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

I stayed at Freedom twice in the past month. Pretty much everything has been said, but they are super fantastic. Heidi, Peter, everyone - such great people and someone is there 24/7 to answer any questions. They'll order you take out or help you find a place on your own. Try out Koushary tahrir, abu tarek, el abd for pastries,... More

I'm a solo traveler, 29yrs, female, from the USA. I'll share my experience at Freedom and drop some tips for navigating your way through Cairo. I'd recommend taking public transport from the airport into the city. I know a lot of people say get a taxi or pay for a private car, but if you don't give a hoot about... More
