Toronto, Canada
Reviewed 20 December 2006

For a budget stay in downtown Cairo I cannot think of a better place to stay. Staff were VERY friendly and accomodating and it was central to many attractions (minutes walk to the Egyptian Museum). All that and the price can't be beat. Definitely not the Ramses Hilton but clean and friendly.

Breakfast is included (Egyptian & Continental) and our staff will exert each and every effort to make your stay a comfortable one.Almost all our rooms have air conditioning, including our dorm room. ... more   less

“Rooms on the other half of the hostel (the one which is opposite to the reception desk) has a better bathroom :)”

“The rooms are so cheap as it is, choose one with air conditioning. My friend and I paid a little more and got our own room with 2 beds. We kept all our belongings there so we didn't have to cart around our stuff or worrying about other people in the same room. We would just lock the door whenever leaving.”

“Avoid this place and go somewhere else! I chose a private room for myself, meaning no-sharing. Disappointing.”
