“The best staff ever !!”
Reviewed February 15, 2012

ALL the staff are by far the friendliest and most welcoming and helpful staff I have had at a hostel. They make you like family from the start. You can ask for just about anything and they will organize it for you. Offered free transport to pyramids or airport transfer which is so helpful. (We even got an airport transfer at 4am). Not only that but the staff are so fun to hang out with. They took us to Egyptian cafe's etc and hung out with us there too. I can't describe how great of an experience this hostel made Cairo. If you don't stay here you are crazy.

Room Tip: Room 302 was lovely and with big balcony with nice view in downtown , i loved it !!

i was in cairo recently and found my way by chance to this hostel and was very pleasantly surprised. it is located on the top floor of a historic building and when entering the space was a complete shock. i was expecting a normal hostel but the inside had polished marble floors, funky decor and an inviting waiting room filled with nice people. the owners and the staff were all beyond helpful offering advice, directions and assistance in any trip planning you want to do, either walking around town and taking the metro to a complete travel package at good rates.
i found the place to be spotless with nice beds, clean bathrooms and a good breakfast, will go back to see them again.

I have been to Cairo a few times and stayed in a few different hostels. This one is by far, the best. Really great atmosphere, super clean, staff that were amazing. Usually I find getting around a little hectic there but these folks organized everything for me. Location is perfect because you can walk to lots of cool things (Museum - was like a 5 min walk, Nile, shopping, restaurants, bus and train stations). Place was clean and really cool. I felt like I was in a funky haven away from it all yet you can get everywhere just outside. Cairo is a hectic place and was glad to find a place to chill out and not worry about details (which is the hardest thing I find about other countries). I do recommend it.

Room Tip: I only saw two of the rooms but they all seemed very clean and designed in a great way. Place is pre...

Excellent location near the metro! more than convenient room prices, laid back environment and great interior decoration, clean and comfy both rooms and facilities, variety of tours+information and transport services, funny and energetic people. They also organized my 10 days itinerary, found the best room according to my budget and provided all the information I needed to squeeze Cairo and its surroundings. Definitely the best option I could have taken in my Egypt experience.
