Stayed here back in April 2010. After a 16hr coach journey from Sharm we were met with a very friendly greeting from the manager, he made us coffee, introduced Luxor then informed us that he was a tour guide (in training) and wanted us to pay him 400 EGP (per person) and he’d take us to all of the sites in Luxor. We told him that it felt a bit a bit steep and either way we’d rather wander around and get lost in Luxor at our own pace. This didn’t go down too well and we were given the cold shoulder from this point forward.
The accommodation was very basic but at this price you wouldn’t expect much more. No air con but all the rooms come with a slightly wobbly ceiling fan. Location is great, literally two to three mins from the station and about five to the Nile. Is quite tricky to find the place however, keep you eye out for a sign at the first floor level next to a fairly dark alley, can’t miss it...
Whilst we were in Luxor we nipped across the river to the valley of the kings, had a nose around Karnack temple and took a felucca trip along the Nile. Keep your eyes out for a felucca captain called Nubi (photo enclosed), he was hands down the friendliest and most honest Egyptian that we met on our two and a half week trip.
All in all, absolutely recommend this hostel to anyone heading over to Luxor who wants to pay less than three English pounds per night.
