“great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

I absolutely loved this hostel. The airport pickup was free as a special at the time of purchase and was waiting for me and waited for my friend as well. There were a bunch of tours we could arrange through the hostel, with or without a tour guide (without included a driver) and we booked all our traveling through the hostel with this, with reasonable prices and we had a fantastic tour guide (the other days we did without a tour guide, which was also great). The staff was very friendly and helpful in explaining where things were and recommendations for things to see around Cairo. The hostel was right in downtown and easy to get anywhere. The only feedback I have is to have a breakfast with more variety - it was bread and tea and toppings for the bread, which was still good. Also mosquito nets available for guests would be great, I got SO bitten up - not really the hostel's fault, that happens in Cairo no matter where you are. If I go back to Cairo I will definitely stay in this hostel again without doubt.

I had an excellent stay there. The airport pickup person was waiting for me as promised, and I found the location to be good as far as being able to walk to the museum (about 20 minutes). The owner was very helpful in making arrangements for me and was not overbearing in any way as far as trying to sell tourist related excursions. Very good value for the money.

I stayed at this hostel for 17 nights and I couldn't be more satisfied. The hostel has everything you need, private bathroom, breakfast included in the price, central location, ... But what makes this hostel really special is the people working there. I felt like home from the moment I arrived, thanks to hostel owner Haitham and his amazing staff. They really know how to make the guests happy and took great care of me during my entire stay, I would really recommend everyone who is looking for a hostel in Cairo to stay here!

The hostel is situated in the busy downtown area, on 5th Floor in an old building. The elevator is an antique! There are 5 rooms with attached bath. Since the building is old, you can clearly see repair work done to convert it into a budget hostel. The floor is uneven, I almost toppled twice. Room is clean & specious, the WC is gross. I found lots of stains here & there. The young guys managing the front desk are helpful & attentive. We checked in well past mid-night but never faced any problem. Simply put it's a basic budget hotel. Choose only if you are running on a shoe-string!

Room Tip: Before you check-in, please check the bathroom

I have been staying at this hostel for a couple of nights now and while it's very clean, comfortable, and in a good location, the fact that the staff smokes so much and the disgusting smell comes into the rooms, I would probably not stay here again. The free breakfast consists of bread and cheese/jam, and coffee. The bathroom is very clean and there seems to be unlimited super hot water for showers, which I have loved. Also the wifi in the room is good. Overall it's a nice place but if you're grossed out by cigarette smoke, stay somewhere else.
