    I can only recommend the hostel. The location is fantastic. It is clean and the people are extremely nice and friendly. We were able to ask the staff about anything and we were helped. Whether it was choosing excursions or finding a restaurant or the right bar or club to go to. This hostel made our trip to Egypt a unique experience.

    We stayed here for just a night but we had a lovely stay. We arrived quite late from the train and they were kind enough to show us around the hostel. Hot shower, clean hostel, great view from the top and comfortable room. We slept very well. We met a couple other backpackers. The staff was very kind. They helped us out with airport questions, covid exams, and local transportation. Thank you guys SO much! They have a big heart to help out :).

    Wake up Cairo was cool. Roomy dorms, with air con that works and bathrooms are basic but clean. Shibu was excellent with giving me advice on travel, and graciously let me keep my bags there for a small cost. Happy with my stay there. Would recommend!

    This was a great choice. The staff are nice and trustworthy. We stayed for 2 nights and couldn't be happier with it. Good wifi, the breakfast was nice. It was a bit cold at night and the early morning prayer is super loud but all a part of the culture.

    Pros Very close to Egyptian museum. Safe neighborhood. Very friendly staff that can book tours for you. AC and hot water worked well. Comfortable beds. Cons Bldg hostel is in ( not the hostel itself) is filthy like all of Cairo. Minimal facilities- there’s a small common room for breakfast, socializing, smoking. Very simple but filling breakfast- one boiled egg, three bread, coffee, yogurt, jam, cheese. My safe didn’t work.
