Only stayed one night -- breakfast was delicious, common area was spacious and staff was incredibly helpful!
Nice atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast and a wonderful roof terrace. Loved it!
This hostel was fantastic. I stayed in the four-bed female dorm with ensuite. The beds are super comfortable, there's air conditioning, there are big lockers, the bathroom was spotless, and the water was hot. There is a beautiful common area with a big table covered in books about Greece and Athens. The hostel has a kitchen that you can order food, coffee, beer, or cocktails from anytime. The included breakfast is delicious - granola, greek yogurt, fruit, honey, OJ, and coffee or tea.
Near perfection! This hostel is remarkably clean, friendly and located just 7 mins from Monastiraki METRO Station (Line 3 - airport) and Monastiraki Square (a hub of activity, eateries and shops) and close to the Acropolis, Plaka, Agora and Syntagma Square. Dorm room w/ bathroom worth the few extra Euros. Free daily breakfast was plentiful and excellent. Make sure to check out the hostel's rooftop with it's amazing Acropolis view. Only possible negative is that the area is a lil dodgy at night.

Really nice place. Staff were amazingly helpful in assisting me with how to get boats around the islands, where things were located nearby, with restaurants and atms and maps. Everyone staying here was really friendly. It has a really funky vibe to the place, seemed to be an awesome common area but didn't get a chance to check it out. There were a lot of things around this area and I really wish I had stayed longer at this hostel and in Athens. Will be going back to explore it further!
The place is exceptionally clean, and the staff is very friendly. Beds are very comfortable! My only lukewarm comment about this place is that the immediate surrounding area feels a little dodgy at night. Other than that, highly recommended!
This was my second time staying at circus city and I liked it even better! I finally got to try the free breakfast...omg it's delicious! Greek yogurt, Muesli, fresh fruit. Such great quality. The room once again exceeded expectations. 6 bed this time and it was even better value for money and just as nice as the for bed
Excellent hostel. Like-new condition, very clean, well designed. Close enough to Monastiraki Square and its Metro station to be considered well located. Exceptional breakfast choices. Would definitely stay here again!
A gem in what initially appeared as a sketchy, graffiti laden neighborhood. Close to Montaksiri square and Metro station, which is always hopping with a crowd full of people, and eateries, and action. Check out the square for 2 € gyros that are amazing, the free walking tour w info at front desk. The hostel is almost new, clean, the staff incredibly helpful. A great self serve breakfast every morning, rooms, showers cleaned daily. They have a 7 € laundry service, delivered to you in afternoon.
