Located within a 10 minute walk from the Metro station, this tastefully done up hostel can be a charming choice for anyone visiting the monuments and markets in Athens. With wall art on each floor displaying interesting quotes, absolutely neat and clean dormitories with lockers for each guest, a rooftop with the view of the Acropolis, a well stocked kitchen... More

One of the best hostels I ever stayed. Clean, nice colours, good people working there, absolutely amazing view on Acropolis. Rooms are spacious and beds are totally comfortable. Position is in Psyrri, so really the center of the city. No doubts: recommended!

A really outstanding hostel, they've gone to great lengths to make this feel like a homely, stylish and welcoming place. Super-comfy mattresses, lockers in the rooms, and one of the best hostel breakfasts I've ever had. I liked the dining table setup, which puts people into a social eating situation, great way to make friends. Also very close to lots... More

The room was spacious enough for you to move around. It was clean with bathroom attached. Bedsheets were clean. The bathroom was sparkling and spotless. The room is new with everything new in it. The location is great, near to the Monastiraki Square where all the activities start from there. It is within walking distance to Acropolis and Agora and... More

We stayed at City Circus Hostel Athens for one night before heading on to Santorini! The train from the airport took too long (compared to other parts in Europe) so if I had my chance again I would pay the little extra to catch a taxi! The Hostel is a 10 min (at the most) walk from the train station,... More

Stayed here for two nights on our way to Naxos and on our return to Athens. Fairly central location in up and coming area. Wonderfully quirky hostel. Exceptionally clean, super healthy breakfast. Big thanks to Christos Stamelos who went out of his way to find me a dentist for emergency root canal work at 1am. He also organised the taxi.... More

The best hostel I've ever visited. The rooms are amazingly new, the breakfast is fantastic (with Greek yogurt, fruits and honey!) and the decoration is very cute. It's a cozy and warm place for you to sleep whilst visiting Athens. I'm definitely coming back.

I really loved this hostel, its great, clean, friendly staff, amazing breakfast with great Greek Yogurt (Of Course!)... the location is about a 10 minute walk from the metro which goes directly to the port or airport... My biggest complaint is that they charged me 1 Euro to store my bag for three hours when I stayed there 4 nights...... More
