Excellent hostel located in the heart of Athens. Close to everything. The staff was great and willing to help with anything. The rooms were very clean, and had some of the most comfortable beds I've ever experienced in a hostel! There's something going on almost every night, just make sure you are there for tsiporo night! Yiamas!

This is a great hostel, very clean, comfy beds, and the breakfast is better than what you would get in a hotel. If you in Athens this is the place to stay.

I had a great expirience there. The breakfast is awsome and the staff is very helpfull. The hostel is really nearby the most famous touristic sites (Acropolis, Acient Agora, Hadryans Library, etc). And also really near from the center (Monastiraki) where you can find many restaurants and one of the most important metro station.

City Circus was a great place to stay. Located in a relaxing area not far from the Acropolis and other major sights. The common areas were very comfortable and it was easy to meet people. The rooms and bathrooms were also very good. Would definitely return.

The staff were amazing! Everything was excellent, bed very comfy, the only let down was room 105 being a bit too small for 4 bunk beds, with 8 people staying only inches away from each other. Otherwise fine. I would stay again!

The hostel is very nice, style, very clean and safe, great location near Monastiraki square, the staff should be a little more friendly and engaging as pr and many more activities, then it would be perfect, keep it up

That's what "Athen's Circus" should be. Athen's Circus is one of the best hostels I stayed in, if not the very best. It's an amazing value for money. The hostel is clean and comfortable and the staff are amazing, and the location. I wouldn't know what I disliked there.

The area looked scary, but during my whole stay nothing happened, in fact people were very friendly and offered help when saw I was lost. Don't get discourage and book in, the hostel is amazing as the staff. Totally recommended. The bunk beds are confortable and are good quality, when one person moves you don't feel it. I was in an 8 people dorm but the way it was arranged made it feel like 4!

The hostel was great and the furnishings were amazing. The staff were friendly and really helpful and recommended great places. A little on the pricier side of things but was a pleasure nonetheless.
