Jimmy, Mohammad, Medhat and all of the other staff at the Canadian Hostel were absolutely impeccable. They not only gave us a great night in Cairo, but effectively made the rest of our trip to Egypt. They offered service which gave us other hotels in Aswan and Luxor, they gave us tour guides, transportation, and even bought our train tickets... More

After experiencing lots of disasters, I finally found that Canadian Hostel is the best hostels in Cairo. The staff are friendly, the rooms are clean, the price is acceptable, and the most important thing is that there are hot water! To those who don't speak Arabic, in Canadian Hostel, you can communicate with the staff without any problem.

The location is perfect, near Egyptian Museum and the metro, convenient to reach other sights and easy to grab simple and delicious Egyptian food around. The staff are friendly and full of energy. They are willing to answer any question and speak good English. I've stayed in three hostels in Cairo and this is the best one with reasonable prices.... More

Excellent value for money. Very central location in Downtown Cairo,2 minutes to the Egyptian Museum, Midam Tahrir and the metro station. Although the building looks a bit old but it's french designed. They have a door man 24 hours, that makes me feel safe. The common spaces and the rooms are very clean and spacious. Choose room number 115, it... More
