A very good find. Such good value for a good standard hostel. Check out the roof top view. Breakfast was really good and staff very friendly and helpful. NeaR to the main square and a short walk from shops and attractions.

The place has an amazing location with lots of restaurants around and not far from Acropolis. The staff was always really happy and really lovely. Just great! Also they always had a lot of plans and the wifi was really good.

I have stayed in lots of hostels around the world and this is genuinely one of the best I've experienced. We stayed a few nights here before heading off to the Dodecanese and it was great. Clean, modern, really nicely done. Actually, it's better than some hotels I've stayed in. Definitely highly recommended!

Excellent hostel in a great location! Staff were very friendly and helpful. It's within walking distance to all the major attractions in Athens and very close to the metro. Rooms were very clean and it's a great place to stay if you want to meet a lot of people!

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

Located in a cool area (Psyrri/Psyri ?) Touristy spots are beyond Ermou street from this hostel but my Greek friend usually shows me Psyri area. All reviews are quite correct. Very comfy hostel. 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
