I believe most people will enjoy their stay here. The hostel is located up on the top floor of an old building in Cairo. After struggling up the stairs with your bag, you walk in and notice how clean it is compared to life outside.
It is well located close to attractions like the Egyptian museum(10-15 minute walk) and close to some reasonable eating spots. The staff try very hard to make your stay as pleasant as possible and can arrange all manner of tours,transportation and give you good advice.
I booked the room with an ensuite, it was comfortable with only minor shortcomings. The wifi( which you have to pay extra for), range just didn't quite extend to the room most of the time. Lots of drop outs, yet it was quite good near reception. Come on guys, all the place needs is a decent router. In most other hostels the wifi is also free.....it is 2013 guys. The air con worked fine, the sheets....well they were ok except they didn't have a sheet that quite fitted the bed, so 2 single sheets were used. The bathroom was excellent, although the room was not cleaned during my time there. Something about the maid quitting when I asked, and no one available to do it. Breakfast was very basic but ok.
Look the place has real potential and I think most people will enjoy their stay here. The staff are friendly and great.....it's just a few minor things that have to come together to turn this place's rating from good to great.
