    The hostal was very well located, clean and very nice environment. The rooms just perfect to arrive after a long hot day outside and chill in the comfy bed with good privacy. The best of staying at this place was the staff, everyone was so kind and helpful giving you tips and ideas of where to go or what else could you do to explore the city. If you’re planing on visiting Egypt, Madina Hostel is the perfect option to stay. To my friends Mostafa, Yussuf and there was one girl (forgot the name), thank you ver

    We stayed at Madina Hostel for 3 nights in Cairo. We booked a private room, it was beautiful, with big windows and a balcony overlooking the city. The hostel is on the 10th floor of the building and you get an awesome view. The highlight was the free breakfast, which is cooked fresh and has a huge selection of local dishes. Easily the best breakfast we've ever had at a hostel! The staff are warm and welcoming and do a great job making you feel welcome and at home - overall we were delighted!

    Fantastic hostel very close to the Egyptian museum. The staff were all extremely welcoming and friendly, the included breakfast was delicious, the space welcoming, and the individual room I booked very comfortable with air con that made napping during the day much nicer. I wish I could have stayed more than just one day and I would gladly stay again!

    I was in Cairo on a stopover for two nights and I had a wonderful stay at Madina Hostel. The staff were very helpful, caring and friendly and lovely to talk to. I was luckily enough to be there one night when they cooked a BBQ dinner for everyone staying, it was really delicious and a huge treat to have a home cooked meal. Thanks Madina 🙂

    Great place! Love the staff and they actually invited me to go drinking and took us on a boat around the Nile to go party! Great location and free breakfast too! Maybe add more organized events and a security locker for your stuff since there wasn’t one. But other then that was great!

    Amazing staff, friendly and helpful. Although there are not lockers I left my backpack in the room with my computer and it was there always when I came back. It is close to the old town, however it is far enough from the crowd and noise. The building is a bit old, as most everything in Cairo, nevertheless the hostel is well maintained. Great traditional breakfast. Very good option to stay in Downtown for a good price and quality.
