This hostel is right in the middle of downtown Cairo and makes for an excellent station for exploring.
-Rooms are in good shape, they are relatively clean and on the second time staying here 'upgraded' us to a larger room with 4 beds when there were only 2 of us.
-The staff tried hard to accommodate, breakfast was just right and came with the room.
-If you paid 30 L.E, you got 3 bottles of water, a towel and wi-fi. The first two are great ideas, as bottle water is something one always needs when traveling in Egypt.
-The wi-fi was pretty bad, and it was 20 L.E a day, for communication starved tourists it felt like an add-on. Though the wi-fi improved slightly at the end, I would to have liked to know up front but it wasn't a deal breaker, more like wishful thinking.
