Good response time from him too. I did a layover at Cairo to visit the pyramids. Airport transfer was arranged with the host as I do not want to haggle outside for... More

Positives: Breakfast was simple but delicious - falafel and fuul sandwiches Very helpful and friendly staff Good location, about a 10 minute walk to Tahrir Square, Egyptian Museum etc. Potential Negatives:...

On both my stays I've felt like I've been treated as a family member, not only a guest. The hostel is centrally located, great value, and clean. Whatever you're looking to see or... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Newly opened. Finally after looking for the best central point in Cairo for all travelers we found this strategic location to establish travelers house, the hostel is situated in the heart of downtown. Therefore we are so close to everywhere - 8 minutes walk to Egyptian museum, 2 minutes walk to subway (Nasser, Attaba and Orabi metro stations), 10 minutes walk to the main bus station (Turguman station), 11 minutes walk to the train station (Ramses station), 17 minutes walk to the oldest and most famous market (Khan el-Khalili bazaar), 30 minutes drive from Cairo International airport. Located around the hostel collection of Egyptian and international banks, restaurants and coffee shops (24 hours service)..Travelers House has large rooms with high ceilings and high quality furniture and equipped with air-conditioning which make your stay pleasant and comfortable. The fresh towels and the linen are available 24 hours for free, 24 hour hot water in the private bathrooms inside the rooms and the shared bathrooms. ... more   less
