Stayed here twice during my stay in Egypt, the staff was very helpful and booked us our 3 day Nile cruise, which was great. The hostel location is very good, close to many good restaurants and the Egypt museum. Very recommended.

The staff was absolutely amazing, especially Sara. The location, wifi, cleanliness and shower was great. I came for 3 nights but stayed for 9. All of the advice they gave me was top notch. The common area is great for solo travellers and people looking to make friends.

Just hold your breath and go up the stairs. Once you're in you'll be happy! Welcoming reception and rooms are clean and prices are good. Location is perfect and everything is clean... As any other hotels just mention it if you find something that is not clean and it will be certainly done, just saying instead of giving bad comments...

This hostel is really a great place to stay. The staff go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. It's easy to get around from the hostels location, it's walking distance to the Egyptian museum and a short taxi ride to the Islamic area (be careful with taxi drivers though as they will take you the loooong way round.)...

When I got in Freedom Hostel I couldn't imagine how nice it was just looking the building from the street. The staff is very polite and helpful. As soon as I got there Ahmad brought me a welcome tea. The room and bathroom in the private room I booked were very cozy and clean. The only thing I didn't like...
