Location is very good in a highly secure quite area. also couple of steps away of the Nile.We had no breakfast during our stay as the one responsible for breakfast always comes very late after 9 AM. Also the hostel furniture is no longer as new as the pictures. everything is outdated.

Really enjoyed our stay after moving from a very bad hostel. Noha and Mohamed were great, Noha in particular is really nice and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms were bright and airy with lovely clean comfortable beds, nice wet room with a shower that had plenty of water pressure. There was a balcony, with exterior clothes line to... More

Minuses and pluses...Booking promises were not met. We arrived to be told that the manager had not reserved a room and therefore we lost our anticipated nice room with balcony. No refund. Then offered a room where the a/c was clearly broken and needing repair and other open wiring around the room. I was not happy. Although newly married, my... More

On top of this we were given spacious room for quite suitable price. The manager of the hotel was trying to be helpful, but very... More

I really wanted to like this place. The location is excellent, in a quiet back street in the charming Garden City area, walking distance to the Egyptian Museum. The staff were friendly and seemed keen on listening and making the place work. The rooms are smallish, simple and comfortable. Sounds good right? Well yes, except that our room was so... More

Approximately two months in business according to the owners. The location is great a few blocks from the Nile in the Garden District and about 10-15 minutes’ walk to the Museum. Rooms are clean, simply appointed and décor is nice with base essentials. Our Double room had a queen-sized bed and quality mattress with soft Egyptian cotton sheets. The room... More
