A well located hostel, with helpful staff. Only reason I marked it down for atmosphere, is there are so few backpackers in Egypt, that its missing the vibe. I'd stay here again, and recommend Egypt!


Great [lace to stay in the heart of Cairo, Very helpuful staff! Would stay again!


Staff wad great, especially one driver! He was so friendly and helpful!


Friendly staff at a nice location. Rooms are spacious with high and comfy ceiling. Mustafa (probably the manager) can arrange train tickets even before you get to the hostel. That is very impressive. The place is a bit hard to find though, and you then need to ask locals for direction.


Staff is friendly and helpful. They offer tours but they don't try to pressure you into buying from them. Hotel is impeccably clean and the mattresses are very comfortable. There's also a liquor store across the street which is a hard find in Cairo.


What makes this Hostel very special is the amazing staff: Ahmed, Mustafa, Mohammed, Hussein and Nour are the perfect hosts, very friendly and helpful! You will feel like at home. They can organise tours as well (Pyramids, Upper Egypt, desert, etc.). The place is very clean and safe. Good breakfast included in price. Free wifi works well. Location in downtown Cairo, within walking distance from Tahrir square and the Egyptian Museum.


This was our second stay in a dorm this time. Staff again were still very friendly and helpful. Dorms didn't have lockers. It's the first place we have stayed that we have been pressured to give a 100% review. The staff mean well and it is a great place to stay. We are still giving a good review and would still choose to stay here again.


One of the best Hostel where I've stayed! I booked a twin room which was very clean and with a small balcony. Towels provided. Shared bathrooms are clean. Very good breakfast. Free wifi and a computer available. Excellent location in downtown Cairo, the Egyptian Museum is a 15min walk.


Staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. One of the staff members took us to a restaurant for lunch, helpful as we were new to the area. Booked our Desert tour throught the hostel, the white desert is amazing :) breakfast is good. Smoking policy is not enforced; when we checked in our private room had just been smoked in. Staff fixed the problem immediately; aired it out, cleaned it and sprayed it for us. We are coming back to stay again.

We are very happy for the days that we spent in Miami hotel. Was really a fantastic experience. They help us for organize our trip around Egypt. We went to the dessert, Dahab and a cruise in Luxor & Aswan .,was fantastic. Also the location to the hotel is in down town, very good!!! Trust the people who are working in the hostel, they are very nice.


The staff was extremely helpful, especially Ahmed. We came to Egypt without a plan and he planned our itinerary for us. Khaleed, our driver and guide to the pyramids was very knowledgable and knew almost everyone in Cairo. Very friendly atmosphere, making you feel like home. Would defintely recommend staying here.


This is a good place for young backpackers. The staff is really helpfull, and the service you get is according to price you pay. I would recomend this hostel to my friends.


An excellent spot in a lively area at the heart of Cairo. The staff were super friendly and helpful with all our questions and needs. They really went out of their way to make sure we had an awesome experience here. We loved our stay at the Miami and would definitely come back again.

Rooms were nice, and its definitely good value. Showers are a bit poor and broken, but it seems this is normal for Egypt. The staff were nice enough, however i would recommend booking things yourself in Egypt, i feel you get much better value for money, this goes for all hotels etc in Egypt, just DIY and youll get a far better deal.


We`ve stayed here for three days and we are very happy for choosing it as our accomodation. The young people who are running this hotel is always at your service for anything you can need, and with a smile in their faces. It is extreamly centrical and, for sure, we will recommend this hotel to our friends. Shot walk to Tahrir Sq and Egyptian Museum.

This hostel is a very good choice for backpackers. Its location is very good and the staff is A++! I strongly recommend it to everyone who doesn't look for any luxurious place for a few days in Cairo. Thank you guys!


We stayed in a Private DB Room, the air-con was amazing, the beds are great with soft pillows. I was sick for 2 days and they let us cancel our tour to Giza pyramids twice with out any dramas. Tour was very cheap and good. There is a kitchen, free WIFI, free breakfast and free tea/coffee all day. Checking out, we left our bags there and before we left they let us have a shower and let us call up our airline to check our tickets. The guys are amazing, friendly and so helpful. Thankyou!! 100%


There wasn't much of a kitchen, I don't recall laundry facilities, there were no lockers or storage areas, but in my experience all of the Egyptian hostels were this way. Also, the workers were quick to advertise their services in booking tours for you. The worker didn't even let me into the room or anything yet. They just keep talking and pitching their service. However, also in my experience all hostels in Egypt do this. And you will probably book tours at some point anyway.


The hostel is located right in the heart of town, The rooms are clean spacious with great staff who are always friendly! Ahmed is one of the best.
