Mesho and his colleagues are very friendly and love conversing and getting to know thier guestes every chance they get. Great place for young adventurous travelers wanting to experience the true character that is the heart of Cairo. You stay 3 floors up off the ground in a once beautiful 300 year old building with lovely balconies. Do not let the entry way, elevator or staircase deter you from this very nice and well kept hostel. Mesho will set you up with an excellent driver and plan out everything you want to do from Alexandria all the way down to Abu Simel In a complete package at a decent flat rate(includes driver, guides,entrance fees to places, and trains or planes if needed). You learn to trust your driver and guides with your life becuase you are thier well being as well, meaning if they leave you unsatisfied Mesho will no longer contact them for work. The drivers and guides keep you from getting ripped off and hustled by the small percentage of Indecent people in Egypt. I enjoyed my stay very much.
Side Notes: Don't let the Media Intimidate you, I traveled to egypt by myself and I felt very safe, Egyptians are very friendly and love Americans.
Ladies: don't wear shorts or tank tops in Egypt unless you want to get absolutley Gawked at more than you already will.
