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

I have been to many hostels during my travels and rarely do I encounter a really good hostel like this one. The location is great being close to the Metro and other public transportation. In the middle of a bohemian district full of coffee places and bars. Walking distance to the Acropolis and other important sight seeing in the city.... More

Had a great stay here, even though it was for a short time, we were in the heart or close to the heart of all the action we wanted to be!! The rooftop gives a great view of the Parthenon giving you a great chance to photograph it at night!! City circus looks like it's just been refurbished, has an... More

My stay in city circus hostel was my first hostel experience and let's just say that it has set the bar for other hostels! We were greeted by Carmen who was very helpful and the hostel felt like home. Our room was spacious with air con and a safe. The bed comfy and the bathroom adequate for a two night... More

I chose to stay in a hostel to meet people my first night in Athens. I cannot rave enough about this hostel. This was my first existence and they set the bar high. It was in a great location and I was able to walk to and from bars and the major sites in the area. The street surrounding the... More

The City Circus is a beautifully newly-renovated building (or two) in an area which varies from relaxing café strip to down at heel. We were shocked to discover the hostel even has an elevator, a first for us in Greece but a welcome change for the luggage portage. We enjoyed a roomy double with a little balcony over the street....

I stayed here for a night in August 2014. I usually do not stay at hostels. I usually enjoy staying at leading hotels in a certain city but decided to give this a shot as I had friends staying there as well. I have to admit that the accomodations were quite good. It was walking distance to a lot of... More

Definitely more like a hotel than a hostel - rooms were quiet, beds were comfy and it couldn't have been cleaner! Super trendy and nicely decorated too. We were in a 6 bed dorm, and there is a separate room with 2 spacious showers, vanities and a separate bathroom JUST for our room. A complete step up from other hostels... More

We stayed in an 8 bed dorm for 2 nights. The dorm itself was clean and modern and beds were really comfortable. The breakfast which is included is tasty, granola, fruit salad, greek yoghurt, toast & boiled eggs. the location is good with the hostel being a 5min walk from Monastiraki station & the metro is easy to navigate. we...
