Centrally located, close to Metro Stations "Thisseio" and "Monastiraki" this small hotel is and ideal place to stay and explore Athens. It is clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, the breakfast was excellent. I highly recommend this place. Make sure to explore the near-by streets of the Psirri neighbourhood, on of the oldest neighbourhood of Athens and a hot... More

We stayed one night at City Circus Hostel and it was brilliant! The staff were really helpful and friendly and the location was great - short walk from the train station with loads of great bars, cafes and restaurants right at your doorstep. Was also only a short walk to many of the historical sites in Monastiraki. We stayed in... More

I was doing a tour of the Greek Islands with a group, and the recommended hostel was fully booked. I wasn't too happy about dishing out extra dough for City Circus, but I immediately changed my mind after I walked in the door. City Circus is what every hostel should aim to be. It felt swanky, it was cool, the... More

I went on a college trip with about 14 other students and we spent our time in Athens in the City Circus hostel. We found it very easily from the Monastraki metro stop. The hostel itself is in an excellent area - close to the city centre of Athens, but the restaurants nearby are cheaper than they would be in... More

I stayed at the City Circus Hostel in April and it was one of the best experiences that I've had staying in a hotel or hostel abroad. The place was so clean and the decor was wonderful. It was quirky, modern and so comfortable. The staff were amazing, friendly, informative and willing to help with anything. The rooms were clean... More

City Circus Hostel exceeded our expectations. It was very clean, modern, well run with helpful staff. It has been recently renovated and even has a elevator. The rooms were a reasonable size, we stayed in a 6 bed dorm with an ensuite bathroom and the shower was huge compared to everywhere else we've stayed in Greece. The beds were also... More

This is by far the best hostel I have ever stayed in! Don't be deceived by the outside streets. The employees are extremely kind and helpful, plus, they have a happy hour with a free glass of wine on Thursdays! The rooms are very clean with a personal bathroom, and the hostel itself is very clean. Athens gets pretty warm,... More

One of the best hostels (from dozens) I've been to. There's always something nice going on there. And the staff is particularly good. Every employee have a combination of efectiveness and friendability. I could name Tony - for his help and good tips - and especially Tiziana - who is friendly, charming, delicate, smiling, helpful, and (very) hardworking. Something to... More

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!
