    This Hotel is amazing! Right in Tahir square. Right next to the metro and the Egyptian museum and walking distance to local restaurants. The staff is honest, friendly, and the rooms are clean and the bathrooms are decent. I highly recommend this place!

    Very central location. Good view on the 9th floor with dorm room. The staff were very helpful and they even resolved an issue with overpriced camel riding in Giza for me. When you haggle, pay no more than 1/4 of the price they initially call for. All in all, very good stay and will defiantly recommend to others and stay here again.

    Really wanted to leave a positive review but this place was shocking. Upon arriving the owner told me that the dorm was full even though I had made a booking. After 5 minutes of arguing he finally gave in and showed me to the dorm....the dorm had about 8 beds, all of which were empty. The bed sheets had dirt all over them and the wifi didn't work. Really not even worth the money.

    I've made a confirmed booking online for 2 beds/dorm room. When we arrived and asked to check in, the receptionist told us that there were no available beds and your booking wasn't confirmed because we haven't called you by phone to do so. However, I've shown them my booking reference number. After a lot of arguments, he have us those 2 beds but with a higher rate and also without the deposit amount we've made online.
