An experienced traveler knows to be careful when traveling abroad. One must proceed with caution. The Nubian Hostel was a breath of fresh air. The rooms were exactly what you would expect from a hostel, the price was as advertised, but the reason that I LOVED it was because of all of the help that they provided. They helped me...

A nice hotel with free computer access and free wi-fi, sat tv. Ask for Waleed or Shareef - but all the staff are helpful. Close to Tahrir Square and down town/city centre.
