A very nice hostel in an excellent location. A short walk to the Pantheon and lots of bars and life right outside the door also lots of very high quality street art. The staff are friendly and the rooms very spacious and clean which for he price is all you can ask for. I'd definitely recommend

I stayed here as a solo female traveler and had a great time. The staff are lovely and have little events every night to help everyone mingle. The rooms are well kept and there is a beautiful balcony on top of the building. Located near the metro line and a short walk from major attractions. Definitely would recommend this hostel!

This hostel has everything. Clean rooms, clean bathrooms, great breakfast and good service. The common area is super nice and the rooftop has a great view. I would come back and stay here all over again. The location is really good too.

We had a group of 7, split across private rooms and shared dorms. Everyone had a great experience at this hostel. The location is central to restaurants, transport and nightlife. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and pleasant, with good air con, decent linen and lockers. The staff were all very helpful, checking in and out with a group was... More

Just like all of the comments on HostelWorld and TripAdvisor, this really is one of the best Hostels I have stayed at. Cheap and chic, it hits all the main points with beautiful interiors, well-cared for rooms and bathrooms (comfy, big wooden bunk beds). The roof terrace is a treat too with a great view of Athens City! Located a... More

Stayed here late July in four bed dorm. The hostel is in a great location 10 minute walk to Acropolis. The beds were extremely comfy, only problem was that there were no lights nor power points on the top bunk. Internet was really fast, the best I have experienced in any hostel in Europe. Special mention to the Greek bakery... More

City Circus Athens is the perfect place to stay in Athens if you are looking for a very, upmarket hostel. City Circus has a really cool vibe and contemporary fit out throughout all the communal areas and the rooms. The location is perfect too, in a neighbourhood full of small bars and a few other hostels and a short walk... More

A very good stay in Athens, in City Circus hostel. Rooms and bathrooms are clean, beds are very comfortable. This is a quiet hostel, with a good location (near Monastiraki subway station, near the acropolis) and with a good staff (excellent advises for restaurants and very helpful for giving informations about public transports). Also, I thought the breakfast was very... More

City Circus in the Psirri district of Athens is a fantastic, one of a kind hostel! Coming from the U.S., my wife and I stayed here for several nights and really enjoyed the experience! The place is decorated really great -- feels like a circus themed thrift store raid mashed with an old mansion feel. The rooms are nice as... More

Loved this place! It was by far the most well maintained and well decorated of all the hostels I have been to. The rooms are great because although 8 people stayed in mine, its split in the middle by a toilet room and shower room so it feels more private. They provide lockers and have a great free breakfast with... More
