I staid in a 4 bedroom for women and it was the most comfortable bed I slept in during my week through Greece which included some hotels. Lockers in the room but bring your own lock, welcoming lounge area, very clean and spacious. The facilities look to be new and are in very good condition. It is about a 8-10 min walk to the Monastiraki station that will take you straight to the airport in about 45 min.
Only stayed one night -- breakfast was delicious, common area was spacious and staff was incredibly helpful!
Nice atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast and a wonderful roof terrace. Loved it!
This hostel was fantastic. I stayed in the four-bed female dorm with ensuite. The beds are super comfortable, there's air conditioning, there are big lockers, the bathroom was spotless, and the water was hot. There is a beautiful common area with a big table covered in books about Greece and Athens. The hostel has a kitchen that you can order food, coffee, beer, or cocktails from anytime. The included breakfast is delicious - granola, greek yogurt, fruit, honey, OJ, and coffee or tea.
Near perfection! This hostel is remarkably clean, friendly and located just 7 mins from Monastiraki METRO Station (Line 3 - airport) and Monastiraki Square (a hub of activity, eateries and shops) and close to the Acropolis, Plaka, Agora and Syntagma Square. Dorm room w/ bathroom worth the few extra Euros. Free daily breakfast was plentiful and excellent. Make sure to check out the hostel's rooftop with it's amazing Acropolis view. Only possible negative is that the area is a lil dodgy at night.

Really nice place. Staff were amazingly helpful in assisting me with how to get boats around the islands, where things were located nearby, with restaurants and atms and maps. Everyone staying here was really friendly. It has a really funky vibe to the place, seemed to be an awesome common area but didn't get a chance to check it out. There were a lot of things around this area and I really wish I had stayed longer at this hostel and in Athens. Will be going back to explore it further!
The place is exceptionally clean, and the staff is very friendly. Beds are very comfortable! My only lukewarm comment about this place is that the immediate surrounding area feels a little dodgy at night. Other than that, highly recommended!
This was my second time staying at circus city and I liked it even better! I finally got to try the free breakfast...omg it's delicious! Greek yogurt, Muesli, fresh fruit. Such great quality. The room once again exceeded expectations. 6 bed this time and it was even better value for money and just as nice as the for bed
Excellent hostel. Like-new condition, very clean, well designed. Close enough to Monastiraki Square and its Metro station to be considered well located. Exceptional breakfast choices. Would definitely stay here again!
A gem in what initially appeared as a sketchy, graffiti laden neighborhood. Close to Montaksiri square and Metro station, which is always hopping with a crowd full of people, and eateries, and action. Check out the square for 2 € gyros that are amazing, the free walking tour w info at front desk. The hostel is almost new, clean, the staff incredibly helpful. A great self serve breakfast every morning, rooms, showers cleaned daily. They have a 7 € laundry service, delivered to you in afternoon.
City Circus is the best hostel in Athens! Close to the Acropolis, with an amazing terrace from where you have a wonderful view. Staff is super friendly and willing to help, location is great, rooms are comfortable, clean and really nice. Interior design is wonderful and it is what caught my attention when making the decision of staying there (: and I wasn't dissaponted. I arrived at the hostel on my birthday and the owner even had a shot with me and made sure I felt happy. Breakfast is amazing!
The best place ever (for me)!!! Beautifully renovated building with spacious dorms. Large and well furnished common room. Sturdy wooden beds with excellent matrasses. Ladders to top beds have nice wide steps that don't hurt your feet. VERY clean place, fresh sheets every three days, beds are made every day. Big lockers. Good bathroom. Breakfast is generous and totally amazing. Great rooftop terrace. Everything is well organized. The owners are most wonderful people, kind & dedicated & helpful!
I fell IN-LOVE with this hostel. Compared to other hostels, this one seems like a get-away resort. It's so close to the markets, so close to the cute and quaint restaurants, not to mention the Acropolis! Facilities are awesome! Literally felt like a dream after our previous hostel experiences. Would HIGHLY recommend to any traveller looking to be taken care of.
Had a great stay at city circus, really close to all sights and easily accessible from the port, airport and bus station. You will find great restaurants all within a short walk. Hostel ie newly renovated and looks amazing! Definitely would recommend. Oh and breakfast was fantastic too!
Such a nice hostel! I had just made a long journey and my 4 bedroom shared dorm was just what I needed. It was so clean, air conditioned, pretty... it felt like being home. The whole place is just gorgeous. It doesn't feel like a hostel at all! Really felt safe there and so comfortable. Like being at home! The wifi is also really strong. Great if you want a little comfort!
Excellent location in Athens with a great view of the Acropolis from the rooftop terrace at night. Safer part of town than many areas in Athens. Walking distance to metro station, Agora, and great area of Athens with plenty of shopping and cafes. Rooms and bathrooms were exceptionally clean. LOVED the free breakfast!

Very clean, modern rooms. Nice rooftop with a view of the acropolis. Great free breakfast, helpful staff. Would definitely stay again and would recommend to anyone. Always felt safe in the area.
Great, clean hostel with a nice roof terrace for meeting other travellers.
This is by far the best hostel I've ever stayed at! The staff was super friendly, welcoming and helpful. Good options for the breakfast that's included. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. The rooftop had an amazing view, great place for a beer after a long day. Location is perfect, close to everything you need to see. Loved city circus, definitely recommend staying here!
