About City Circus Athens Hostel

City Circus Hostel is an alternative travelers space for the restless voyager, the escape artist, the life acrobat. “Acrobat” literally means “a person that lives on the edge” and that is the idea of this circus: to dwell in the surreal, to embrace the weird, to explore with freedom. So whether you’re running away from something (we hope it’s not the law) or running towards something on your adventure, City Circus Athens Hostel is the ideal spot to rest your wandering feet and dreamy head.

City Circus opened its doors in the summer of 2012. Being fierce travelers ourselves, our desire was to create a hostel that suits our philosophy; a hostel that we ourselves would love to stay at; a place that offers accommodation of the highest standards and at the same time enables travelers to interact with each other, share their stories and feel like they are part of a large circus family. Our staff makes sure that every single one of our guests receives personalised treatment to make sure they make the most out of their stay in our city. We really hope that you enjoy the experience of staying with us as much as we do!
