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

Maria and Sayed are the best! When I arrived Maria gave me a total run down of everything I needed to know about getting around luxor like markets with fixed prices, good places to eat, where you catch mini busses and the best way to see the all the tombs and temples. She went so far as to break down... More

Wow... what utter rubbish. I was treated like a money machine. And they do it so well that you think you are being treated as family and taken under their wings. But while you think you are in good with the hotel getting cheap tours your actually getting charged more. And the staff spent most of the time bad mouthing... More

I am travelling overland from South Africa to Egypt and nowhere have I had such amazing service! Sayed and Maria are amazing hosts! They are genuine, have experience and knowledge of Luxor, and offer the best prices for accomodation and tours. I extended my stay and would have loved to stay longer! Thank you!

Maria, Said, Tarek, Shushu and the rest of the team - they just make this place special. They were doing everything to make us feel at home and help us get around Luxor without paying exaggerated tourist prices. Said even organized us a cheap hotel in Hurghada, our next stop. Plus they have the coolest cat on earth, Honey!

If you're in Luxor, this place is your best bet. The hosts were particularly interested in my safety and gave advice on how to stay out of trouble. They also arranged for me West bank tour and Hot Air balloon trip, both of them were good value for money. Maria, Saeed, Mahmoud and everyone here are nice people and know... More
