My friend and I decided to go to Egypt last minute. Upon arrival at Freedom hostel, the receptionists presented excellent advice about where to find food and places to visit. It is such a friendly atmosphere and the live oud playing is lovely too.

Beautiful little boutique hostel. Staff were lovely, even bought us tea in the evening. They were informative and polite. Clean and fresh rooms/facilties. Good wifi. Computers and laundry available which was a bonus. Unfortunately on the top floor but worth the climb. Convenient location.

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.
