo night! Yiamas!

Excellent Hostel, it is very clean and modern, the dormitories are good and spacious, breakfast is delicious and the staff is nice and generous with advices. Good location not too far from the metro and Monastiraki. There is also a wonderful view on the roof of the Acropolis. To conclude, an super hostel.
