The management of the hostel was only recently taken over by the Belgian national Maria and her husband. They run an organised hostel that provides the necessary amenities in a comfortable setting. For the price of a room, there is little else available in Luxor that can compare. However, the best part of this hostel is definitely the hospitality and knowledge of Maria. She has organised a well functioning hostel and provides a wealth of knowledge and guidance on Luxor and its surrounds because it is her passion. I would recommend this hostel just for the pleasure of meeting Maria.
