The staff (especially Mido!) were just great to us; since we were only there for a weekend, we were struggling trying to figure out how to do everything we wanted to. But when we got to the hostel, Mido planned out the most perfect itinerary for us, which included amazing things that we didn't even know we wanted to see!!...

Mido was extremely helpful in arranging us the perfect tour for our short time in Cairo. During our tour we saw countless pyramids, took a camel ride around the pyramids of...

This hostel was my favorite by far. Right when we got there, Mido, helped us to figure out what we were going to do for the next day. He planned an amazing tour for us to do in our short time in Cairo. The tour was absolutely amazing and I've never felt safer in a place. Best staff in the...

Place was always nice and clean, the internet works well especially for being in Egypt, and...

Fantastic stay in this hostel. It is the perfect place to discover Cairo an the real and truth Egyptian people. The team is the best, you can trust in All of them: Hazem, Rasha, Aber, Ahmed, and the taxi driver Mussa that will give you to the pyramids. You won't regret to choose this place!

Had a great stay at Wake UP! Cairo Hostel. 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...
