Hostelworld says

If a roof terrace with a stunning view of the Acropolis sounds like your kind of thing, you need to stop by at the City Circus. Just a five minute walk from the Monisteraki and 20 minutes from the Acropolis, you'll be right in the heart of the most happening city in Greece. Newly renovated and home to a delicous breakfast, the notroiously friendly staff will make sure you're always comfortable and you know where you're going (very usefull in a confusing city like Athens). Oh, and they also have air conditioning...

Property Description

City Circus is a cozy-design hostel with a total of 19 rooms, fit to accommodate a wide variety of needs at reasonable prices. We've restored the wooden floors and painted ceilings in this neoclassical building and then dressed it up with antiques, retro furniture and wall art by local talent. With the cool Psirri neighborhood as a backdrop, this is no doubt one unique setting for exploration and play. And after you've seen it all in Athens, City Circus the ideal spot to rest your wandering feet and dreamy head.

We offer standard doubles or twins with ensuite bathrooms as well as spacious dormitories that can comfortably accommodate 4 or 6 people. All beds and mattresses have been custom made in order to ensure maximum comfort and sweet dreams. And if you happen to be taller than average, don't worry, we have you covered.

We have air-conditioning in all rooms and common areas for those warmer than average days or nights. Safety matters to us, so we have installed security locks with key access cards in the rooms and safety cams monitor all common areas on a 24-hour basis.

It's not just accommodation we offer. We want to get you involved in our modern, moving, sexy, throbbing city. Athens is not a patchwork of ancient artifacts.

Our new restaurant Zampano, opened in 2015 is the new entry on the gastronomy map of Athens. Inspired by the main character of Federico Fellini's masterpiece 'La Strada,'. Zampanò takes traditional Greek cuisine to a new level with modern, creative elements always based on fresh, seasonal ingredients from all around the country. Our extensive list of wines will satisfy even the most demanding wine lover.

It is not a stopover to some (undeniably gorgeous) islands. It's an ever-evolving, dynamic habitat to 5 million people, each one pretty fascinating in their own right.

We challenge you to live, love and play and-- if you are so inclined--perform here with the rest of us. Our staff will be thrilled to show you all that Athens has to offer.

We hand out a plentitude of free maps, festival schedules and generous advice at our reception.

And if you are feeling overwhelmed or need to mingle with other fellow travelers, you can chill out with one of the most magnificent views on our terrace.

Just sit back, relax and enjoy the Acropolis right in front of you.

    City Circus Athens delivered exactly the visual and atmospheric experience promised online. Staff was more enthusiastic about helping us maximize our stay than I expected. Apart from the extensive info they offered us, unprompted on arrival, they were extremely knowledgeable and ready to help with all other questions we had about anything from hostel services to transportation, attractions, and restaurants. I would highly recommend booking a stay here and I hope to do it again someday, myself.

    Great hostel in a central location! Very comfy beds & clean rooms with AC. Felt very safe & secure. Only thing lacking was cooking facilities (no stove) or self-serve laundry (though the hostel organises a 3rd party service for €8). Overall would recommend!

    We loved staying at City Circus Athens! Great location and friendly staff. Front desk gave many great recommendations. Safe location, and key card must be used to enter the lobby. Not as social as other hostels but we still did meet a few friends.

    Excellent hostel with friendly and very helpful staff. The rooms and beds were comfortable and tidy. Everything worked. Sometimes a little noisy at night but mostly fine. I was a bit surprised with the kitchen because there was no oven or stove and it does mention, "self-catering facilities." But there is a Sandwich toasty Maschine and a fridge. But it was a pleasurable stay and I recommend it to anyone. I would stay again. 🙂

    Very nice hostel! Modern and clean. A few minutes walk from the metro from airport. Good location - everything is walkable. The beds were very sturdy and large. Bathroom en-suite was clean. Lockers in room, outlets by head. The area it’s in is nice. Staff were nice. I would recommend anyone stay here

    Was a lovely stay, you could see the Acropolis frok my bed which was pretty cool. Met a lovely friend in my room however that was just lucky, not overly social as there aren't many acitvities organised except for a nightly pub crawl. Good water filling up spot which was goos cause you cant drink the tap water. Overall a good stay, would stay again.
