Great location, very helpful staff, meet tons of cool people would go back


One of the best hostels ive ever stayed in, couldn't fault anything. Staff were wonderful, especially Tiziana. Everything is so new and clean and fresh and all with awesome facilities, great breakfast and great nightly events to include tou and make new friends.


Really loved the common areas, nicely decorated with a circus theme throughout. Very charming. Also liked the new rooms, which were very clean.


Awesome rooftop. Great staff. Bathrooms were kinda wack.


Staff was very helpful in all needs. Very nice to have a cab/transport booked by the hostel to have one less thing to worry about. The hostel is located very close to Acropolis and the archaeological sites and can easily be visited in one day in Athens!


Hostel was really nice and clean. Location was awesome because it was minutes away from the Acropolis. I would definately stay there again.


Great place to stay! The staff was very helpful, welcoming and informative right away. The common areas are great for hanging out and meeting people unlike other places - you actually want to hang out downstairs. Good breakfast and fun things to do on most days of the week to meet others. The wall plug situation in the room is a little difficult since there isn't as many plugs as beds but easily manageable!


The owner was very friendly and welcoming. Gave us a lovely room in seperate building which suited this 'senior' traveller. Going back in four days and looking forward to it.


Amazing hostel! One of the top ones I've stayed so far! Clean, really cool atmosphere, the breakfast is great, the location is fantastic for getting anywhere (walking distance from the main attractions, and the metro is even closer). Would definitely recommend staying here. Tony even taught me a new word in my native language!


Safe, clean, good location with unbelievable view of the Acropolis from their roof top terrace and our room. Friendly and helpful staff. Good rates.

This is the best hostel you could possibly stay at. Out of everyone I encountered, those who travel for a year at a time to people on short stays said its the best hostel they have ever been to. It is superbly clean. There are lockers, great breakfast in the morning, a nice roof top terrace, the rooms are spacious. I stayed in a 4 female dorm and the bunk beds were like new and very comfortable. They provide nice blankets, pillows and sheets. The bathroom is large and the water is hot. Stay here


Was only here for a night but wish I had stayed longer. Beautiful hostel with welcoming staff. Comfortable beds and clean rooms. Had to leave very early in the morning and they gave me a sandwich for the road! Very nice place!


Best of the best!


Very good located close to all important places, originally furnished to create a smooth athmosphere, very nice breakfast on a huge table, which is handy for socialising and great rooms and facilities. I would definitely return.


Add outlet and light for each bed!




I can't say enough about the location, it's perfect. Plaka is the neighborhood to stay. When you arrive at night you think its kind of dangerous but it's nothing like that. Clean bedroom, clean hotel, nice breakfast, everything works. Wish just the bed was bigger but the roon was really smal. Besides that, everything was perfect.


Fine hostel, especially for Athens! To give some comment, room number 2 (private) was quite noisy.


Had a great stay, hostel was very clean and staff are extremely helpful


I enjoyed my stay at the City Circus hostel in Athens for 5 nights. The interior is very new and clean, and the beds were comfortable and clean. The staff were helpful and the free breakfast was good. There is also wifi throughout the whole building (except for on the roof). I stayed in the 6 bed dorm and the 8 bed dorm, and I preferred the 6 bed dorm since 8 was really crowded on the side I was on. They don't let you bring food, but there are great cheap food options close by.
