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.

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
