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

Wow. Just wow. I’ve been backpacking around the world for the past 30 months and have stayed at over 100 hostels. So when I say this hostel has been the most hospitable of any I’ve stayed IN THE WORLD, I’m not kidding. The owner Sayid and all the staff, Tarek, Mohmood, and Mohmood all go out of their way to...

Nice place. Friendly warm people, good food, and they have a splendid rooftop. Good price - quality. From the hostel you are able to book several activities. I booked the hot air balloon, the boat on the Nile, and a tour through the valley of the kings. All good prices and a great experience. The staff members of the hostel... More

Great place to stay. The friendly staff make you feel at home, the breakfast fills you up for a few hours, the rooms are decent as are the other facilities, the rooftop gives a great view on the sunset and a relaxing place to hang out.

A sanctuary in the chaos of Luxor. Very helpful staff. Free tea on tap & use of computer & internet. Good price on trips. Good breakfast. Above all a place where you are made to feel at home, a rarity in hostels.

This place is in a very good location and the staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable about all the attractions. Sayid and Maria are the managers with Sayid a local and Maria originally from Belgium. The breakfast is great with eggs (omelette), fresh bread, cheese and condiments made when you're ready to eat. There is an unlimited supply of tea... More

Maria (the owner) and the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Maria was great for providing insight on the tourist sites and for organizing tours. Prices of tours seemed competitive. Other than my room's flooring having visible debris (e.g. toilet paper pieces) on it, the place was clean. If visiting this hostel (Hostel Bob Marley... More
