its bad in egypt these days for travel. chaos, lawlessness, apathy towards tourists and dismal tourist numbers.

in all this despair if you are looking for a decent enough low budget place with ok, hygenic breakfast this is it. beware of the hostel guys trying to sell you their tours though. you can book them on your own through the web sites and save the hostel's commission. rely on them for the taxis though.

if you can do your own research its better not to involve them in your travel advises as they will pester you with advises and offers of their own tours. better do your own thing but independent travel in egypt is quite impossible these days.

beware of the air conditioning in some rooms though. it can be slow. overall an average place but good enough for cairo chaos of these days.

Room Tip: check the AC.

Small and cozy hostel on the second floor of a building in a big, crowded, central road. Fridge and kitchen avaible shared. Quite clean room. Very nice and kind staff, always ready to help you.
We came back there.

First up great location, clean place, good breakfast, nice people.

Couldn't fault it really. Got everything I needed, and expected. Helped with info, tours, tickets when required. Wi-Fi works and the tv is hooked up to enough channels that if you have time to watch TV you're not flicking through the classifieds.

Guys are always there to help, have a chat etc.

Would stay there again.

Miami Cairo is a clean, bright and 'friendly' hostel located right in the center of downtown Cairo. The room prices are very reasonable and the quality of the room and facilities was great compared to what we experienced for a similar price, or more, elsewhere in Egypt. Airport pickup was also excellent.
However, we found the service a little overbearing at times and the staff seemed to swing from genuinely friendly, to salesman friendly to downright disinterested. There is pressure to book tours at the hostel - the only tour we did with them, booked under pressure the night we arrived at the hostel, wasn't great. My recommendation to Miami Cairo would be to raise the prices on the rooms a little, and chill out on the overbearing 'friendliness' and trying to sell tours and transport. Also, when you pay a deposit on hostelbookers/hostelworld it is supposed to count towards the overall cost of your room (gave up on trying to explain this and just paid the extra).

Room Tip: Ensuite room is often double booked, or seems to be used by the staff, so if you book this online, y...

Quiet, Clean shared bathroom, Soft bed, with Air condition. Most importantly, the staff in this hostel provide you warm smiles and thoughtful help. Super friendly and helpful, feel like my brothers. I have a very very happy experience in this hostel and i would definitely recommend it to all my friends that would like to visit Egypt.
