I went to Cairo by the beginning of July 09. I made my reservations in Wake Up Cairo as I saw they got good reviews.
The staff is very nice and helpfull and always making jokes, although they always try to sell you very expensive tours... (but this is the same everywhere I think)
The Hotel is very clean with 2 batrooms with hot water. A nice breakfast is included in the price. WiFi is not very expensive also.
The location is very good also, very close to the museum, downtown, subway, etc.
The cons: I asked to stay there 4 nights.. but the 2nd night I was asked to leave the hotel as they were full!!!
The problem was that their reservation "system" is a piece of paper, and when I called they misunderstood me and wrote only 2 nights... (I think the problem was that I was not staying the complete weekend)
They helped me finding another hostel.. but the "damage" was done.
I was not the only one having problems as I saw 2 guys being rejected even though they had their reservations.
Also, check your bill at the end of your stay.. they like to make round numbers.. always up!
Anyway, is a nice hostel and I can recommend it
