My daughter (9) and I absolutely loved this hostel. We were made to feel totally at home there . All of the staff were very friendly, helpful and kind. The place was clean and we felt very safe . The location was perfect- literally just across the road from the bus station and just along the road from the underground tube station! From up on the 7th floor, there was an amazing view of the river Nile and the changing colours of the spectacular Cairo tower! We will definitely stay there again.

By far the worst hostel I've stayed at. The room was disgusting. There was dirt and grime everywhere, the bedding looked like it hadn't been washed in ages and the mattresses were probably found in King Tut's tomb. It smelled awful and the AC unit smoked. My sister found a straight pin in her bed when it nearly stabbed her. The bathrooms across the hall were filthy as well. The staff stayed up late watching TV very loudly, and there's a minaret right outside the window. You can imagine...

Dear, We are still wondering here about it..if it a serious one or a joke!Among more than 250 reviews in hostelworld we've not seen something similar! we've positive and negative reviews&we do believe that's how it should be..but your review didn't touch any fact!we're not very old hostel which keeps items from King Tut time:) and we keep always our maintenance plans for our place.we don't understand how come your ac unit was burning and making smoke and you kept it as a secret:)
