Maria and Sayed are the best! When I arrived Maria gave me a total run down of everything I needed to know about getting around luxor like markets with fixed prices, good places to eat, where you catch mini busses and the best way to see the all the tombs and temples. She went so far as to break down...

Wow... what utter rubbish. I was treated like a money machine. And they do it so well that you think you are being treated as family and taken under their wings. But while you think you are in good with the hotel getting cheap tours your actually getting charged more. And the staff spent most of the time bad mouthing...

I am travelling overland from South Africa to Egypt and nowhere have I had such amazing service! Sayed and Maria are amazing hosts! They are genuine, have experience and knowledge of Luxor, and offer the best prices for accomodation and tours. I extended my stay and would have loved to stay longer! Thank you!

Maria, Said, Tarek, Shushu and the rest of the team - they just make this place special. They were doing everything to make us feel at home and help us get around Luxor without paying exaggerated tourist prices. Said even organized us a cheap hotel in Hurghada, our next stop. Plus they have the coolest cat on earth, Honey!

If you're in Luxor, this place is your best bet. The hosts were particularly interested in my safety and gave advice on how to stay out of trouble. They also arranged for me West bank tour and Hot Air balloon trip, both of them were good value for money. Maria, Saeed, Mahmoud and everyone here are nice people and know...

I'm writing this review after backpacking around Egypt for two months. It's my only review because I think this hostel really deserves it. I stayed at a dorm. The room with fan and AC, sheets and towels were clean. A very well balanced breakfast was included and it was possible to buy water and other drinks for street prices. The...

Excellent value for money, friendly staff, great breakfast, decent wifi and good atmosphere. No complaints. I'll stay there again when I go to Luxor! I stayed for 5 nights. They also offer tours at reasonable prices. Best budget option in Luxor.

I extended my stay and overall everything was fine. I get the idea that different guests get treated differently at this guesthouse depending on factors. At the beginning a staff member was a bit too friendly and helpful to me. I probably should have nipped it in the bud but he was so persistent. One day I found him at...

When i arrived from Aswan the staff from the hostel where welcoming me on a great way!

To get around in town they gave me a map from Luxor and from the Westbank. Very...
