Staying in this hostel is just awesome. Good price, quality, more than helpful staff, located in the center of Cairo's downtown, It's so close to metro station.. many restaurants and cafe are around fro excellent prices and quality.. the rooms are always clean and the wi-fi is available in all the floors. The reception team is just nice and so welcoming and tries hard to makes things so easy for you - totally recommended

This is a great hostel, right in the heart of Cairo, with nearly everything in walking distance. It's great value for money, with clean, air-conned rooms. You are well looked after, with the staff happy to help and advise. There's no pushing for tours or excursions, which is really nice, and there's a nice communal area to chat with other guests. I had a slight problem with a younger member of staff, but the response from the management was excellent; they really made sure I had a good stay.

I loved this place! The owner, Mohamed, is the best! I had no idea what to do for 3 days and Mohamed gave me a list of what I should do; he helped me book everything. My spontaneous trip was all planned out within 24 hrs right before my eyes! Mohamed goes above and beyond with the explanations and tries to really help his guests because you can see he cares. The staff tries to make you feel comfortable and safe as well. Location is close to the Egyptian Museum and the Facilities are clean.

The staff is so friendly and welcoming. They'll help you book EVERYTHING (tours, trains, etc) to get a fair price. They'll even take you out for a night on the town for a true local experience. The rooms are large and comfortable with hot water and AC. My fiance and I loved this hostel and can't wait to stay at Meramees again when we go back to Cairo!

I had a great time there even though I was there during tumultuous time. The staff are great! They're friendly and very helpful. They helped me planned other trips when I couldn't do my other trip and they made sure that I went on that trip so that I would have a great time in Egypt. But even when I spent a lot of time in Cairo just hanging out at the hostel, it was still pretty fun. Everyone over there, the staff and other occupants, were happy to have a long and lengthy discussion :-)

!CAUTION! When transferred back to the Airport I got picked up by a man called ACHMED. He works for the Hostel, speaks English very swell and seemed like a fine guy. Be careful! He is dangerous. Not only is his driving completely reckless (YES, even compared to the chaotic Egyptian traffic) he is also violent. First he rammed another car while going 80 km/h, than he stopped and started a fight with that other driver and put me and my safety willingly in danger. Ask for annother driver !!!

Nice hostel, well priced and very well located. Near Tahir Square a subway stations. If you want to tour around Luxor and Aswan they can provide it with a very reasonable price. Would stay there again.

Rooms urgently need to be improved and cleaned, the one where I slept smelled really bad. Most of the staff is very nice/helpful except for the drivers. Didn't like the drivers who will almost "kidnapped" you to take you to the stores where they get a commission (lotus flower/papyrus/camels).

It was the best option after staying in 2 other hostels in Cairo which I didn't like at all. It's located just few steps from a streets full of coffee houses, a supermarket and a restaurant. The staff are very friendly and helpful and my room had a balcony and air conditioned. There's also a living room that makes you feel like home. I'd definitely recommend this hostel! Many other hostels in Cairo are creepy as I've checked them my self!

The staff is really great, they helped us for a lot of thing. We left some lugages for a long time in the storage room for free. They were really great. Breakfast was great, like everywhere else in egypt, if you aren't bored to eat bread and egg. The rooms was clean except for the horrible cat urine smell. Toilet and shower was clean also but floaded. They were really helping, especially for the lift to the airport. Really cheap!

It`s a great hostel. Great tours. Nice car. You will learn to love this place just as it is. They are very friendly. You will never feel lonely if they are around. I'll be there if one day I go back to Egipt.
