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.

    Hostel was in a really good location in walking distance of everything you need! Staff were super helpful, dorms and bathrooms really clean too! Really good system for luggage hold and large lockers in the rooms for bags. Had a really nice atmosphere in the common room and met a bunch of awesome people I went out for dinner with.

    This was a good location, it’s about 5-10 minutes walk to Monistiraki station. Everything was good for a hostel. Toilet separate from shower, which means you’re able to use the toilet when someone is showering. There were 2 showers for our room of 6 bunks but I never had a problem with it. When our toilet was being used, I went to the restroom in the reception. Everything clean. Bring your own amenities like towels, soap, shampoo, padlock.

    Such a great hostel! It was right in a great area for nightlife, the cafe downstairs was awesome, they had activities at night, a nice roof terrace, and just overall a great atmosphere! Definitely do the walking tour of the city they recommend- it was great! At night it was a little hot in the room but other than that a great stay.

    Great hostel - comfy beds in large dorm rooms, clean facilities. Fantastic location, with cool cafes and bars all nearby. Common area in the lobby could do with rearranging to encourage people / solo travellers to meet - though the rooftop terrace was great for that as well. Definitely recommend a stay.

    I had an amazing time at City Circus! The staff were amazing, comfortable beds, great atmosphere, location and the breakfast at the attached restaurant is totally worth the money. This place made my time in Athens great and I am really excited to come back one day.

    Absolutely loved it here! Such a charming hostel. Restaurant downstairs is a nice addition, but hard to eat there for every meal as it can get expensive. The decor and theme of this hostel is awesome. BEDS WERE THE MOST COMFY I've ever had in a hostel. Only stayed here a few nights at a time as a layover to the islands/airport, so we never did the nightly activities or really hung on the terrace. I would recommend this place to anyone though! We booked here twice, and definitely would again!

    Great location - right in the heart of the city. It has nice vintage furnishings, and overall very clean and comfortable. The luggage locker under the bed was too small and didn't fit my pack, so I just had to leave it next to my bed, which made me a little uneasy. The cafe/bar adjoining is very convenient, although a little pricey. I found it wasn't a very social hostel, which was a shame as a solo traveller. However if you're in a group and after some comfort, I would recommend.
