Had a great stay here traveling by myself in a 4 person female room. Only thing I'd change is have plugs for the top bunk. I had to leave my phone charging near the bottom bunk. While the girls I was staying with were super nice, you never know when you're stuff will go missing! Luckily no problems here. Very... More

Wonderful accommodation in central Athens. The building is beautiful and the interior design is really great, especially all the mid-century furniture pieces. We had a room plus bathroom to ourselves and it was really nice. The bed was the best bed we have slept on for our entire trip in Greece. Brilliant location and great tips. Highly recommend!

This was by far the best hostel experience that I have had in Europe. Value for money is incredible. Breakfast was great and make sure you try their homemade pizza. The location of this hostel is ideal as it is a short walk from the city center. Overall wonderful experience.

Stayed at City Circus twice during a trip around the Greek Islands and was so happy with it! Amazing hostel with heaps of character, the rooms are lovely and clean and the free hostel breakfast is amazing. Definitely will stay here again when I someday return to Athens :)

Really wanted to love this place but it fell pretty short of expectations. I always prefer to stay in properties similar to this but for a little more money there are much better options available. The location is fantastic! The building is really interesting. My room was loft style which was neat. The breakfasts were good. BUT it's almost impossible... More

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
