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.

    When in Cairo as a budget traveller, Meramees Hostel is the best place to stay! They eased all my anxieties about traveling alone to Egypt – from the minute I left the airport all the way to the minute I took off. They even had affordable planned itineraries out for easy trips in and out of Cairo. Everything was very clean and wifi was amazing! My stay couldn't be better but it was because of the staff (Migo, Ahmed, Youssef, Tallat and especially Ramy!) made Cairo unforgettable. Def recommend!

    The location cannot be better, it’s a nice 10 mins walking to the Egyptian museum and there are many really cheap and tasty options around. The hostel is very clean and safe. I spent a total of 3 nights here, although initially I was only supposed to stay 1 night, I left my other hostel in Giza to come back here. The building is super quiet and the beds are really good, it’s the only place I got rest during my 10 day trip in Egypt. Also, the best breakfast I’ve had at a hostel. 10/10.

    This hostel is very highly recommended. Rooms were very spacious and very clean. There were cleaners that always made sure the bathrooms/toilets and hallways were cleaned. The hostel also provided a good, sufficient breakfast every morning which was definitely a highlight. Staff were kind friendly and they would help you organise or plan trips just to make your trip to Egypt enjoyable and comfortable!

    A spontaneous trip for my bday and was told about this hostel by a friend who has been here before. I was connected with the owner Ahmed before arrival and told him how long I was in Egypt. He had an airport pick-up for me waiting. Once I arrived at about 12AM, Ahmed greeted me personally and had an entire itinerary for Egypt ready with a fair price with tours that are must see. He even checked up on me throughout the trip. Ahmed got me a surprise bday gift too! Great staff that helped me a lot!

    Friendly staffs, nice,big, clean room & bathroom. Stayed in Meramees for 3 nights. Good breakfast, great falafel :) - had breakfast once during our 3 night stay because of our 7:30 am schedule & their bf starts @ 8:30 am. Staffs are pushy to sell tours. Bought the arrival pick up service. Taxi condition was really poor. Read the reviews prior to coming to Cairo WIFI didn't work from room # 511 & 512 -- as many other reviewers reported. WE WILL STAY IN OTHER HOSTEL IN OUR NEXT VISIT.
