Wake up! Is the best hostel i have stayed in throughout my travels. The staff is friendly and helpful that like to help your stay be as comfortable and enjoyable as can be. Another great thing is that it is very clean which makes it even more comfortable. Cairo is a wonderful city and staying here makes it that much better. Trip of a lifetime :)

The Wake Up Cairo Hostel team was exceptional! They've done a great job of creating a fun, friendly and almost family-like atmosphere - you really feel at home. Peter and the team helped us navigate our way around Cairo and other places in Egypt with ease. Thank you so much for faciliting our time in Egypt - we will never forget the fun we had!!

Room Tip: My room had a nice view of the citadel , it seems far but it's good view specially in the daytim...

Just returned (Jan'12) from 2 weeks in Cairo & Luxor. "Wake Up" Hostel excellent value for price, location, cleanliness & staff helpfulness. Cairo quite safe & restful. Problems in Luxor though: terrible "first class" overnight Cairo-Luxor train..filthy, rickety, unheated. Fly instead. Book while there, much cheaper.Luxor terribly commercialised, full of hustle-hassel. Make it a one day turnaround, or 1 night max.

It was a great stay! We love the place! Rooms were comfortable and clean! The hosts and owners made made our stay even more amazing. Not only thy helped plan out our trip within budgets, they also took us to great restaurants and awesome shisha (hookah) spots!! This place made our visit to Cairo even more amazing! It might seen sketchy from the outside of the building, but inside the hostel it was nice and cozy!

This hostel is one of my favourite hostels ever. It is very central with great links to public transport and amazing views over Cairo. But what really makes this hostel so good is the STAFF all of them were FANTASTIC with us. I would suggest using the airport pickup service they offer as the hostel may be a Iittle hard to find at first. When we arrived at the airport a driver and one of the hostel owners were there to meet us and take us safely to the hostel. WELL DONE GUYS !!!

Room Tip: Our twin room had great views over cairo
