Location is central, an easy walk away from Tahrir Square, Talat Harb (lots of great bookstores in this area, plus a rather tucked-away artsy little movie theater and art gallery/reading room), and the Metro. Bedrooms and bathrooms were pretty clean and well-stocked - plus you get a towel - breakfast was...

This is a great hostel to use as a base for exploring Cairo or just hanging out and taking it easy. The rooms are clean, towels are provided, and the showers have hot water. You can literally see the bus station (for long distance travel, travel within Cairo, and to/from the airport) from the hostel, and Tehrir Square and the...

Hazem was the receptionist during our stay and he was incredibly helpful. He was awake at odd hours to take our calls and to check us in after...

The hostel sent a driver pick me up from the airport late at night and my room was ready when I arrived. Travelers from all over the world stay here (at least one staff member speaks Japanese),...
