Excellent hostel, clean and well kept. Modern and stylish, located in a quiet street but very close to the action of Monastiraki area. Only 6min walking to Monastiraki metro, with direct and easy access to both Airport (8 euro) and Piraeus Port (1.20 Euro). Minutes away from countless restaurants, bars, shops and very close to the Acropolis. I slept in the 4-bed room with ensuite, bathroom was very clean and size of room adequate. A great place to stay in the heart of Athens! Highly recommended!

There is no reason to consider staying anywhere else in Athens, unless you're on a tight budget. The breakfast spread is fantastic. The kitchen sells good food and drinks for cheap all day and night. The atmosphere is completely chill, with a cool commons area. They have free wine socials, Greek cooking classes, Athens tours, etc. The rooms and bathrooms are super clean. Great location, next to a cool strip of restaurants and bars, quick walk to Monastiraki. Do yourself a favor; stay here.

Everything about this hostel was excellent with mostly very friendly staff with maybe just one girl that seemed like she didn't want to be there. Nevertheless, her lack of enthusiasm didn't take away from the hostel! And during my stay there, they had a staff meeting for an hour, though I can't understand Greek, but the process seemed very democratic and engaging. Overall, would be back there again.

We LOVED City Circus!!! The staff are wonderful

City Circus is a clean and comfortable stay. It was actually more of a hotel where you have to sleep in the same room as strangers. Personally I prefer a hostel with a little more conversation between guests and a little less of a hushed atmosphere (I was there on a Saturday night... dead quiet) but I can see how it would be perfect for the weary traveler.

Really just an amazing place with an amazing location, and Enrico was the absolute best. He was genuinely excited to help you out and show you his amazing city he lives in. I broke my hand the night before arrival and he helped me out in finding a hospital and everything I needed for my stay, including plastic bags to wrap my arm up for the shower and everything like that. He knew the ins and outs of berlin and I was so glad to have him around and meet just an awesome guy. Thank you so much !!!!

Great location! Nice sized rooms and comfortable. Bathrooms in the dorms could be a bit cleaner. The staff were overall friendly and helpful. We especially liked the cooking lesson!

Booked 2 beds in one dorm and they put us in different rooms in different floors. They also put my boyfriend in an all-girls dorm, so at 1am we had to move our bags between floors. The facilities are really nice though.

SUCH a nice hostel. Wish I could have stayed longer. The beds were comfy, the showers were strong, wood floors, its a recently refurbished OLD building with original relics. The staff was all friendly and they even did my laundry for 7 euro. They have a terrace on top that has an incredible view of Acropolis at night. Nicest hostel I've even been too. Breakfast too!!

It is a very beautiful neighbourhood, lots of grafittis all araound, great restaurants, very closed to all the athens attractions (walkable distance for young) Really loved the atmosphere, very good breakfast, staff helpfull, laundry perfectly done (fare price). Bad thing is when you are in the room and the card of another one is placed to activate the light and a/c you rely in it... and if you are taking a shower and the card is displaced by the owner you got black in it.

High quality hostel with good staff. Price reasonable for a 6 bed dorm. Good atmosphere, and regular events organized in the week. Special thought for the one in charge of the breakfast. So delicious :)

Perfect place, some noisy people but a perfect place to stay in Athens!

Great hostel near everything. Easy to get there by metro from port and airport. Rooms are really new, spacious, clean with air con and lockers. Really good beds as well. Bathrooms are new and clean. Therefore a great hostel. During my stay the common area wasn't used that much so not that easy to meet people, but had great roommates and went out with them. They offered a pub crawl as well, but this definitely needs a bit of improvement. All in all I really enjoyed my stay there.
