Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 October 2016

Me and my friend were able to enjoy our trip because the staff from Freedom Hostel made it hassle-free for us. The accommodation is clean and the room we had is very spacious. The staff really came out of their way to assist us during the whole duration of the trip. I highly recommend Freedom Hostel to travelers who wants a comfortable but budget-friendly accommodation.

Room Tip: If you want more privacy, you can get the deluxe room which has its own bathroom.

This hostel is really a great place to stay. The staff go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. It's easy to get around from the hostels location, it's walking distance to the Egyptian museum and a short taxi ride to the Islamic area (be careful with taxi drivers though as they will take you the loooong way round.) We had a private room and it was very nice and spacious. The beds are not the most confortable and the breakfast isn't great. If the bread at breakfast was changed to the local bread you find everywhere in Cairo it would be much better! (Also local cheese would be great too!) Overall, this is a great budget place to stay and I'd definitely stay there again.

When I got in Freedom Hostel I couldn't imagine how nice it was just looking the building from the street. The staff is very polite and helpful. As soon as I got there Ahmad brought me a welcome tea. The room and bathroom in the private room I booked were very cozy and clean. The only thing I didn't like is that the hostel is located in the 4th floor of the building and there's no elevator. At least we did a lot of exercise. :)

Nice small and clean hostel with very kind people working there. After an exausting day trip through cairo you can always drink a cup of shei in the lobby and chit-chatting with the personel. Really a place to come home to and rest, talking about the nice things you can see in cairo.
