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, More

Staff were amazing, location is quite good and its clean. I am always resilient to book tours or private transportation, but I arranged my visit to North Saqqara and Dahshur with the hostel because these sites are kind of far away so it was a good decision. They also got my train ticket to More

The facilities were the only thing lacking at this fantastic hostel and I had such a good time I did not care! The lack of facilities was also just a temporary setback due to a hole in the water tank which was being rectified as I left. The hostel was very clean and comfortable and More

Doors to building/front of hostel never locked, although reception usually manned. No lockers in rooms. Staff mostly sitting around playing on phones/watching TV in the lounge - including through the night, making noise. No social area for guests as staff were always occupying it. Not More

I've stayed in quite a few hostels and this is by far my favorite of all them! The staff here are friendly and accommodating. I stayed here far longer than I intended to (close to one month) and was never made to feel that I've over-stayed my welcome. They have a genuine interest in you More
