City Circus Hostel opened its doors in the summer of 2012. Since the founders of the hostel are fierce travellers themselves, their desire was to create a hostel that suits their philosophy. They followed their philosophy and ended up creating a beautiful hostel where they themselves also would love to stay.
City Circus Hostel is a place that offers accommodation of the highest standards and at the same time enables travellers to interact with each other, share their stories and feel like they are parts of a large circus family. The hostel's staff is very successful at providing personalized service to every single one of their guests to make sure he or she makes the most out of his or her stay in the Greek capital.
City Circus Hostel is in the heart of Athens, in Psirri (Psyrri) which is the edgy and hip neighborhood. Psirri is also a district that is fast becoming the center of Athens’ Ghetto Tourism. The hostel is close to numerous eateries, cafes and bars and a short walk or bike ride from any sites in Athens. If you’re not the self-motored type, the Metro and Train are only 300 meters away.
In the hostel, there are several different types of rooms, ranging from 4, 6 or 8-bed dormitories to doubles/twins or quadruple privates. Grab a cup of coffee and take your time to explore the hostel's photo galleries and pick the one that suits you best. Then, head on to the booking page to check for availability on the date you plan to visit Athens!

THE HISTORY OF THE CITY CIRCUS BUILDING
The two buildings that house City Circus Hostel and Zampanó Restaurant, are dated from the late 19th century and have been declared historical monuments. Being regarded as the symbol of turn-of-the-century Greek architecture, they are considered a cultural cornerstone of the Psyrri area. The buildings remained largely unused from 1970 until 2011 when the City Circus team discovered it in their search for the ideal location. It was a perfect match. After a whole year of preparations and internal redesign work, City Circus opened its doors in the summer of 2012 and quickly became one of the highest rated hostels in Europe.
