The place is very friendly but quiet. The staff is really friendly and helpful, they recommend us places to visit, restaurants and stuff around the hostel. We booked a private room (001) with private bathroom included, they have a small hairdryer and towels included as well .. the breakfast was for free, it's a buffet on the restaurant next to...

The staff were delightful and were more than happy to offer assistance and advice. The beds were amazing, so comfortable, each bed has a plug (to charge your phone) and a light. The showers were big, powerful and hot and the cubicle was very nicely tiled. The hostel location is very good, walking distance to a number of attractions (the...

Love the neighborhood, it's funky and cool. It can be a bit noisy at night, but nothing that can't be solved with ear plugs. I was here on New Years and it was fine; no raging parties or raging anyone. I found a good mix of all ages staying here. The interior is clean and the beds super comfy. Be...

When my husband told me "hostel" I thought he made a mistake and meant "hotel." I threw caution to the wind and could not have been more delighted. We had the loft room (private bathroom, kitchen) with a patio (that can be utilized by other guests) with a view of The Acropolis. Breakfast buffet had bread, jam, cheese, ham, eggs,...

I was so lucky to have found this amazing hostel in Athens! For sure it's the cleanest hostel I have ever been but I wouldn't just limit it to the hostel category. It could easily be a boutique hotel with an alternative and relaxed atmosphere. I have stayed there two nights with my friend in a 4 bed dorm, which...

Great service, comfortable beds and the restaurant is very good! We went only for a weekend but the guy at the reception gave us very good trips to see the city. It's very well located in the city centre close to the acropolis

A wonderful hostel in the heart of Athens. The overall decoration makes you feel like you're home, very cosy and easy-going. Best beds I've ever slept in a hostel, extremely clean and quiet during night (very important if you are travelling a lot and in need of a good rest!) Staff members were very helpful and polite, with good knowledge...

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. Friendly staff with good advice of things to do. Nice kitchen. Big and comfortable bed. Everything was clean and looked new. I couldn't try breakfast because it starts at 8am and everyday I was leaving before. The common room gets very noisy in the late afternoon because of the restaurant....

It was a great surprise for us to find this lovely Hostel! The location is great, we got a huge room which perfectly accommodated our family of four. The staff was very helpful and friendly and breakfast was simple but fulfilling. We don't have anything bad to say about the place! The price was super affordable and if I ever...

If you come in at night you might be a little concerned because a fair bit of the area looks dodgy but as I quickly learned in Athens, this just means there are gems to be discovered. This hostel is a little away from the main touristy area and in a really hip area of Athens with plenty of great...

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
