    Amazing hostel, would recommend to all! As a solo female traveller, I felt very welcomed and safe. The staff were very friendly and happy to give recommendations for site seeing as well as where to eat. The hostel itself was clean and tidy. I only spent 2 days in Alexandria but loved it, so much to see and do and the food is amazing!

    Good spot. Definitely recommend for anyone travelling to Alex. Nice staff and a good common area. One tip would be to put curtains on the dorm beds to give people privacy. Though some hostels have these already, every hostel should - at this stage - be required to have them in order to get a top rating

    The rooms didn't lock, which I found weird. The location on Google Maps takes you to the French's a couple blocks further - there's a sign at the building. The staff was awesome and the atmosphere was very friendly. The day I arrived I was welcomed with a free Iftar dinner for Ramadan which was awesome! The hot water was hit and miss and the wifi never seemed to work for me.

    It’s being in downtown is a great advantage. Rooms were big, airy and beds were comfortable. Bathroom were always clean and the common area is amazing. There is a kitchen which could benefit from a bit of sprucing up but overall it is a good place to stay in Alexandria. And the staff were very helpful and accommodating.
