Cheap place to stay, includes breakfast and depending on which bundle you choose you can have free airport pickup or a free trip to & from Pyramids of Giza. We had a lovely driver who gave us a history lesson and had a personalized sign waiting for us. Elevator works. Although we did experience a blackout which meant 10 flights...

It's Ramadan and high 90's in temperature so the air conditioning was appreciated. The breakfast includes an hard boiled egg and the elevator worked to get to the seventh floor. You can see the Egyptian Museum and the Nile River from this level. The night manager and guests would talk past bedtime if you were a light sleeper next to...

At the time of writing this review I am still staying in WUC. Today is my 21st day of stay at this hostel. The location of this hostel is just perfect with Talaat Harb st, Tahrir Sq and the Nile within walking distance. Although the building where the hostel is housed doesn't look that pretty, the inside of the hostel...

This place is right in the heart of Cairo. Right near the museum. Within walking distance of the Nile. The main area has great views. I will say, the building looks like hell, the lobby of the building looks even worse, and the elevator is one of the worst I have been in. But, once inside one of the two...

I loved staying at Wake Up! Cairo. Before going, we read some of the reviews about poor service but we didn't experience anything like that at all. Upon arrival, we received tea and grapes. Then, my friend and I were actually shocked at how clean the rooms were especially because the state of the rest of the building outside of...

Clean rooms, helpful staff available 24/7 (especially the driver, Mohamed), hot showers, great views and a good location in central Cairo. That last one is the only problem, really: Cairo is a filthy, ugly city, and the hostel can't get away from that (however clean it is inside). The tower it is located in is dirty and dilapidated, and the...

What can I say - a home away from home. A safe and comfortable refuge after a long day exploring Cairo. 1. The staff are super helpful, friendly and always there. Don't underestimate the importance of this. 2. The showers are awesome - great if you've just come from bushcamping in the desert. 3. Bathrooms cleaned several times daily and...
