I stayed at the Hostel in January 2015 and was very impressed. My room was both clean and quiet, while the staff were truly excellent. They helped arrange transport for trips with an equally excellent taxi driver, who even accompanied me and my father to the train station to ensure we caught the correct train. Those working at the Hostel... More

Not a great place to meet fellow travellers. I was the only one staying there... Manager was good and friendly but recommended an awful tour with Star Shine. Very poorly organized tour with time changing on the fly. The guides would say meet at a time the next day at the hostel. A new guide would come 2 hours early... More

We were a group from Austria and spent a great time at the Sara Inn Hostel in September 2014. I can highly recommend this hostel, for it is extremely centrally located in Downtown Cairo (like 5 minutes away from the Tahrir Square). Apart from that, the staff is really nice - they were happy to help us with every problem... More

I stayed in Sara Inn for two weeks in October 2014. I highly recommend it to others. I was sad to leave as it became a home away from home. the staff are more than happy to help and advise you in your trips all over Egypt. they arranged trips for me to Aswan, Luxor, Fayom Oasis and Alexandria.

The owner and staaf is very helpful and kind. Good location - near Tahrir square but not too close for hearing noise from the streets. Quiet and safe place to stay (with comfortable beds :) ) I will definitely come back and stay here.

Hostel is conveniently located near Midan Tahrir (main square) meaning that it is easy to take metro to any direction and Egyptian museum is just few steps away. However, the rooms are quite old, without any charm and shared bathroom is really really basic and small. Breakfast is below average (and average is not high either in Egypt) and there... More

“A room with shower inside is the best option and was A$25 for a double, including light breakfast...great value I thought. There are two floors of rooms and you have a choice.”

“ask for the free pickup at the airport if you stay minimum two nights. This is a KEY service when you arrive late at night. I do not know any other hostel providing this service. Very close to the Sara Inn you can find a take out and a restaurant (very good and cheap) at KAZA'S in Ksar el nil (two blocks away) Highly recommended.”
