Very central location in bustling downtown Cairo: Walking distance from the Egyptian Museum, main railway station and the best local food in town! Dont be alarmed by the 3 flight walk up, the sardine can-like lift or the general state of the building - as the Australian Hostel is truly a gem! From the moment we arrived, we were made... More

clean rooms, solid wifi, great location, only slightly janky elevator. my only complaint was how often the staff smoked in common areas, but it's cairo so there's no avoiding that, really. would most definitely stay again.

I met Ahmed at the front... More

Perfect hostel if your looking for a relaxed atmosphere. You will meet social and helpful staff, live at a central location and sleep in good beds. The Hostel has clean rooms and a cosy hang-out area where you can chill and use Wi-Fi. Walking distance from Tahir square, the Egyptian museum, Nile River, Cafes and amazing night and day markets....
