This hostel is more like a hotel and had absolutely nothing wrong with it. The best hostel I have ever stayed in and I highly recommend it. The rooms are clean with comfortable beds and the lounge is great for meeting other travellers. It also has a roof top bar and the breakfast is amazing!! Greek yogurt, boiled eggs, and... More

The first impressions of this hostel weren't great as it's not in the nicest area, however after check in it was clear to see this hostel was lovely. The rooms we're like hotel rooms, nicely redecorated and with air con! Breakfast was buffet with lots of selection, lovely. The only down side is there are no kitchen facilities for guests.

I booked a 6-bed dorm with ensuite bathroom with City Circus for two nights, not knowing what to expect. After living in dorms on several islands in Greece for a very similar price, I was not expecting too much — but I was utterly blown away by the sophistication, cleanliness, friendliness and convenient location of the hostel. Location wise, it... More

Thank you to the staff of city circus Athens. Best location, service and accommodation. The room was impeccable and the hostel had a beautifully decorated lobby. As a girl, bathrooms are critical and these well exceeded my expectations with hair dryers and separate rooms for the toilet and shower. Bathrooms were shared between a maximum of four people. The hostel... More

Stayed for one night on our way to the Islands- more than impressed with everything about the hostel. Great location, super clean, friendly staff, large modern rooms and common areas. Everyone should stay here! We will definitely back to city circus athens!

We stayed at City Circus 4 nights in early July and LOVED the place. It is well located (5 min walk to Monastiraki square and 20 min to the Acropolis), clean, and the staff is friendly. The rooftop terrace is a great bonus, overlooks the Acropolis, and is the perfect place to have a cold beer before dinner. The free... More

We stayed here 3 nights in early July - our family of four - and City Circus is definitely worth raving about - it's a great place.... Clean, friendly & helpful staff, newly renovated, really good free breakfast, and it's conveniently located. The area nearby is a little sketchy with graffiti everywhere but similar to some other big cities, if... More

We stayed at City Circus Athens for only two nights in July. Not knowing what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality in the hostel. Excellent english speaking staff at the reception at all times, which was convenient as we had an early check out. We stayed in a budget double room which was lovely and clean and... More

My sister and I recently stayed at City Circus in Athens for one night. Since we were there for less than 24 hours we were looking for an affordable and clean option. The room was modern, clean, and the AC worked great. They also have a nice lobby and rooftop terrace if you want to enjoy a beer or cappuccino... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
City Circus is an alternative travelers space for the restless voyager, the escape artist, the acrobat. It's in the heart of Athens, in the hip Psirri neighborhood, beside numerous eateries and watering holes and a short walk from worthwhile sites. City Circus is in a 4-story, restored early 20th century mansion, complete with fresco-ed ceilings, wrought-iron balconies and baroque tiles. We’ve dressed it up with vintage furniture, reclaimed materials, modern design elements and street art by a selection of fresh local talent. ... more   less
