Wonderful stay with such friendly staff! I love it here!
Very good breakfast, comfortable beds, enjoyable rooftop. Met some nice people too! Highly recommend and it's in a great part of town in regards to nightlife.
The location is excellent: in a beautiful neighbourhood surrounded by nice bars, restaurants, cafes and bakery shops. Very close to major sites and shoppings. The facilities are excellent and spotlessly clean! The bed, pillow and quilt are soooo soft and comfy! The staff are very helpful, although could be friendlier or warmer. Breakfast are excellent!
Fabulous stay at city circus and again upon return from a cruise. Incredibly clean, great rooms close to the main sights and (we think) good value for money. Lovely breaky and we didn't feel like "odd people out" being in the slightly older backpacker group (30s) sure there's heaps of party opportunities but for us it was nice and relaxed!
My friend and I stayed at City Circus and loved it! The beds were so comfortable and the staff was very friendly. Complementary breakfast every morning consisting of bread, fruit salad and Greek yogurt. Location was perfect - about a 10 minute walk from the Ruins sites. Staff cleaned the rooms to perfection everyday! Overall, best hostel we've stayed in. Highly recommend to any travellers.
This is one of the best hostels I have stayed in! the beds were so comfortable (better then the one at my school here) and so clean! we were in the room every day when the cleaning lady came in and she spent a long time working on the room every day. there was a happy hour one night with a free glass of wine and snacks. very safe location
This hostel has the most comfortable beds, they're soooo plush, and it was amazing.The free breakfast is awesome, and they have all these local jams! The only thing is that some of the neighboring streets are kind of dodgy, but everything else is spectacular.
Great place, extremely clean, helpful staff (ask them about recommended resturants and definetely follow their tips!). Very good location: close to the monuments and metro stations, very lively area with a lot of bars and restaurants, but the hostel is on the calm street and there is no noise during nights. Basic but very tasty breakfast (greek yogurt is a must :)) I recomend the place and I'm looking forward to stay there again
Second time I've stayed at City Circus and that's for a good reason. I've never felt more comfortable and welcomed at any other place I've stayed. I highly recommend this to anyone traveling to Athens. It's worth every penny!
Great location close to Monastiraki square, restaurants and bars in a safe area for single travellers to walk around late at night. I stayed in a 4-bed female dorm which was really nice and clean. Beds were super comfy. My suggestion is to have bedlamps, more hangers in the room and more power outlets. Also, a board with suggestions what to see do (actvivities), local restaurants and bars would have been nice. The staff were really helpful and friendly. The roof top terrace was superb. Stay here
One of the bests hostels I've ever stayed. Clean, secure, with stunning design, very nice staff, lovely breakfast. Overall quality was better than in many hotels I stayed before. Oh! And the view from the terrace! Loved it!
Seriously the best hostel I've EVER stayed in. Clean, comfortable (the beds are like clouds, my gosh), nice people, free breakfast, good wifi. Wow. I felt like I was in a super nice hotel and I was even in one of the dorm rooms.
Awesome hostel!!! Clean, friendly, super comfy beds, yummy breakfast.
Best hostel I've ever stayed in. Extremly clean and confortable rooms and has a great atmosphere.
Absolutely great experience! The place will spoil you and make other hostels feel inadequate. The staff was very helpful in arranging tours and giving recommendations. As for the rooms, they were very clean and the beds are comfortable. This is the hostel to choose when you are in Athens.
Excellent value for your money. Helpful staff. Amazing breakfast. Overall it seemed to cater to an older demographic.
We had an amazing experience at this hostel. The staff was so nice, and made us sandwiches when we had to miss breakfast one morning to leave early for a one day cruise. They were very accommodating to our late check-in time, and answered all of our questions kindly about directions on how to get places. The hostel itself was beautiful, and the decorations were so fun and classy! The environment was great, and definitely more like a hotel than a hostel. Very quiet and relaxing.
I was really pleased with City Circus, extremely clean and accommodating! Complimentary breakfast was really the amazing part. Everything was delicious and they even had food out for us when we had to wake up for a very early flight. Would definitely recommend because it was like a small hotel and very comfortable with great decor. Staff also recommended a great day trip to some islands. It got a bit noisy at night from the streets when we opened the windows, but overall excellent experience!
