Freedom Hostel is truly my "Home Away from Home". I usually prefer hotels but this hostel came highly recommended and this is my third stay here over the past 3 years. The staff is amazingly low key, helpful and a delight to be around. The location is situated in the heart of downtown and is and surrounded by cafes, shops, restaurants and only a 10 minute walk from the Egyptian Museum and the iconic Tahrir Square. The rooms are spacious and exceptionally clean and the showers are spectacular!

Very hard to find, in a building construction that looks like a abandoned building. Kind of sketchy down town area and about 20-30mins walk to egypt museum (not 10 like they say). Breakfast was fine and clean enough though I woke up with lots of bites that most likely came from Mosquitos. No atmosphere at all and felt very unwanted

In one word: AWSOME! First, you will not find any staff more attentive than in Freedom. Is very center and safe. The cleaning is up standards compared with any other place in Egypt and the price is just great! Is small enough to be familiar and comfortable. It is so great that it even has hair dryer!.. FREEDOM HOSTEL! We will be back...

It is the place to be in Cairo! The staff is amazing, very hospitable, always ready to help you out, organizes trips and airport pick ups, and even passes by your room with coffee when your back exhausted from a day's out. The location could not be better, in the heart of Cairo with sights and shops just nearby. Another big plus of the place is its cleanliness. It is great value for money and I recommend the Freedom Hostel to everybody visiting Cairo.

Loved this Hostel. Peter and all the staff were great, they helped with everything and made our trip and stay in Cairo extremely pleasant and special. We endured some extreme conditions due to the political tension in the country but Peter and the staff were very accommodating with this, helping us pick the best times and places to go. Would absolutely recommend this to anyone!

Great hospitality, the staff would serve you tea in the dorm after a busy sightseeing day. Also I really appreciated that they organised transportation to the pyramids for us for a very reasonable price. Thank you!

Love this place! Peter and his staff are welcoming, knowledgeable and warm. They are excellent resources for anything you'd like to do in Egypt. Despite the instability, I found Cairo to be safe and Egyptians are very friendly. This is an excellent opportunity to see history in the making! Do not believe all that you see in the media. Now is the time.

The 3 biggest pluses for Freedom Hostel are location, staff and cleanliness. It's located perfectly in downtown Cairo, close to the museum, Nile, ATM's, shops and great restaurants and cafes. With excellent staff that are always there to assist you with any need possible. Cleanliness is also one of the big factors in this hostel. I really enjoyed the welcoming, homely feel it has and would definitely recommend a stay at Freedom Hostel for anybody planning a trip to Cairo. Sukran Freedom Hostel!

Great hostel in downtown Cairo. The staff were great and helpful. Very friendly and honest... They were happy to help me when ever I had a special need (using a phone, washing my clothing, directions/advice) and I highly recommend a visit here.... One of the big + was the cleanliness of the Hostel... I've stayed in a few hostels and Cairo and this one is definitely neat and tidy and free of anything nasty lol. Thanks guys

Stayed her for around a week! Cool staff, I was sick in the middle of my trip and they were really accommodating. Place is clean, right in downtown so is lots of local cafes and stuff near by. the lady in the morning is super sweet. Islam and peter were really cool and was a great way to spend my first week in egypt. Thanks guys for everything!
