I found the Canadian hostel to be one of my top experiences in Cairo, Egypt. The place was great, very clean and tidy, plus a real legit feeling, safe, and the staff was GREAT! They were very kind and friendly to all of their travelers never hesitating to give advice about what to see and what to eat in Cairo,...

I am from Canada and when I was searching for place to stay in Cairo, the hostel name and flag made a connection right away. The Canadian Hostel is in heart of Cairo, steps away from Revolution Sq (Tahrir Sq) and world famous Egyptian Museum. Other than location, my room was very comfortable and the ever smiling staff was like...

I found the Canadian Hostel by chance. I was looking for a nice, cheap place in the middle of Cairo and here it is. Well, we don't talk about 5* or 4*, but when you main interest is to discover Cairo, then it is the right place. I left early in the morning and returned late at night. My bed...

I was brought to the Canadian Hostel by an Egyptian friend. The place is very central, and the people running it are kind and helpful. The price is good, it is quiet, and clean.

I came across this hostel through a friend in Cairo. I took the opportunity to visit the country shortly after the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak, a time not usually seen as auspicious for tourism. Fair disclosure: I was in the country as a working journalist. Amid the slump in the tourism industry as a result of the internal conflict,...

Clean, helpful, great location, and reasonable price, these are the standards for any backpacker. The Canadian Hostel and it's staff don't just meet these standards they exceed them. The rooms and bathrooms are exceptionally clean, the staff are very helpful and will give you the best advice for navigating Cairo. The location can't be beat, the museum is a 5...

“Rooms on the other half of the hostel (the one which is opposite to the reception desk) has a better bathroom :)”

“The rooms are so cheap as it is, choose one with air conditioning. My friend and I paid a little more and got our own room with 2 beds. We kept all our belongings there so we didn't have to cart around our stuff or worrying about other people in the same room. We would just lock the door whenever leaving.”
