This hostel is one of the best i have stayed at (nov 2012). The receptioner had excellent service, the breakfast was simple but good quality. The setting around the breakfast was amazing and authentic. The staff is genuine and makes the breakfast like it would be in your own kitchen. How often does that happen and for that price? It...

Breakfast is included too, fresh bread from the bakery across the road, greek yougurt, fruit, musili amongst other things. They have a bar as well which is reasonably priced, and also a... More

The dorm beds are the best!! Very comfortable and big. They have a specific toilet and shower room for dorm rooms, everything is nice and clean with cute decorations. You can just chill out at the rooftop terrace, from which you can see the Acropolis. It is a pleasure staying in City Circus Athens!

January sunshine made for beautiful weather and no crowds. Loved our stay for the reasons stated elsewhere: friendly, CLEAN, roof view, location, homemade breakfast buffet, helpful. Hip vibe in boutiquey neiborhood, but also friendly to this middle aged mother and her son. 5 nights in room 103. Quiet except fir and sat street noise. Nondas is a gem and gave... More

I was super satisfied. This hostel is clean, cosy and has really unique atmosphere! And you can see Acropolis from its roof! :-) I also appreciated the possibility of having my laundry done (for 7,5 euros if I remember correctly).

I loved my stay at City Circus. Great location for sightseeing in Athens. The breakfast is wonderful and the hostel is very clean. My friend and I stayed for two nights after a flight from the US. We stayed in the downstairs private room and it was perfect for us.

Stayed in both the private double and mixed dorm - very comfortable, clean and well equipped. Hosts are very friendly and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable and help you out local information. Public areas are comfortable, well equipped and very social. Breakfast's are amazing!

Great location 5-10mins walk from Monastiraki metro station and not far from the central sights of Athens, good places to eat, cool cafes, shopping. The graffitied back streets (full of empty or boarded up businesses) seem a bit creepy when they're empty at night but I think it's pretty safe. The building and rooms have great security. The staff are... More
