We stayed there just for 1 night. But their service is excellent. Their package tours were nice and cheap. All the staff are helpful and money minded. Infact i offered a tip to a staff, but he politely refused. Their 10 EGP breakfast is very tasty and plenty.
I got surprised how they could able to do this for cheap. Anyway congrts for their service and im always grateful for their service..Thanks boomerang...

Everything about this hotel was perfect. Great location near a train and bus station. The room was clean and affordable. Staff members are very friendly and helpful, and the tours they arrange to see the west bank temples and tombs are reliable and cheap. On rooftop there is a cozy hangout area where you can relax after a hot day in Luxor, of course, with a refreshing Stella beer!

Room Tip: There is another hotel named Bob Marley hotel, so do not get them mixed up! This is Bob Marley Boom...

Luxor is a beautiful city rich in history. It also wins my award for most amount of people hassling you for money out of any country I have visited on this planet. This is where Boomerang becomes your oasis. The staff is amazing - they know the right people and are a great resource for thriving in this city. The room was exactly what we were looking for in budget accommodation: hot water showers, cool air conditioning, comfy bed, and awesome people to mingle with on the rooftop terrace. Amr went out of his way to make sure we had all that we needed and gave us pro tips for navigating the tourist traps. We would definitely return here in the future!

We stayed here for 3 nights. The staff were really friendly and helpful and gave good advice. Our room was clean and comfortable, with a choice of fan or air conditioning. Boomerang is situated on a quiet street, just a few minutes walk to Luxor Temple and the shops.

Very cheap.
Amazing tours at a great price. I went on 3 tours with the hotel and each one i checked the price at tourist information, online and other hotels.
I went with my partner and what we paid here for a week is only perhaps 2 days in Europe. Not only that I believe that this was the most honest and friendly place i had ever been too.
I thank the staff and everyone at the hotel for what they did for us. An entire honeymoon type experience for a fraction of my previous honeymoon cost.
The hotel was clean... no that is really an understatment.
The communal areas were constantly getting cleaned and our suite was cleaned daily.
The owners have 2 small children, you wouldnt even know they were there. And the manners on the young man at 3 simply adorable.

Again thank you for the great hospitality

Room Tip: pay the little more for the suite.. it is worth the extra cost for the giant room!!!

The best stay in Egypt!! Wow thank you so much we really appreciate it.
And very happy to know that you liked the children.

Our tours are the best price around as you have made clear and we are sure of that. Should someone be offering cheaper there is a catch.. so be very careful

again thank you for the review

I had a blast at the hostel; it's clean, cheap and most importantly the staff is very friendly & prepared. I did 2 tours with them with the local attractions and was not let down. Definitely recommended !
