We really enjoyed our stay at City Circus, short but very sweet. The hosts are wonderful and provide you with great local recommendations for restaurants, sites to see, etc. As for restaurants, ask them! We wasted way too much time wandering around trying to find restaurants highlighted in my guidebook only to find them closed or major tourist traps. We... More

We couldn't have been happier with this hostel. We booked a private en suite for 2 nights in mid-October. When we first arrived in the cab, driving through many roads with graffiti and etc, we questioned for a split second and then put our trust in previous reviewers - they were completely right. City Circus is in a fantastic location... More

City Circus Athens provide comfortable accommodation 10min walking distance to the vibrant Monastiraki district. Beds are comfortable with well washed linens. Street side rooms are very noisy, unless ones is all night adventurer, do not expect to get a lot of sleep. Breakfast, included in room rate is very average quality. Staff is very helpful, every morning post list of... More

This hostel is way beyond my expectation. It's super super clean, nicely designed and managed. The mattress for the bunk bed is good quality and very comfortable. Bathroom is even cleaner than what's in my own apartment. Staff are very friendly. He explained to me for 20 minutes on the map what trips I can take to go around Athens.... More

FIrst of all, breakfast is simple yet truly hearty and very yummy! Bread are freshly baked from the bakery adjacent to the street, with different homemade jams to choose from. Chic decoration in living and dinning rooms. Walls are painted with inspiring and charming graphics. I stayed in a 4-female dorm room and the bed was so comfy! I was... More

We stayed in a private room in the basement. It's not always quiet, and not enough day light, but we would return here if we came back to Athens. The room as well as the whole hostel is very tastefully decorated, clean, very central (we did all the tourist attractions by food), breakfast was nice and the staff was very... More

City circus Athens was a lovely hostel very close to the main hub of city making its very easy for transport to and from the Port to the Islands and to the Airport. As well as plenty of good shopping and great food. No more than a 10min walk to any part of the city. Staff very friendly and always... More

Thank you for your kind words. We do put a lot of effort into keeping it clean and comfy. From what I understand, you stayed in the smaller Budget Double room. It does have limited leg-room although it is offered at a 30% discount from the Deluxe Doubles. Next time, we'll accommodate you in a double big enough to practice... More

An awesome hostel, unique, clean, hip. Great rooms, cleaned daily, an awesome buffet breakfast, great staff. Close to metro, walking distance to tavernas, bars, shopping, historical sites. Located in a sketchy neighborhood full of graffity (hey it's Athens) and CC is the cleanest, newest building on that street, but the neighborhood is safe. I walked it at all times of... More
