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.

    My stay at the hostel was really nice starting from the moment I arrived to the place. I was greeted in a really positive and friendly way that I instantly felt home. I had a really great stay so far. The staff and the place were really great, only that they didn't have breakfast last day I needed it but that's alright.

    Meramees Hostel A great way to experience Egypt! The Meramees is in a great location in Cairo, making it easy to explore the Khan el Kalil bazaar (recommend going at night) and the Egyptian Museum. The accommodations are clean and roomy - great breakfast in a communal dining room, good coffee, hot water, and strong wifi. Most importantly, the staff were really helpful. They arranged our whole trip down to Luxor, setting us up on the night train and arranging a very good guide. Mohamed was in t

    The staff are really, really amazing and helpful. I booked a tour with them and they were really accommodating when something went wrong. They were also very giving and just want to make sure you’re safe and happy. The dorms are nice, no bunk beds! Hot water and a really great breakfast. Highly recommend this hostel when in Cairo.

    The hostel is okay but what made my stay undesirable was one particular staff member. Immediately after I checked in he kept pushing this Aswan tour that I was NOT interested in participating in. After telling him no multiple times he got frustrated & just would not let it go. Then the next day he passive aggressively accused me of not paying the for my two night stay which I know for a fact I did. After explaining that I did pay it ended up getting resolved but it was still not professional.
