i did not stay in other places in cairo but i felt very lucky with my choice of the freedom hostel, especially as i was in need of buddha time after running the athens marathon that day. the entrance and way up are not too promising but thats misleading. i was welcomed with tea and got a really nice big room. shower very nice and clean. as afterwards i couldnt move so much anymore i asked them if i could order something. they organised everything for me, very attentively listening to my wishes.
although the hostel is situated really close to the egyptian museum finding your way in cairo streetlife can be overwhelming, so i was glad that in the morning they helped me to get there. breakfast was included too.
thanks freedom hostel!
