At first glance, you may think this Hostel is in a rough area, but location was excellent and we had no issues at all. Very close to Pedestrian walkway and within walking distance to Acropolis. Staff were super friendly and rooms very clean and stylist. Rooftop terrace was an excellent surprise with beautiful view of the Acropolis. Breakfast was included...

The rooms were big and clean, the breakfast was delicious and the wifi was super fast. More than that, the staff has been incredibly helpful and kind. I highly recommend to reserve your room through their website so to get free breakfast! Thank you guys!

We booked a four-bed dorm which was clean and comfy. Decent breakfast, great terrace view of Acropolis. Situated in calm street, with easy access by foot to tourist sites. Friendly reception. Lots of games, books, in comfy common rooms. Activities proposed.

City Circus Athens was one of the best hostels I stayed at during my month long Euro trip. It was quirky and fun and at the same time very functional. They had absolutely everything one required and a ton of books and common space to hang out. A short walk from the main square and surrounded by little bars and...

City Circus pays attention to every little detail and nails it! The check in and check out process was very easy and the staff was extremely helpful. They offer a variety of services such as laundry for 7 euros (up to 5 Kilos I believe?) and gets it back to you timely and fresh. They also will hold your bags...

This cute hostel is quite good located. It comes with a little rooftop terrace with good views and nice decorated hang out areas. I got a warm welcome and a fast check out. Good dining opportunity in the same building. Lean back, I would recommend this place to people of all ages.

I have stayed at the City Circus Athens during my transit trough inland Greece and the islands. Staff were courteous, rooms were very well maintained and the living space was welcoming.

One of the top 3 hostel rooms I've ever stayed in. Very modern, comfortable, clean and with a very decent sized bathroom in the dorm. Loved the laptops available for use in the downstairs lounge area, and they even had a bit of wine on the go for guests on the night we were there! Not much of a kitchen...

I really loved city circus. It's in psiri area in the centre of Athens with lots of restaurants and bar. The rooms are very stylish with good space and a touch of interior design. If you are going to Athens and would like to hand in city centre this is the place.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
City Circus is an alternative travelers space for the restless voyager, the escape artist, the acrobat. It's in the heart of Athens, in the hip Psirri neighborhood, beside numerous eateries and watering holes and a short walk from worthwhile sites. City Circus is in a 4-story, restored early 20th century mansion, complete with fresco-ed ceilings, wrought-iron balconies and baroque tiles. We’ve dressed it up with vintage furniture, reclaimed materials, modern design elements and street art by a selection of fresh local talent. ... more   less
