There's extremely few bad things to say about City Circus, and they're rather nitpicky, they're so minor compared to all the other great aspects of this wonderful place. Firstly, don't let yourself be freaked out by the area at first - it's a great spot so close to the attractions and nightlife you're really spoilt for choice with places to... More

This hostel is in an excellent location, within walking distance of all the major sights and public transportation. The hostel was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. Large lockers were available for everyone. Breakfast was about average to slightly above average. I would stay here again.

We come from Vietnam where the nightlife in our old town pretty much resemble to Athen's. We -found it's incredible home-like while walking in this area. Location is also good for backpacker as it's very easy to walk to Acropolis. The hostel service is very good and professional.

We are a couple in our early thirties who were looking for well priced, clean, well located accommodation option in Athens - this place was perfect! Perfect location (we walked to all the sights, lots of great food options nearby), nice atmosphere and friendly/helpful staff (laundry service for €7 euro was a bonus). Our private room with own bathroom was... More

Breakfast is good. Daily activities look fun. wifi connection is good. Daily cleaning. Individual locker in each dorm is big. 24 hours reception. Everything is functioning quite... More

It's my first real hostel stay. I like the high ceilings and wooden window frames of my twin sized ensuite room. It reminds me of my dorm, with noise level on a weekend to match (I believe this is expected at a hostel, just that it's my first hostel experience). The beddings are very comfy. The bathroom is generally clean.... More

i'm staying here with my son for a few days; this is my first hostel experience. I'm so pleased with the accommodations! The place is very clean, and the staff is friendly and helpful. They have it nicely decorated for Christmas, and Christmas music plays in the background of the common areas. We are staying in an 8 ensuite, which... More

One of the best hostels I've stayed in all year. Clean rooms, comfortable beds and friendly staff. Breakfast included is great and the hostel has great activities to engage the guests with each other (cooking classes, movie nights and walking tours). Highly recommend this place when in Athens!

Location: + 5-10min walk from 2 metro stations + Walking distance to attractions (Acropolis, Monastiraki square, Hadrian's Library, Roman Agora, Ancient Agora) & restaurants/bars - Pathways on the street to this hostel are quite narrow, as like most ones in Athens :) (may be tricky in peak season with a suitcase) Service: + Friendly, helpful staff + Very nice breakfast...

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. Safe, clean, secure, decently priced, and with great staff, city circus has the best possible location you could ask for in Athens. The bed is super comfy, and the toilets spotlessly clean. Easy to get to from the Metro, City Circus has fantastic free wifi and staff that know everything... More
