Excellent hostel right near the train station. Great roof top terrace to chill out over a beer after a hot day touring the sights. Easy to meet fellow travellers. Mohammed and Mia do a superb free pick up service from the bus or train station. Top value.

Excellent location, very friendly staff, clean, secure. Everything was wonderful. I highly recommend this place.
The Hostel is a 10-15 min straight walk from Luxor Temple (You follow one road all the way).I stayed in a dorm room which was clean & presentable with great working AC.They have a roof terrace which is nice for chilling out, free breakfast & cheap tours; I payed £6 (UK) for a 5 hour tour of the Valley of the Kings (excluding ticket price), which is value for money.The wifi was also super & computers are available if you haven't brought your laptop or android etc.Definitely stay here!
The best place in all of Egypt. I stayed in Alexandria, and Cairo, which the hostels had very bad staff. So, I was not expecting anything better here in Luxur, but to my surprise it was the best place. The Staff is really outstanding, they did not overcharge me for anything not even water. For tours we got charge a lot less than other people that were on the same tour. The rooms are so, so clean and have AC, and a balcony. The location is fantastic too! Walking distance from everything!!
Fantastic, Mia and staff so welcoming and helpful. Mia organised a car and driver for us, plus airport transfer. She packed a breakfast pack for us for our early morning start to the Valley of the Kings etc. Room was comfortable and clean, bathroom, breakfast and reception spotless. I would recommend the Boomerang. Thanks
Wow! This was an amazing hostel, steps away from the train station and near the VERY tasty Sofra restaurant. The tour they set us up on to see Valley of the Kings was incredible and with a very reputable (written up in Lonely Planet) guide Aladdin! The facilities are out of this world and they keep it super clean. The rooftop bar is a much needed escape from the tourism hungry people of Luxor.
Fantastic hostel, with a great atmosphere, security (main door locked), a very helpful staff and great facilities (roof terrace, wifi at every floor, 3 computers). The hotel propose tours with good prices (west bank, banana island, Denderah...). I highly recommend it! Only "problem": the "shared bathroom" rooms have no A/C, only the ensuite rooms has it. After a night of no sleeping because of the heat, I asked to change room and got one with A/C. Be careful when you book!
Omar, the guy running the front desk, is perhaps the best hotel staff I have come across in all my travels. His interests were aligned with our interests - he helped us get cheap food and told us the best way to travel to Karnak. He was attentive and great. This hotel is also excellent. One of the cleanest Ive ever stayed in. Fantastic roof top area to chill out and good breakfast. EXCELLENT value for money. I don't know why you would stay anywhere else in Luxor.
Great beds, very comfortable, the staff is friendly and helps organizing trips
Don't worry for half day trip to West Bank as the staff will offer you immediately after checking in and they will tell you what time to wake up, take shower, have breakfast and leave. The driver of the airport transport may also tell you his car is not allowed to pass through the guard, but you may find out that he just wants to save LE5 and you have to walk a distance with your backpack.
We stayed there for around one week. It was really nice, especially the breaketfast. The loacation is in the city center Although it was a little bit noisy, it is very convienvient. Nice and worthy!

This is a great hostel located just a few minutes from the town center. The staff, especially Omar, are very helpful and will arrange tours, cars, etc. for you, plus they'll make sure you don't get scammed or hassled by your tour operators. The dorm was perfectly fine with decent showers. The rooftop was an awesome place to lounge and meet others in the evening. Breakfast is 15LE ($2.50USd) and definitely worth it, and the West Bank tour for 65LE is a great deal and worth doing.
One of my favourite hostels in Egypt. Looks kind of dingy from the outside, but friendly helpful staff, lovely room, amazon buffet breakfast an a beatiful rooftop terrace where you can chill out and drink/smoke. They let me leave my stuff there and use all the facilities after checkout an before my train.
Wow! 11/10! Safe, Secure, Clean. Central but quiet enough to sleep. Beautiful simple atmospheric balconied rooms. Only 10 minutes from station, Nile & Luxor Museum. Outstanding breakfast. 2minutes from ‘Sofra’ ~ Luxor’s best restaurant. Superb Hot showers and roof chillout space. Cheery affable helpful staff (Omar & Mohamed 'Thank You!'). My Mum would have stopped worrying if she’d have seen it ~ Brilliant Place! And Egypt dear Egypt THANK YOU. Your sights, sounds, stories & people thrilled me.
Oasis in the desert.. this is the best hostel I ever stayed. For 15 LE you get a great breakfast, buffet with cereal, yoghurt, jam, fruit, juice, lot of jam...panqueque or omelette. They have a roof when you can finish a very tiring journey with an excellent very cold beer or shisha, the perfect place to met people. Everithing is very clean (strange in Egipt) and youy have lots of bathroom to choose. I really want to thanks boomerang hostel, Omar and staff for making my stay in Luxor so pleasant
this is the best place to stay in Luxor in its category, (and not only in its category) . Definitely! I was there three times already. breakfast is excellent, the rooms are perfectly clean and so is the bathroom (I used a shared one and it was like having my own private one). Above all, staff is professional, kind, friendly and cool. You can trust any advice they will give to you. Ask them, they will be of great help. Thank you Omar,

Nice hostel with a wonderful roof terrace that we could have stayed at all day. They also organised a tour for us.
Very helpful staff and a great place to use as base or just relax on rooftop. Always a cold beer on hand. Great breakfast to start the day. Nice and easy going place, really enjoyed my stay
Great place. The location of Boomerang is tops--just three minutes from the train station, and less than a mile from the Luxor Temple, in an authentic neighborhood, free of hawkers. Mohammed and Omar are wonderful--welcoming, low key, and helpful. We stayed one night before a cruise, but went back twice to hang out and use the internet. We booked a private tour with guide to the west bank for 250LE--a fraction of what it cost through the cruise ship. Breakfast good, 15LE; internet cheap, 5LE/hr.
