This place is super basic and a bit shabby (which is part of the charm), super clean, nice and comfortable. It's located in an old magnificent building in the centre of Cairo. Very close to very busy super fun streets to see how the real Cairo rolls in a day to day life and walking distance to the museum. Rooms... More

Well located, but somehow quiet at night (our room gave on the court), the hotel has a cosy, relaxed vibe. The rooms aren't new but they are very clean, the only thing that would deserve a change are the pillows, very hard, but I guess it is subjective, and we didn't think of asking them for softer pillows until after...

I couldn't fault anything about it! The rooms are clean and tidy and they really make you feel at home here. We organised a tour and our guide was fantastic!!! A must stay, we will definitely always return here when we are in Cairo. Thank you African House Hotel!!!

I "sleep" in this hostel In February for 1 night. Room was spacious, clean as it can be in this kind of hostels and region. I take room with shared bathroom, which was combination of toilette and shower without any protections of water from shower- very, very wet. The doors need to be lubricated.It was to loud creaking.

I stayed one night at this hostel and I can say the following: The location for those who want to discover Cairo is perfect, just 2 steps from Ramsis Sq. the heart of Cairo where you can go anywhere from there, so hint you are a person who can handle how busy, crowded, noisy and polluted is this area.

Two words....BED BUGS. I booked a few rooms here for 18 students including myself. While the staff were friendly and the place was beautiful (architecturally speaking), I wouldn't stay here again if you paid me. All of us woke up with bites both mornings except for those who had the sense to sleep on a towel on top of the... More

The price is decent at 15 EUR for a double with shower and the location is great in downtown. However, the place is dingy. Matresses are uncomfortable and very dirty. The paint is coming off the ceilings and walls and the private bathroom was very poor. Skip the breakfast. Budget doesn't have to be dirty and dingy. Upgrade the mattresses,... More
