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.

Overview

Make yourself at home at City Circus Athens – you'll find us in a lovingly restored neoclassical building. We'll introduce you to the city with a free walking tour, and back at base, retro furniture and murals by local artists make for a quirky, fun vibe. Later, tuck into classic Greek dishes in Zampanò, our restaurant, and take an arty photo for Insta using the free Wi-Fi. Spend the rest of the evening chatting or trying the famous ouzo (it's an acquired taste!) on our roof terrace with views over the Acropolis.

Location

Our hostel's in the Psirri neighbourhood which comes alive at night with buzzing bars and loads of restaurants. The nearest metro stops are Monastiraki and Thēseiou – both 250 metres away. Take the X95 bus from Athens International Airport to Syntagma metro station and we’re a short walk from there. Or, hop on metro line 3 to Monastiraki and we’re 45 minutes away. From Piraeus port, we’re around an hour. Get bus 831 to Piraeus then line 1 to Thēseiou. The Acropolis is 20 minutes away on foot, while the flea markets and tavernas of the Monastiraki district are a 5-minute wander.

Rooms and Dorms

Get more space for your stuff in a private room with your own en-suite. Or go for a mixed or female-only dorm – the bunks are custom made and linen is free. If you don’t feel like taking the stairs, take the elevator up and drop your bag in your secure locker. We have air con, too, for those warm Greek nights.

Extras and activities

Pop a load in the washing machine and head to the lounge to play a board game while you wait, or browse our stacks of DVDs to line one up for later. Made a new travel buddy? Drop by our café or hang out at a bar till late (our 24-hour reception team is always here to welcome you home). To see the city like a local, rent a bike from the front desk.

    This is one of the best hostels I have been to. The rooms are clean and beds are great. Bathrooms are new and has shower curtains so water doesn't go everywhere. Common area is big and cozy. The restaurant in the building is nice too. There is no actual bar, but it's easy to meet people and go to the many bars and restaurants in the area. You should book on the hostels website to get free breakfast in the restaurant.

    We had a small issue with the first room we occupied and they immediately moved us, addressed and apologized for the issue, and gave us a few free beers! Also, the laundry service was really nice as the clothes were dry and folded when they came back.
