I "sleep" in this hostel In February for 1 night. Room was spacious, clean as it can be in this kind of hostels and region. I take room with shared bathroom, which was combination of toilette and shower without any protections of water from shower- very, very wet. The doors need to be lubricated.It was to loud creaking. The best... More

The place was a dump. There were tons of mosquitos in the place and my wife and I got bit up. Also they scam. After I stayed a few nights they offered to give me a free room. So I said fine. When I came to check back in they insisted that they sign into hostels.com to make it so... More

I stayed one night at this hostel and I can say the following: The location for those who want to discover Cairo is perfect, just 2 steps from Ramsis Sq. the heart of Cairo where you can go anywhere from there, so hint you are a person who can handle how busy, crowded, noisy and polluted is this area.

Two words....BED BUGS. I booked a few rooms here for 18 students including myself. While the staff were friendly and the place was beautiful (architecturally speaking), I wouldn't stay here again if you paid me. All of us woke up with bites both mornings except for those who had the sense to sleep on a towel on top of the... More

The price is decent at 15 EUR for a double with shower and the location is great in downtown. However, the place is dingy. Matresses are uncomfortable and very dirty. The paint is coming off the ceilings and walls and the private bathroom was very poor. Skip the breakfast. Budget doesn't have to be dirty and dingy. Upgrade the mattresses,... More

If you need something for a night or two this is the place. This hostel is situated really in the hear of Cairo close to Tahrir Square and Ramses. The price is very good between 10 to 20 usd per night. The rooms are big, but of course you don't expect to find more than average condition for a hostel.... More
