If you are wanting very cheap accommodation and you're prepared to undergo the true backpacker experience, then this place will suit you well. Our room, the beds, the bathroom facility and the breakfast were all simply ok - that is, if you were ok about doing things cheaply. Our bathroom was a bit dusty when we arrived - the windows...

My wife and I arrived at the hotel based on the good reviews. We are budget travellers and we saw this hotel as a great alternative. We arranged for an airport pickup (a must when you arrive to Cairo airport at night) and the driver they sent was waiting for us outside the airport, which was not a good idea... More

I absolutely loved this hostel. The airport pickup was free as a special at the time of purchase and was waiting for me and waited for my friend as well. There were a bunch of tours we could arrange through the hostel, with or without a tour guide (without included a driver) and we booked all our traveling through the... More

I had an excellent stay there. The airport pickup person was waiting for me as promised, and I found the location to be good as far as being able to walk to the museum (about 20 minutes). The owner was very helpful in making arrangements for me and was not overbearing in any way as far as trying to sell... More

I stayed at this hostel for 17 nights and I couldn't be more satisfied. The hostel has everything you need, private bathroom, breakfast included in the price, central location, ...

The hostel is situated in the busy downtown area, on 5th Floor in an old building. The elevator is an antique! There are 5 rooms with attached bath. Since the building is old, you can clearly see repair work done to convert it into a budget hostel. The floor is uneven, I almost toppled twice. Room is clean & specious,... More

I have been staying at this hostel for a couple of nights now and while it's very clean, comfortable, and in a good location, the fact that the staff smokes so much and the disgusting smell comes into the rooms, I would probably not stay here again.
