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.

    By far one of the best hostels I’ve stayed at. Look no further if you’re looking for somewhere to stay in Cairo. The staff are incredible and very funny. The rooms and bathrooms are clean. It’s in the perfect location with the Egyptian museum and other attractions all within walking distance. I stayed here for 5 nights and the staff really made it feel like home. Meramees is definitely the place to stay if you’re in Cairo.

    loved this place, the staffs are welcoming and willing to help you with organizing everything, they have many tour options. The location is great, walking distance to the museum. very social vibes, even tho i stayed in a private room i found it really easy to meet and have a chat with other travelers. they can also book your train ticket for you if you are too lazy to get to the train station like me XD- ting

    Meramees Hostel definitely deserves it's title as the best hostel in Cairo. the staff is nice, welcoming and extremely helpful. A decent breakfast and a late checkout (12 pm) are part of the deal. We are especially thankful to Migu, that helped us a lot finding our way around.

    The location, the price and the reviews helped me to choose this place! The only thing that made me nervous was the lack of a full guard at the door but I didn’t have any security problems and the staff seemed to be present the whole time.

    The staff goes out of their way to make sure your stay is comfortable. The breakfast is a large serving of protein, fruit, vegetables and bread. Booking tours is very convenient at their reception, but costly,specifically the cruise. Overall all the place was kept clean. My only complaint is that when I used their luggage storage, my backpack was sprayed by a cat(s). The smell was unpleasant.

    The Meramees is a little hard to find but some locals were really helpful and got us there. Breakfast was great. Rooms were simple but good. Showers were wet rooms leaving the toilet covered in water fairly regularly. Only security was a lock on the dorm room door otherwise anyone can walk around. Other rooms seemed to be full of Arab men. Not really a place to be social. People working there were all really nice and helpful. WiFi is pretty average like all Egypt. Quite close to centre of Cairo
