New Everest Hotel
Ranked #8 of 39 Specialty Lodging in Luxor
Reviewed August 5, 2010

Stayed here back in April 2010. After a 16hr coach journey from Sharm we were met with a very friendly greeting from the manager, he made us coffee, introduced Luxor then informed us that he was a tour guide (in training) and wanted us to pay him 400 EGP (per person) and he’d take us to all of the sites in Luxor. We told him that it felt a bit a bit steep and either way we’d rather wander around and get lost in Luxor at our own pace. This didn’t go down too well and we were given the cold shoulder from this point forward.

The accommodation was very basic but at this price you wouldn’t expect much more. No air con but all the rooms come with a slightly wobbly ceiling fan. Location is great, literally two to three mins from the station and about five to the Nile. Is quite tricky to find the place however, keep you eye out for a sign at the first floor level next to a fairly dark alley, can’t miss it...

Whilst we were in Luxor we nipped across the river to the valley of the kings, had a nose around Karnack temple and took a felucca trip along the Nile. Keep your eyes out for a felucca captain called Nubi (photo enclosed), he was hands down the friendliest and most honest Egyptian that we met on our two and a half week trip.

All in all, absolutely recommend this hostel to anyone heading over to Luxor who wants to pay less than three English pounds per night.

Met at the Train Station and walked to hostel, which is only a 10 minute walk but thats where the good points end. Located down some dirty & dusty back alley, which you probably never be able to find on you own. A/C requested on booking but only fan. Room basic but looked clean. Then the hard sell for trips came. Relentless in trying to sell trips including balloon rides and didn't seem to take to hint that I wasn't interested. He requested my Hostel World booking paperwork, which no other hostel wanted and then insisted I pay for 6 nights up front. No way I was going to pay in advance after only being there for less than 15 minutes. Didn't seem to understand that it's usual to pay on leaving. More insistance for my money, at which point I collected my bags and left. Avoid, much better places to stay (except Luxor Hotel).

The character of the hostel was awesome, the rooftop was amazing. The staff was very friendly and helpful. HOWEVER, please be careful when booking excursions through them. They were able to book us pretty much any event we wanted, but it was much cheaper to find a taxi driver on the street to take us to the valley of the kings, or to drive us to Hurghada. We booked a hot air balloon ride at sunrise through the hotel, then they were very late picking us up so we missed it. AND we learned that they were charging each hotel guest a different amount for the ride...so bargain bargain bargain. Also, the beds were pretty uncomfortable, but you can't beat the price.

This is a surprisingly clean, probably the cleanest place over Luxor. Very warn atmospere, beautiful oriental roof, extremely kind, clever and charming chief manager - Gaber - with perfect knowledge of English. And don't forget to ask about arranging the trips to the West Bank - they know how do it exactly in your manner!
