City Circus is an alternative travelers space for the restless voyager, the escape artist, the acrobat. It's in the heart of Athens, in the hip Psirri neighborhood, beside numerous eateries and watering holes and a short walk from worthwhile sites. City Circus is in a 4-story, restored early 20th century mansion, complete with fresco-ed ceilings, wrought-iron balconies and baroque tiles. We’ve dressed it up with vintage furniture, reclaimed materials, modern design elements and street art by a selection of fresh local talent.

We were very happy with our stay in a double private room with a balcony and view of the Acropolis. The hostel is located in a lively busy neighborhood within easy walking distance to the Acropolis and main museums. Breakfast at Zampano, the hotel restaurant was amazing with lots of different options including delicious pancakes, yoghurt and granola, fresh fruit and various egg dishes. We also had some light snacks in the evening which were also very good. Hotel and restaurant staff were all very helpful and professional.

Clean rooms, super nice staff, fun place, but the really amazing thing about City Circus is the location. You are a one minute walk to an enchanting journey through the cobblestone side-streets of Athens. I have stayed at City Circus twice now and continue to appreciate the energy the owner and staff puts into their eclectic gathering point. I now consider CC as a launching place upon arrival to Athens.

Excellent stay with City Circus… from the moment I arrived they have been brilliant, I arrived slightly earlier than check in time but they checked me in anyway… while at the front desk the young lady got a map out and gave recommendations and directions to locations around the city which was really helpful as I’ve never visited before Then while checking out she even phoned local pharmacies to organise a Rapid Covid test for me to have ready for my flight tonite Superb service and lovely rooms quiet rooms, ended up having a 4 bed room to myself

My husband and I stayed in a private room and our friends stayed in a shared room. We both had very good experiences and the beds were super comfortable, which can be hard to find in Europe. My favorite thing about City Circus is its location in a really cool area of town full of street art and restaurants/bars. It’s a short walk to the Acropolis and the bakery across the street had AMAZING breakfast!

Amazing location & Friendly staffs! Very clean restrooms and bedrooms. I was traveling solo, but it was easy for me to walk around the area. Also, you get 15% discount at Zampano restaurant (just downstairs). I had Greek yogurt as breakfast, and it was amazing! They can help you arrange your transportation to the airport too! Highly recommend it!

We came to Athens on our honeymoon and got one of their larger rooms which was perfect. The staff was friendly, helpful & went out of their way to acknowledge our honeymoon. Located within 1 minute from the bustling restaurant scene, ~6 minutes from historic sites, ~7min from metro yet situated on quant quiter street made it a pleasure to come "home" to. The common spaces are so inviting that I could imagine in non-covid times it would have been filled with travelers sharing stories. However the open windows and the rooftop does provide covid safe spaces. In our search for a stay practically every place will have an Acrópolis view & our room did not disappoint.

The rooms were very clean and worth being there. The whole hostel looks very nice and I felt very well there. Would recommend it to everybody, who want to have a certain standard for a good price. Even the food there is amazing!
