I don't understand why you would have hostel rooms set up like hotel rooms where you need a key card in the wall to power the lights. When sharing with strangers this is a minor but frequent source of annoyance. Would also be better if everyone had their own bed side power sockets too. Otherwise seems like a pretty good hostel.

City Circus was great! The staff was extremely helpful with any questions or help we needed. It was laid back, but offered a restaurant/bar area where you could hang out as well as a common area. The rooms were extremely clean & comfortable!! I stayed in a 4 person room & we had our own clean bathroom which was a plus. Again, SUPER clean. I'd stay there again in a heart beat! Great area too with lots to do around the hostel.

This may have been because early February is not the busiest time of year, but the hostel was almost entirely lacking in atmosphere. The incorporation of the hostel into a rather nice looking and expensive restaurant was just weird and the common areas weren't well set up. This is a hostel where you would feel perfectly comfortable coming as a family with young children, and any hostel like that is simply not worth staying at.

The hostel has a wonderful decoration, rooms really clean, security system for bedrooms very good also. Most wonderful breakfast I see in hostels, it was served in a restaurant in the same building. Location is in the middle of good restaurants - very touristic - and close to Acropoles and metro, but you can go to principal points by foot. Staff was cool. But I didnt feel it was a hostel to meet people, it was quite empty and people hosted there didnt talk or interact...to couples is perfect.

Only thing I would improve is giving each bed in the dorms access to a powerpoint at bed level, and a light a bed level, to increase privacy and reduce disturbance by others in the room

Best hostel I've ever stayed in by far, so clean, amazing beds and so so clean, it almost feels like a hotel. I didn't bump into many people there overall which might be difficult for lone travellers (may also be the time of the year I stayed here though) however I did ultimately meet some really cool people.

Easily one of the best hostels you could stay at. Felt more like a cheap hotel! Lovely staff always willing to help. Easy access to anything you'd like to see in the city as it's walking distance from the train station. Haven't got a bad word to say and would definitely recommend to anybody.

After staying in hostels on 5 continents, this is my absolute favorite hostel ever! The consistent cleanliness, friendly staff, comfortable beds and awesome breakfast is why every time I come to Athens, this is where I end up! There is a particular staff member by the name of Tiziana who I would like to mention. Tiziana is very approachable and she brings a warm and positive attitude to this place; she is a pleasure to speak with and is very knowledgeable about Athens and about Greece. Thank you

Very nice place, beautiful design in the lobby, restaurant. It may improve putting more electric plugs in the rooms. Great service and staff.

Our ferry to Hydra was cancelled one day and the staff was incredible at helping us cancel our hotel, rebook at the hostel, and find more things to do in Athens! It was incredibly kind. This hostel wasn't that social in my opinion, so if you are looking for more of a party hostel I'm not sure if this is it.

Dear City Circus guest, thank you for your kind words. You see, sometimes a ferry strike doesn't necessarily mean a bad thing, at least you had time to discover Athens and the surrounding area :) You are right, we are not a party hostel but we still try to connect people through our evening activities such as wine tasting, happy hour, bar crawl or movie nights and we can say that, so far, successfully. We wish you a lot of great travels in the future and hopefully you'll pass from City Circus at least once again! Best, City Circus

Staff was nice. Restaurant next door/within same building. Beds and bathroom were nice. Didn't have outlets at each bed. Location was good, restaurants and bars really close. Wifi didn't work well for me, but seemed to work well for everyone else. Nice common area. I recommend this hostel.

Overall my experience here was very good. Good atmosphere, and I met great people here, so if you are a solo traveler, this is an excellent option. The staff was very knowledgeable, and were able to answer all of my questions. The facilities are great, and this hostel is attached to a restaurant. Highly recommended!

Nice facility, very clean. Facilities Good only because there was only one toilet and shower in our 8-bed room, less than an ideal ratio.
