Expert reviews

Lonely Planet review:

“It’s not the cheapest hostel going, but with its jaunty style and helpful staff, City Circus does lift the spirit more than most ultra budget lodgings.”

Telegraph review:

“Central, affordable lodgings are often bland and basic, but this hostel brims with warmth and charisma. Housed in a pair of handsome townhouses, there’s a sociable vibe in the large living room, a buzzy bistro and colourful roof terrace.”
