Booked this place due to the high rate on TA. Turns out it's a total mistake. People is nice and helpful but the room are terrible I have to say. The carpet on floor looks like uncleaned for years. The Room and the toilet are just look like you don't want to step in and use it. I know the... More

The staff manages to do what no other hotel can - they make you feel part of the family and that is a rare thing to accomplish . The help they offer and advice is most valuable as it is made with the traveller's safety,comfort and budget in mind .Their business ethics are unshakable and that is something I really... More

This place is at the end of a pretty dirty back-alley, but as soon as you arrive the place has a nice welcoming atmosphere. We arrived in Luxor on the overnight sleeper train from Cairo and Sayed picked us up from the train station which was great. We were very thankful that we were able to check into our rooms... More

I didn't get a chance to stay in this hotel because I ended up staying in another one that was more convenient for me, but I just wanted to give a shout out to the staff here who was extremely friendly to me over the phone when it came to answering my questions. I feel bad about not staying with... More

This is the original Bob Marley Hostel (not the copy-cat peace hostel down the street). I've travelled throughout the middle east and europe, and this has got to be one of the most hospitable hostels I've stayed at. Upon booking, the owner contacted me so that he could meet me at the train station (free of charge). After arriving at... More

They try to get more money out of you for internet which was supposedly included before, and nickle and dime you to death with other things as well. Nice rooms though :). The rooftop patio is awesome! The hotel is completely Bob Marley themed. Safer hostel than the others I looked at for the same price.

Great place and price. The people were so nice. They helped us with the prices in the market, with the food, tours, everything. Always caring and worried if we were having a good time, and to learn from the cultures of everyone visiting. They treated us like FAMILY.

We 2 friends stayed there for 2 days. We found the room clean and got all necessary items as soon as we reached. The stuffs were very well behaved. I can say, I would like to stay many more times if I go in Luxor in future.

Stayed here for 3 days. It is cheap though it could do with a bit of cleaning. The breakfast is amazing and you can get all the information and tours from here. I took a tour on one day and a bicycle on the other days.

Stayed here for 3 nights. We arrived at 7am and after inviting us to a drink, they let us check in, which was fantastic because we had been traveling non-stop for 30 hours. I asked for an exterior non smoking room and the room was perfect, we had a balcony, a working a/c and a fan. The hostel needs to... More
