Nice comfy big bunk beds! Probably my favorite thing. Got in late and only stayed 1 night so didn't get to experience the hostel properly.
This is likely the best hostel I've ever stayed at. The location is fantastic and is in an artsy neighborhood near major train stations. Not only are the rooms bright, clean, and spacious, the common areas are expansive but also engage some level of intimacy where you are sure to make new friends. The young staff here is extremely friendly and personable. The general demographic of guests here tend to be young professionals (probably as the City Circus costs a bit more than most hostels).
Excellent condition inside and staff very helpful and nice. Breakfast good and a nice atmosphere in hostel. Quiet at night and slept well. Would use again for sure. Very convenient location getting to real feel of Athens..

Great hostel in center of Athens. The girl at the front desk was so cute, that I've almost fall in love with her, though i think she had a boyfriend. :)

Awesome hostel; very comfortable dorm rooms with ample space and lovely doubles. Bathrooms were clean and all rooms had an air conditioner which was definitely required in the 40 degree Athens heat. Common area was top noych. Staff were really friendly and helpful.This hostel ticked all the boxes for me and was also located in a great area for all the Athens sights and easy access to teh airport via the metro.
Perfect hostel, I can't add anything bad to this review. Great atmosphere, there's a daily activity to make some new friends, rooms were pretty big, cleaned and comfortable, with proper beds and a convenient bathroom. Staff was helpful all the time, and the breakfast was pretty good! I would reccomend this place for everyone, and i would definetely come back!
Absolutely wonderful place to stay. Clean, great breakfast, staff very accommodating, and perfect location. Thank you for a great experience!

The staff was very helpful and friendly! It's a great location that is close to restaurants and shops, as well as a short walk from the Acropolis. Anytime I am in Athens, I will be staying at City Circus!
Great location, good views friendly staff, nice and cleanI dident rate the breakfast that much have stayed in some good hostels, the breakfasts were great, this felt like it was lacking, it was really hot in the room when we got back at night time, the a/c in the room dident really work, felt like I was in a tent in the Australian outback it was that hot.
Great hostel in a great location. Easy to walk everywhere and the metro stations are close. The beds (and pillow) are so comfortable and a really good size (unlike many other hostels where beds can be quite narrow and the pillows lumpy). Lockers in the room are huge which means my whole suitcase could fit in. The included breakfast was decent and the hostel was very clean. Would definitely stay here again.
Probably best hostel I've ever been to. Amazing!
I stayed at City circus for 5 nights in total in my time in Greece. It is a very comfortable and nice hostel, mostly friendly staff, very clean. Wifi works well, lockers secure. The best thing is the yummy breakfast! Rooms are a little small but hostel has some nice facilities including a great rooftop terrace with a view of the Acropolis. It's nice to be in the area of Psiri- lots of street art as you wander around.
Location is central, the streets around it seem a bit sketchy but I think that's basically everywhere in Athens. Really clean hostel and staff were really helpful. Rooftop terrace is definitely the highlight!
So incredibly impressed with this hostel! It's so beautiful and clean and has quite possibly the most comfortable beds. The facilities were brand new and modern. Didn't stay long so I can't comment on the staff but they seemed quite helpful and friendly.
Great place to stay. About 20 min walk from the Acropolis/ Parthenon. Very easy to meet people for me (I stayed in a 4 bed dorm ensuite). No bar on the roof, but there is a terrace with an awesome view of the Acropolis lit up on a hill at night. Breakfast was standard plus a fruit salad.
Fantastic rooftop views so you can sit and chill out
This is a great place to stay. Very friendly and helpful staff! We would definitely stay there again and recommend this hostel to our friends!
Very good location. The room was excellent, with air conditioner. And the breakfast was delicious. It was awesome!
Rooms were great, very clean. Gentleman at front office booked a taxi for us at 2am to the airport, everything was smoothly and he was very helpful.
Not being able to control the air con temp would be my only complaint. As there was not fan in our ensuite it would be nice to readjust the room temp to for a few minutes to help cool down post shower.
