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...

I stayed at Freedom twice in the past month. Pretty much everything has been said, but they are super fantastic. Heidi, Peter, everyone - such great people and someone is there 24/7 to answer any questions. They'll order you take out or help you find a place on your own. Try out Koushary tahrir, abu tarek, el abd for pastries,...

I'd recommend taking public transport from the airport into the city. I know a lot of people say get a taxi or pay for a private car, but if you don't give a hoot about...
