The room was nice and the air con worked well. The staff was nice and helpful. It was within walking distance of the Egyptian Museum, as well as good options for eating (including Pizza Hut, KFC, McDonalds if you need a break from local food). We went tho Saqqaura, Dashur, and Giza on a tour with them. Originally in email... More

I stayed here for 4 nights with a 3 day Nile cruise in the middle. Fairly closely located to all the things you want to see in downtown Cairo,(walking distance) and the rooms are typical hostels dorms/privates. The rooms/bathrooms are clean, and there was always a steady supply of coffee/tea. Staff are very helpful for arranging tours and transport. I... More

Freedom Hostel is wonderful place to stay. Per your request they can have a driver pick you up from bus or airport, which I highly recommend doing because Cairo is MASSIVE and the streets are all in Arabic and the taxi drivers will try and charge you an astronomical fee. It was only $15 Egyptian lbs for aiport pickup. At... More

The hostel is clean and very centrally located, but the staff really makes the hostel! They were extremely helpful in planning all our day trips and helping us figure out where/how to do things. All of the drivers and tours booked through the hostel worked smoothly and the staff put forth a lot of effort to make sure everything was... More

On the top floor of an old building in the middle of the downtown area, this backpackers is the place to meet fellow travellers. Comfortable dorm rooms, clean bathrooms, decent wifi and free breakfasts. All the staff are really friendly and have plenty of knowledge on what to do in and around the city. I met another traveller here and... More

This is the best hostel I found in Egypt on a 3 week trip, and the only one I feel compelled to review. I felt at home straight away with the helpful and friendly staff, and the relaxed lounge atmosphere where you can easily meet other backpackers. Beds are comfortable and rooms are quiet too. You can basically sort your... More
