ATMs and exchange offices are also around the corner.

    this was a great hassle to stay at. I truly enjoyed the staff hospitality. This is a very laid-back hostel. The balcony is very nice on the second floor next to the restroom door. The dorm beds are very nice, do you have curtains for privacy, and it is very cool at night with the air conditioner. It’s also very quiet at night time. I was hoping this would be a little bit more lively, but I still had a great time.

    Had a great stay here. The staff were beyond amazing, there to help with anything we needed - the airport transfer was seamless, they arranged covid tests we needed for travel, stored luggage to accommodate our travel plans, made us breakfast and provided good recommendations. The common spaces were great for working or reading. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable, it was just enjoyable overall and exactly what we needed. Would def recommend to others and stay here again.

    Madina Hostel was my first experience at a hostel. I will definitely seek hostels going forward. Madina was accurate to description. Very clean, great atmosphere, decent breakfast. The staff was very helpful with any accommodations needed. I traveled with family and friends. A group of 5. We rented 3 units. 2 ensuite double beds and 1 double bed, shared bathroom. Although the hostel was fully booked, there’s was enough space for everyone to enjoy. Thank You madina for having us!

    Great place, wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Cairo! Awesome social atmosphere if you want it but no problem just coming in and crashing either. All the staff was super friendly and accommodating, location was prime, and the beds were comfy. Thanks for an awesome stay!

    Loved this hostel!! Excellent location right in the centre of Cairo, close to the Egyptian Museum and Tahir Square. The staff were wonderful, very friendly and helpful. There's a really great atmosphere in the common area, easy to meet people. The beds were comfy and the bathrooms clean. Would definitely recommend to anyone and will stay here again next time I'm in Cairo!!

    It has the advantage of being close to everything, Sadat metro station, cash machines, Tahrir Square and the famed Egyptian Museum. There is free breakfast which is quite good. Rooms were well appointed and the toilets were always kept clean. Staff were always very helpful. I just wish they had a locker installed somewhere were we could deposit some small items like passport, etc.

    Very Good

    It was a nice stay. There were a few things that were not great. I arrived late and found it difficult to find the place since there are not too many signs. The elevator that you use is very flimsy and made me concerned to use. Lastly, there wasn't much security in Front to protect us from some of the homeless people sleep on the lower floors.
