The hostel is extremely clean, spacious, and comfortable! It was a nice resting spot in our crazy travels, and exactly what we needed. The staff at the hostel, especially Mohamed, made our trip though. He was always eager to point us in the direction of adventure, accompany us to local spots, and share the best places to visit. He definitely...

Had a fantastic time at Brothers Hostel; the team are fabulous, really knowledgeable and generous - they took great care of me that I feel like I'm part of their family. Airport transfers, good breakfast, excellent location, safe, clean and comfortable - everything you need in a hostel and just ask and Mohamed, Karim or Emam will organise it ....

Because of a plane problem, I arrived in Cairo in the middle of the night with no place booked to stay. I looked hostels up on the internet and Brothers advertised 24 hour access. True to that, I got to the hostel unannounced and found someone willing to give me a bed. He was very friendly and always remained so,...

I decided to stay with this hostel because it offered free airport pick up and as my flight arrived at 2am, I thought it was best to be accountable. Even though my flight was delayed by over an hour, my driver was waiting at the front of arrivals for me. My room was massive and it is in the Yacoubian...

Stay here. The staff are helpful, kind, accomodating and will give you everything you want and need. Lovely people and a great hostel with amazing value for money. They can also help you organise great trips and advise you on Cairo in general. Probably the best hostel I have ever stayed in.

My stay here was great. VERY helpful staff, and they're all very kind also. Knowing a tad of Arabic will go long way toward endearing yourself around the city, btw. I was also able to book a day-tour of the Pyramid complexes (Giza, Sakkara and Dahshur) through here, with the single nicest and most informative, helpful guide I have ever...

This was a nice lil place.. the staff were very lovely but it is too expensive for what you get.. especially when you can go down the road to other hostels with the same quality for the half the price.

If you are looking for a really nice and cheap hostel in Cairo, look no further! This is probably the very best value you get in Cairo. The location is excellent, you are minutes from Tahrir Square and two metro stations, Talat Harb square and the Egyptian Museum a walking distance. The staff is extremely helpful and accomodating and the...

“Choose the ensuite room for quiet. Beware that Egypt doesn't use shower curtains, so bathrooms get very wet. Step carefully, and put belongings in a plastic bag.”
