Really great hostel to stay on my own for a night for one night. Cool restaurants and bars nearby, easy to find from airport/metro, close walk to Parthenon, WAY nicer than other nearby hostels!

Provably one of the best hostels I have stayed ever. Secure, and very nice and helpful staff. The 6-people mixed dorm is actually much larger than expected, and very clean too. Plenty of chances for interaction with other stayers, hard to find a better hostel than this.

Great hostel. Free breakfast is amazing and such a rare treat in the world of backpacking. Wifi good, lockers big enough for your large bag. Close to the metro station and has an amazing view of the Acropolis from the rooftop terrace.

We only stayed here for one night, but had a very great experience. The four of us had a private room with a bathroom. Very clean and looked like it had been remodeled recently. The breakfast is delicious--they have homemade sweets and jams. Yummy. Very cool aesthetic and large table to eat and chat with other travelers. Easy to get to from Thissio metro stop. In a hot location, Psirri, with plenty of bars and restaurants around. Will definitely consider staying here again.

Great location, close to metro, shops, restaurants and the Acropolis.

Nice little hostel in the Psirri district of Athens, pretty much right in the heart of the action but off the main drag so fairly quiet at night. Very clean, staff were helpful and ever-present at the front desk. The free breakfast was OK, and the common area is a very nice room. And you have to love a hotel that has a roof terrace with a view of the Acropolis!! My private room was very clean and good value and had the comfiest bed ever. Overall a hostel that tries hard to please, and succeeds.

This was the cleanest, most comfortable hostel I have stayed at yet. The beds are more comfortable than mine at home, the AC is really good, and overall the rooms feel like hotel rooms. The location is good to, it's within walking distance of the acropolis and there are markets nearby. The only downside is that there is no communal kitchen which is not that big of an issue but it'd be nice if they at least had a refrigerator that guests could use.

I was in city circus for 2 nights with 3 of my friends before we moved on to the islands. It was great to be walking distance from the acropolis, some great restaurants and in a vibrant part of the city. The hostel was really clean, the internet was very fast and the staff were helpful when necessary. We sadly missed out on the breakfast each morning, however it looked good. The atmosphere was quiet, despite it being the night of the world cup finals, and with a full house! Good place to chill

The staff, especially the woman who worked during the day whose name I forget, were very helpful. The location was great. I met some really nice people, but it was not a loud/party hostel which was great. The breakfast was really good, too. Oh and super comfy beds and hot showers.

Had a pretty average stay here as had to went to bed early (10.30pm) as had to get up early to catch ferry and half my room came back at 1am turned on all the lights and decided to pack there bags and have great yarns. Hostel was clean and new. Staff were a bit drippy. And our en suited bedroom didn't actually have a bathroom attached
