We were a group from Austria and spent a great time at the Sara Inn Hostel in September 2014. I can highly recommend this hostel, for it is extremely centrally located in Downtown Cairo (like 5 minutes away from the Tahrir Square). Apart from that, the staff is really nice - they were happy to help us with every problem... More

I stayed in Sara Inn for two weeks in October 2014. I highly recommend it to others. I was sad to leave as it became a home away from home. the staff are more than happy to help and advise you in your trips all over Egypt. they arranged trips for me to Aswan, Luxor, Fayom Oasis and Alexandria.

The owner and staaf is very helpful and kind. Good location - near Tahrir square but not too close for hearing noise from the streets. Quiet and safe place to stay (with comfortable beds :) ) I will definitely come back and stay here.

I have stayed at this place before, and although it's not the flashest place in Cairo, it's so friendly and homey that I was happy to stay there again, having tried alternatives in Cairo.It's a bit run down now but the rooms are very clean and comfortable, the staff are friendly, and the location, in the heart of downtown is...

The hotel is very central, close to tahir but far enough for being safe. One day there was a riot with 3 people being killed, we didnt have any problems at the hotel's location. People were friendly but only very helpfull in selling their own trips. we asked if they could call a hostel at Luxor for us, they only... More

Hostel is conveniently located near Midan Tahrir (main square) meaning that it is easy to take metro to any direction and Egyptian museum is just few steps away. However, the rooms are quite old, without any charm and shared bathroom is really really basic and small. Breakfast is below average (and average is not high either in Egypt) and there... More

The staff couldn't have been more helpful and nicer - our room was ready when we arrived even though it was 7:00 am, they organised a really good value trip to the pyramids with a knowledgeable driver, and they even gave us a discount because of our name! The room was better than expected considering the price, comfortable, with air... More
