We experienced Egypt history! The protestors under the balcony. But, We never felt insecure do.
The place is well maintain, quiet, clean with space.The staff is helpfull with the respect of going outside to smoke. The simple little breakfast help you to leave early for a visit when you need to. Most of what you need is at walking distance: restaurant, metro, busses and museum included.
The only downside is the never clean main entry downstair and the stair itself who belong to the building owner, not to the hostel. The things is that most of other places we visited in Cairo, 2..3 stars...+ have the same problem or worst.
