“They rock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Small, simple and clean hotel, the staff is extremely friendly and the hotel very well located. On top of this, the hotel proposes some good excursions to the main sites at a fair price (which is rare !).

Stayed here for 6 days in March 2013. Amazing Hostel! Such good value. Clean and comfortable rooms, great info on different tours available, really good location and super close to the train station. The rooftop lounge are is perfect to just hang out.
The best part is definitely the staff though! They were super helpful and so friendly.
Would recommend to absolutely anyone to stay here.

We stayed for a few days to visit the sites in Luxor and had a lovely time! The rooms were clean and cozy, the staff was very friendly (Amar and Mohamed) and we met a few other travel who had fun stories to share!

The best part is definitely the rooftop lounge area. After a long day of sight seeing, the space is so nice to be in- music, plugs for phones/computers, lots of sitting space. Very nice and comfortable!

Very good deal!!! including tips, under 500 Egyptian pounds for 3 people, 3 days & 2 nights. Which is less than $100 USD

Boomerang is a simply amazing hostel. Spotless rooms, lovely breakfast, great tours, proper Wifi and a great chill out area on the roof. I booked for 3 days originally but ended up staying for 7 . I would recommend this hostel to anybody. Top quality service at very low prices. This is without a doubt the standard that all hostels should aspire to.

We stayed one night before our Nile cruise, but went back several times to hang out, use internet, and book a tour. Ten minute walk to Luxor Temple and souk, and docks. Three minute walk to train station. Location is great, in the neighborhood. How refreshing to walk through the street and see locals going about their lives--no hawkers in sight!

Mohammed and Omar are wonderful hosts, the room was spotless, the rooftop is a serene place to hang out. Breakfast is good (15LE) and internet is cheap (5LE/hr). Shower floors are slippery, and there are no shower curtains, so put your belongings in a plastic bag to keep dry.

It is easy to find a good place anywhere but it's very hard to find another home, and there in the dust and the stress of this crazy town called luxor we find one! they welcome us, they make us feel like home, they became our guide and they became our friends. We have been in five stars hotel in sharm el sheik and hurugadha and it was never as clean as the boomerang hotel...i mean it's clean, it's impeccable, it's chip, there is a nice breakfeast served by a very hard working gentlemen, there are rooms with tv and AC,rooms with two bed and even a sleeping,a super good vibration roof (thanks to moustafa), plenty of excursions with visible price and the last but not least the best people in town (thanks to Mohamed ((the Big Boss))who gave us great advices and who took always some time to share and be with us) oh and i almost forget the cherry on top is "Super Buddha" the private taximen of the hotel, who will take you anywhere with is everlasting good humeur. et voila! the picture of the most peacefull hotel i have ever experienced. just try it!
