The hostel is very central. Walking distsmce to Egyptian museum and the Nile. Great night scenes around this area. When I stayed here, the plumbing wasnt2 working so they found us another place to stay (also a great location) and at no additional cost. Good staff

I arrived at the hostel super early after an exhausting journey, but I was still welcomed in and they gave me coffee and something to eat! After the first few days with my friends, I ended up needing to stay an extra week to sort out my visa for the next country I was travelling to. They were so accommodating...

Nice hostel, the best part of the stay was definitely the people working there, very nice guys and very friendly. The location is good, and the building has its charm (don't be intimidated by the abandoned first floors) once you get up to the fourth floor it all makes sense.

My trip has not even started but I'm already seeing some potential issues. They claim to speak fluent English but when I called to ask a question both the lady and gentlemen working said they didn't understand what I was talking about. They asked me to email in but provided no email address to which I can try to use....

Hola Cairo is a good option if you are traveling on a low budget. The place is cheap so you cannot expect a five-star location. The building is old but very well located in the heart of Cairo, close to many key attractions: walking distances to Tahir, Nile, the Egyptian Musseum etc... The staff is very friendly and helpful, they...

Overall the hostel is very nice. Rooms are nice and clean and the air conditioning is great. Breakfast was good and a bit different everyday. The only downsides would be that when we arrived at 3:00am instead of showing us to our room right away they were trying to sell us a tour which obviously was the last thing on...
