The price is decent at 15 EUR for a double with shower and the location is great in downtown. However, the place is dingy. Matresses are uncomfortable and very dirty. The paint is coming off the ceilings and walls and the private bathroom was very poor. Skip the breakfast. Budget doesn't have to be dirty and dingy. Upgrade the mattresses,...

If you need something for a night or two this is the place. This hostel is situated really in the hear of Cairo close to Tahrir Square and Ramses. The price is very good between 10 to 20 usd per night. The rooms are big, but of course you don't expect to find more than average condition for a hostel....

While reading this review, I want the reader to keep in mind that I have visited many countries (even developing ones) and stayed in Youth Hostel and Classy Hotels. So while you read this, don’t think to yourself ‘just another Westerner who’s used to luxury’. There are a lot of details here and I am including them since it’s important...

The management is simply ouitstanding: helpful, knowledgable, sympathetic--in short willing to do whatever it takes to makes a tourist's stay in Cairo menorable and easy. We planned to stay...

couldn't ask for more - great value for money. rooms not too modern, but staying in isn't the reason why you come to cairo. very knowledgeable and helpful staff, even the homeless guy by the gate. don't even think of missing out on mango smoothie from the juice shop on the right.
