We had a wonderful 3 days at the Bob Marley House Hostel. Note: we had just come from a really bad experience at a hostel in Cairo, so it was even better to come here. Everyone was very friendly, and this hostel offered well priced tours without pushing them on us. I was sick one day, and they gave me... More

Maria and her husband and the rest of the staff go above and beyond for her customers! I highly recommend staying here. The knew the highlights tourists want to see, and arrange all the details/logistics of getting around so you can enjoy your vacation. We honestly would have missed our train stop and would have gone to Aswan if Maria's... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. Maria and Sayed were extremely helpful. Sayed grabbed us from the train station and in fact pulled us off the train because we were in a daze from a sleepless overnight train were minutes away from the train departing for Aswan. Maria is extremely knowledgeable about the area and the hostel is... More

The staff of the hostel can help with everything, where to go en how, they organize tours cheaper than everywhere else, WITHOUT PRESSURE to join them. The rent bikes. The Belgium LADY Maria knows everything about tourist destinations, and.... everything. There is an abundant breakfast at the time you WANT IT, being 2 AMor 5 PM, never seen that before.... More

Great experience here, best and biggest breakfast I had in Egypt, amazing people who are willing to help you and make you feel comfortable for the duration of your stay, no hustling for tours (very important once you get here, believe me), thanks a lot to Sayid, Mahmoud and all the others for making us feel (almost) like home!

I found the staff in this hostel to be quite nice and the breakfast to be adequate but there was a real lack of cleanliness. The share bathroom was not cleaned for 4 days. There was water on the floor continually and the dirty toilet paper was not emptied from the bin until I informed the manager that something needed... More

The only place I stayed, and I would take it again. Great advice from interim employers, met great other guests as well. Ok, small room for 3 beds in the dorm, but that's not an issue for a dorm. A good range of day trips offered at the reception desk. Very cheap dorms as well.

I am so surprised from the many good reviews of this hotel. In actual fact I boomed this for us because of the many great reviews. We were a group of friends travelling together. I really should have booked another hotel from the lack of response to my emails. When we arrived our airport transfer was 200le. The airport itself... More
