I was overcharged by ten times the amount I was supposed to pay, and as I only noticed it after being out of the country I first contacted Hazem, the front desk guy who checked me in. His first excuses were that it was a holiday in Egypt and his mother was in a hospital but be would look it...

Man how can I start? I didn't even book thru any website. I booked with Mido via Facebook. Upon my arrival, they were there picking me up. Mido (stuff) saved my life as far as organizing my rides and tours. He even went to dinner with us just to show us how to get to the restaurant. You will get...

Worth the money. Staff are very kind and polite. location is great. It's near to many good restaurants. Egyptian museum is only 10 minutes by walk. It's also close to Nile river. Citadel is also not very far away. It's hardly 10 minutes by taxi

I stayed here in March 2017, and it was a very good experience. The staff are very helpful and will go out of their way to make you feel at home. It offers a good breakfast, very comfortable beds and a calm environment in the middle of bustling downtown Cairo. What else do you need?

Thank-you Wake Up Cairo, I had a great stay!! Shout out to Mido who helped plan and organise my stay and ensured I saw the amazing attractions of Cairo and Giza. Also thanks for organising my trips to and from airport, definitely eased the stress of finding a good taxi.

Thanks to Mido and Wake UP Cairo, we had an amazing stay in Egypt! The hostel was very nice (Mido upgraded our rooms for no extra charge) and we had our entire weekend planned out by Mido before we even got there. He arranged everything for us which made our weekend much more relaxed and fun. Everything that he planned...

This is an oustanding hostel, especially for the cost. You are right next to Tahrir Square and the Egyptian Museum in the heart of downtown and can get to anywhere in Cairo from bus depot or never ending line of taxis. The hostel in managed by a great staff. They were all friendly, helpful, and fun to chat with. The...
