Friendly staff who are eager to help, a great relaxed environment, and an awesome location close to Hadrian's Library and with a great view of the Acropolis from the rooftop terras. The bathrooms were clean, the beds were sturdy and comfortable, and all in all everything was really amazing. Breakfast was also incredible.

Liked: Breakfast was a great as everyone said, and the area's not dodgy - just artsy and cool. Loved it.

Disliked: While it's a great hostel be careful if you book a double en suite room at a cheap price. You end up in the basement, which is fine in theory as the room is still well-equipped and well decorated. However, the room is directly below the breakfast area so you get woken up super early by everyone getting breakfast - it basically sounds like someone's moving all the furniture around above your head!

Liked: Was very clean, good breakfast and great area to explore Athens.

Disliked: The bathroom wasn't private, you had to leave the room, while there were notes on the toilet and shower door saying room 202 only anyone could use it. Would be the only downside at the website advertises private ensuite - this was not the case.

Liked: City Circus is by far the best hostel I've ever stayed at. We find here all the elements we could ask for in a hostel such as friendly and knowledgeable staff, ideal location, comfortable beds and that is just to name a few. City circus is also delightfully decorated. Which add so much to the experience. This is the hostel to stay at while in Athens

Liked: This hostel is fantastic! I stayed in one of the 4-bed dorms with a private bathroom and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The whole building is clean and the facilities are exceptional (including breakfast and free wi-fi in rooms). The staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooftop area overlooking the Acropolis is amazing. The location is perfect - right in the heart of the city. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommended this place to all budget travelers.

Disliked: There really is nothing to dislike - this was one of the best hostels I've stayed in for cleanliness and comfort. My only comment would be that there wasn't much of a friendly atmosphere between the people staying there - but this might just have been the mix of people there during my stay.

Liked: I stayed at City Circus with two friends. We made seperate bookings and the staff promptly responded to my email and it was not a problem. Staff were extremely attentive and very helpful - no question too silly or small. Great common room to meet others. Amazing free breakfast, muesli, fruit, yoghurt, boiled eggs, juices, coffee, herbal teas etc. Generous! Hostel has had recent renovations which did not disturb us, but only extended the amount of people that can stay at this great hostel. Private bathrooms were modern and clean. Highly recommend this place.

Disliked: Nothing at all to fault.
