We spent just one night there but was greatly impressed how extremely helpful and funny the staff was. They tried to help way beyond, than we would normally expect (e.g. lend us money, when our credit card got blocked) and all this absolutely for no reward! Remarkable how staff can make a difference in an attitude  toward the place  -...

I'm not completely convinced that there's a taxi driver in Cairo who knows where the street that this hotel is on actually is, but after multiple stops to ask for directions they'll find it eventually. The sign is high up, and fairly small so you really have to look hard to find it too. The Meramees Hotel is on the...

Stayed here with two friends on a 5 day trip to Cairo and had a four bed room to ourselves. Could not have asked for more: convenience, cost, cleanliness, friendliness and general vibe. It's an excellent place to stay and if I'm back in Cairo, this will be my first port of call. You get breakfast (three rolls, spreadable cheese,...

One of the first things I was told here was "this is your home now, here is our business card, call us anytime from anywhere in Egypt and we will help you." It has a family feel, clean rooms and bathrooms, funny friendly staff and simple but good breakfast. Located in a great place minutes away from food, the museum,...

The staff and the location were the best part of the stay. The staff is helpful, friendly, and interactive. The location is right in downtown and within walking distance of so many things. The bathrooms were cleaned everyday, the beds and common areas were also kept nice and tidy. I have stayed in other hostels in Cairo and didn't meet...

I stayed for a week or so, enjoyed the views from the balcony and the vibes of Cairo City, also got the chance to chat with Mustafa and Magdy from the Staff, and they are very nice and friendly people who helped me get around and enjoy the trip after a rough start.

Been to that hostel based on hostelworld recommendations. It is nice and cozy, the shared bathrooms get properly cleaned frequently. It is near to metro and easy to get from there to anywhere. What I liked most was how helpful the staff was and they offer flexible arrangements that was very suitable for me. I was there to take an...

We stayed here at the end of our trip in Egypt and booked for three nights. On arrival at the hostel we were told they did not have a copy of our booking as we had only booked a few hours previously through hotels.com. We were asked what room we had booked and we told them a double room with...

Good location. Very comfortable sleep. Staff is very nice and extremely helpful. They will do their best to get you around Cairo the best they can and make sure you don't get taken advantage. But it's going to happen.

My husband and I stayed here and at the sister hostel Miami Cairo. The staff really make these places - friendly, relaxed and helpful. Communal areas and rooms are kept clean, breakfast was basic but fine and the beds were comfy. I would recommend that the hostels invest in new sheets and towels - meramees had better towels but we...
