What can I say - a home away from home. A safe and comfortable refuge after a long day exploring Cairo. 1. The staff are super helpful, friendly and always there. Don't underestimate the importance of this. 2. The showers are awesome - great if you've just come from bushcamping in the desert. 3. Bathrooms cleaned several times daily and...

Just returned (Jan'12) from 2 weeks in Cairo & Luxor. "Wake Up" Hostel excellent value for price, location, cleanliness & staff helpfulness. Cairo quite safe & restful. Problems in Luxor though: terrible "first class" overnight Cairo-Luxor train..filthy, rickety, unheated. Fly instead. Book while there, much cheaper.Luxor terribly commercialised, full of hustle-hassel. Make it a one day turnaround, or 1 night...

This hostel is one of my favourite hostels ever. It is very central with great links to public transport and amazing views over Cairo. But what really makes this hostel so good is the STAFF all of them were FANTASTIC with us. I would suggest using the airport pickup service they offer as the hostel may be a Iittle hard...

I stayed at the Wake Up! Cairo hostel in July for 3 nights. The location is great (very close to the Egyptian museum), but the real treasure is the people. The staff are amazingly friendly and helpful. You will feel like you are visiting friends. They arranged for Mohammed to take me to the Pyramids on an all day excursion...
