New, modern and absolutely clean. Great location too. Only issue i had was the hot water. Cant seem to get it, either having to wait too long for it to warm up or not at all. Strange considering the newish facilities, other fellow guests had the same problem too. So hope they either fix it up or teach us how to get it! But top marks for everything else!
The personal elements of Madja, Momma ( my personal angel and hero) in addition to the great facilities, clean toilets, hot water great breakfast, tea and bosnian coffee all make this place a winner on all counts. The difference between a good and great hostel is the warmth and sincere personality which this place exudes in abundance. I didnt go for the tour by Bata, but have heard good things about it. This place is an institution which will be a hard act for any to follow.
High prices and really small rooms. Not their fault, its just a tourist destination its high prices for everything. Clean toilets and beds and it is in the old town.
Good location, near the bus/ train station. Not too far a walk to the important things. Nice staff, but its a high walk up to the 5th floor when the elevator is not working.( i suspect that it never works haha). Beds a little iffy but nice common area and kitchen.
Great place, excellent facilities and looks cool too. Good location, by all accounts should score high points for me. Unfortunately, my stay was marred by very poor guests behavior from USA. Rowdy without consideration for other guests, drunk even up till 3 to 4 am making it impossible to rest. I understand that this may not be the hostels fault but i personally feel that the staff needs to take responsibility and enforce some common courtesy rules. Nothing was done by staff. Hope they change.
Great facilities, everything was clean, high standard. Staff were great, especially Rafael and another guy( forgot his name sorry). Professional and helpful too. Top class indeed for a really cheap price in my personal opinion.
Great staff like Ana and Monica, super helpful and self catering facilities were excellent. Toilets were clean and hot water was available all the time. However, maybe because i was unlucky there was a huge group of kids/ adults staying and they made so much noise! Especially the adult men till late at night obviously drunk and shouting. Maybe the hostel should enforce some rules for the convenience pf other guests... But this should not detract from this great hostel.
Slightly dated rooms and gloomy interior. Clean nontheless but able to get better value along Thamel for the same standard.
I am sorry, but this place is totally awesome. The staff and facilities top notch. The advice and tips to travel around, arrangements always well prepared. I can't help but give top marks.
Super location facing the corniche and river amd most likely a great view from your room. Honest staff and helpful, helps when Aswan is not exactly a friendly or welcoming area. Can arrange cheap transport to Abu Simbel easily. However, rooms and facilities are a little old. But considering the location and price, very good value for money. Its near to cheap food too along the souq at the back but tourists should be careful as pickpockets do try their luck often.
