The place is well located in the heart of Cairo. It is lead by Ahmed and his colleagues/employees who are all very friendly and helpful. To get there from the airport you better take a taxi (about 120 EGP) or arrange transportation with Ahmed before. Bus stops not very close to the property, about 30 min walk (information from Ahmed)....

This place is super basic and a bit shabby (which is part of the charm), super clean, nice and comfortable. It's located in an old magnificent building in the centre of Cairo. Very close to very busy super fun streets to see how the real Cairo rolls in a day to day life and walking distance to the museum. Rooms...

Well located, but somehow quiet at night (our room gave on the court), the hotel has a cosy, relaxed vibe. The rooms aren't new but they are very clean, the only thing that would deserve a change are the pillows, very hard, but I guess it is subjective, and we didn't think of asking them for softer pillows until after...

I "sleep" in this hostel In February for 1 night. Room was spacious, clean as it can be in this kind of hostels and region. I take room with shared bathroom, which was combination of toilette and shower without any protections of water from shower- very, very wet. The doors need to be lubricated.It was to loud creaking. The best...

I stayed one night at this hostel and I can say the following: The location for those who want to discover Cairo is perfect, just 2 steps from Ramsis Sq. the heart of Cairo where you can go anywhere from there, so hint you are a person who can handle how busy, crowded, noisy and polluted is this area.

Two words....BED BUGS. I booked a few rooms here for 18 students including myself. While the staff were friendly and the place was beautiful (architecturally speaking), I wouldn't stay here again if you paid me. All of us woke up with bites both mornings except for those who had the sense to sleep on a towel on top of the...
