Freedom Hostel is wonderful place to stay. Per your request they can have a driver pick you up from bus or airport, which I highly recommend doing because Cairo is MASSIVE and the streets are all in Arabic and the taxi drivers will try and charge you an astronomical fee. It was only $15 Egyptian lbs for aiport pickup. At...

The hostel is clean and very centrally located, but the staff really makes the hostel! They were extremely helpful in planning all our day trips and helping us figure out where/how to do things. All of the drivers and tours booked through the hostel worked smoothly and the staff put forth a lot of effort to make sure everything was...

This is the best hostel I found in Egypt on a 3 week trip, and the only one I feel compelled to review. I felt at home straight away with the helpful and friendly staff, and the relaxed lounge atmosphere where you can easily meet other backpackers. Beds are comfortable and rooms are quiet too. You can basically sort your...
