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... More

This hostel has a big personality! It's location is amazing, right in the heart of amazing restaurants that are just as Quirky and with their own personalities. It also had its own restuarant and offer deals on breakfast and dinner. It has a little rooftop area with great views. Staff were informative and very helpful!

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
