We couldn't have been happier with this hostel. We booked a private en suite for 2 nights in mid-October. When we first arrived in the cab, driving through many roads with graffiti and etc, we questioned for a split second and then put our trust in previous reviewers - they were completely right. City Circus is in a fantastic location near the heart of Psirri nightlife - far enough away to be quiet but close enough to be within 3 blocks of some fantastic restaurants and bars. (Niklaus restaurant was great, by recommendation, and Beer Time is a new favorite bar.) Our room was in the basement and as some others have said, sound does carry and we did hear some couples checking out in the early morning. Shower was fantastic - actual hot water that lasted more than 2 minutes! City Circus also recommended the free walking tour, which we took and loved! Highly recommend - we will stay here if we are ever in Athens again!
- 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
