We are located in the heart of Alexandria, surrounded by a plethora of great sights, restaurants & cafes. We've listed a few for you to prepare yourself before arriving in Egypt: Bibliotecha Alexandrina (10 min.), Roman Amphitheatre (20 min.), Citadel of Qaitbay (25 min.), Montaza Palace & Gardens (40 min.), Pompey's Pillar (20 min.), Catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa (20 min.), Saint Mark's Coptic Cathedral (10 min.), Abu El Abbas El Morsi Mosque (20 min.).

    Spectacular location. 10th story with balcony overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Wonderful hosts and a delicious breakfast included. Tricky to take the elevator to the 10th floor when you arrive. I tailgated. After that you have a key fob that allows 10th floor on the elevator. You will love your stay here.

    Probably the best- if not, one of the best- hostels I've ever stayed in. It's not just a nice place and a good location overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, but the people who run the place are lovely, cool folks who really want you to feel comfortable and at home. I stayed 22nd-25th Dec, so just before Christmas, and we had some fun activities to bring guests together. The hostel also has a really cool and chilled vibe. All in all, I loved it, and will definitely stay here next time!

    It is very clean and its common area is very comfortable. If you wanna refresh your mind or you are a freelancer who always work with your laptop, here is a good place. staffs are very nice since i was unlucky to find the location during a rainy day, staffs contacted me via email at midnight and took me to hostel by car on the next day afternoon. Also they bought me a traditional dessert and invited me to join their dinner. So Delicious as well as breakfast and milkshake. Glad to have this stay!

    Really good hostel, one of the few budget places in Alexandria that delivers a good service. I really hope they do well and grow. Welcoming staff, really good bed, great showers. Location is OK, not the best, but Uber is really cheap in Alexandria.
