We stayed at this hostel for three nights the facilities we pretty good did have problems with the shower in our room going boiling hot to cold. The location is pretty good walking distance to the metro and about 5 to 10 minutes walk from the egyptian museum. The breakfast is just bread with jam and cream cheese. The staff... More

I went to the hotel from Alex, and so wasn't offered the free airport pickup. The hotel has no signs. The lift seems really dangerous too. The aircon stopped working in the room I stayed in during the night. But it was quiet, there wasn't much noise from the outside coming in. The bathroom was full of creepy-crawlies. The staff...

Hola Hostel is located on the 4th floor of a once grand, early 20th century apartment building that like much of the downtown area has long since lost its grandeur. The building’s communal entry was shabby and hard to discover for a first time visitor so take up the free pickup offer. While a central lift from the 1920s, making... More

Hola Cairo is the same management as the Brothers Hostel and another hostel that I forgot the name. Hola is one of the clean hostels that I’ve stayed in Cairo. Shared toilets/shower cubicles are spic n’ span, there’s a balcony overlooking the interior of the building making you watch daily activities of locals down below. Connection to the wifi internet...

Stayed in the hostel for almost 2 weeks now. Very nice place to stay! Close to a big shopping street and to a bunch of western cafe's in Al Zamalek (just over the bidge). Staff is really friendly - so they helped me with finding the Iran embassy by writing me the address in Arabic and English, without any request.... More

great place to stay. We stayed two nights and they were perfectly willing to book affordable travel options to Giza, Luxor and anywhere else we wanted to go. Never felt like we were being hustled. We utilized a trip to Giza and our driver spoke very good English, giving us details we would not have received otherwise, and he was... More
