THE WORST HOSTEL EVER AND I HAVE COME THROUGH A LOT! The room walls were eaten up by humidity...the bed linens were dirty...toilets was not working...No Internet...No cupboard to hang your clothes in...No Electric plugs to charge your phone...careless receptionist and all that for L.E 200 (double room) Just couldn't spend the night...I don't recommend it at all!!

My mattress was probably purchased before WWI! I do NOT think, they even spray mattresses for the bedbugs! They PUSH their tours on you! Both owner, Atef,...

The Hostel is in a great location in downtown Cairo, and the staff are very friendly and welcoming.

We found cockroaches in the en-suite bathroom and the room...

Received an emailed quote from Regent but when son stayed there, was virtually held to ransom for 4 times the amount quoted(for 2 nights in private ensuite room, airport transfers, breakfast & lunches and 2 hr Nile dinner cruise - which he didn't take) and was afraid to argue, fearing arrest in a foreign country.
