We stayed in a private room and we were completely happy with everything. Check in was easy, and our room had a beautiful view of Acropolis and a balcony. It's in the most adorable neighborhood with tons of bars and restaurants! There's free continental breakfast as well. Wish we would have stayed for longer!

This place is really unique, friendly and chilling, no party house with teenage kids. Clean and tidy with very friendly staff who goes ahead and try to help as much as possible.. I loved the view from the roof top as much as the fact that there was no bar and so one could enjoy private moments or chilling chitchats... More

City Circus Hostel is a perfect place to stay in Athens. Had a private room with three friends, room had bathroom and two beds up on the mezzanine level. Quirky place with plenty of room to relax in. Staff are friendly and helpful and breakfast was included. Only a 15 minute stroll to Acropolis etc.

Stayed here for 3 nights with my friends and loved it. The rooms were nice, the beds were excessively comfy and the showers were clean. Id heard great things from friends who'd been before and read reviews but was a little skeptical in terms of why I was paying the amount I was paying.. Totally worth it! Our beds were... More

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...

We hardly took any public transport cause the hostel is so near to a varied number of attractions, from the ancient ruins to the coolest bars, cafes and restaurants! 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
