Property Description

The hostel has been warmly recommended by most major guidebooks, including Lonely Planet, Le guide de Routerd and more.

This well-positioned hostel is relaxed and easy-going, with a great atmosphere and friendly staff that make you feel at home.

From the moment you walk into the lobby you sense the laid-back, welcoming vibe of MERAMEES hostel Little touches like fresh flowers, books, CDs and casual sofas in the lobby help make it feel like you're dropping by to see friends at home rather than checking into a hotel.

The casual majlis (meeting room) off the lobby where breakfast is served makes a good place to hang out after a hot day's sightseeing.

The rooms themselves have high ceilings, wooden floorboards, large windows and French doors leading onto balconies, and there are shared bathrooms and rooms with own bathrooms and toilets apart from the dorm room. Helpful stuff gives his guests plenty of advice about visiting Cairo and other parts of Egypt . The Meramees is certainly one of the more friendly options around down town.

    Meramees was the perfect hostel for me to immerse myself in Cairo. The staff was kind to me and helped me plan all of my excursions. The hostel has working WiFi, A/C inside the bedrooms, and key locking drawers. They helped me arrange trips to the Giza Pyramids, Alexandria, and Black and White Desert and I enjoyed all of them. WARNING: almost everyone in Cairo will try to hustle you out of your money by being friendly to you. It totally sucks, but that's just how Egypt is.

    Great location and awesome staff. Hostel is on the 5&6 floors of the building, which is super central to shopping, Tahrir Sq and the Egyptian museum. Dorm room was clean and every bed has an outlet which is nice. The breakfast was also amazing. Filling and delicious. Overall great value for money.

    We booked this place for 2 nights but checked out after first night because our terrible experience. No cleanliness at all, no water in the toilet and bathroom, unsafe elevator and many more to write. We booked taxi through this place and it was very expensive compared to other taxis. We agreed the expensive taxi fare for comfort however they sent us 1970 model taxi, no aircon, no seatbelt. We felt really unsafe in the taxi; do not use any tour or anything through this hostel because expensive
