We arrived in Cairo at 6:30am but were not able to check-in until 12pm. This should have been made clear before we arrived as the hostel was aware of our flight time. Also, the hostel tried to charge us for the supposedly free airport pick-up on more than one occasion, not to mention rip us off by arranging trips for us. I had to request for our blankets to be washed as they smelt so bad and a hoover also. Staff tried to add 2 of my friends on FB after the trip, not exactly very professional.
