Great location and very helpful staff. This was my 3rd time to stay here.


I didn't spend much of my 5 nights there, but found the place accommodating and comfortable. Would recommend to others. Did not include breakfast.


Small but nice hostel with great staff.


A great place to stay! Very nice staff, clean areas, big rooms with comfortable beds. Breakfast and a great location so close to downtown for such a low price is amazing. Highly recommend this place for a cheap, well-kept hostel literally up the road from the Egyptian Museum.


on the whole it's ok.

Light too weak in room for reading. No heater in room. Too little hot water. No chairs in entrance. Elevator did not work.

thank you for your Comment. we will add reading light in the rooms. for the chairs i belive we haveichairs all over the hostel as we show in the Fotos. maybe the elevator was proken but its working again. we do have hotwater around the 24 hours. hope to see you again in our hostel.


Location is excellent. No lockers in rooms. Staff are friendly. Not much of an atmosphere.


Great location, the place is safe. Come to Egypt! The organized tours were great with reasonable price! Friendly staff, especially EHAB, he's fun, friendly, smiley, hard worker and so is everyone else. I had fun and I'd highly recommend this hostel for budget travelers!

Hostel is located in a noisy area, you can heard noise the whole night and people 's smoke in your room. There are no information about breakfast time. The receptionist is sleeping deeply in working hours. They are so kindly, but is missing to provide good information.


Nice place, arrived at 5am and they put me in a bed for a few hours in the morning and let me stay in a twin when only booked a dorm, nice staff showed me to the bus stop for the pyramids would stay again
