One of the best hostels I've stayed at. The location is within walking distance of pretty much all of the major tourist sites in Athens, and the area has no shortage of cool shops and restaurants nearby. Facilities were great, and staff was very helpful. The rooftop is a nice bonus!

First off the atmosphere is great - chilled out and conducive to meeting other hostel-goers, and the free drink on Tuesdays/Thursdays definitely helps in this regard. Staff are friendly and helpful, the location is perfect (close to plenty of restaurants/bars, close to Monastiraki Square but the location itself not touristic). The breakfast consisted of bread, cheese, boiled eggs, tea/coffee, various... More

Excellent hostel located in the heart of Athens. Close to everything. The staff was great and willing to help with anything. The rooms were very clean, and had some of the most comfortable beds I've ever experienced in a hostel! There's something going on almost every night, just make sure you are there for tsiporo night! Yiamas!

Excellent Hostel, it is very clean and modern, the dormitories are good and spacious, breakfast is delicious and the staff is nice and generous with advices. Good location not too far from the metro and Monastiraki. There is also a wonderful view on the roof of the Acropolis. To conclude, an super hostel.

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!

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
