Worth the money. Staff are very kind and polite. location is great. It's near to many good restaurants. Egyptian museum is only 10 minutes by walk. It's also close to Nile river. Citadel is also not very far away. It's hardly 10 minutes by taxi

I stayed here in March 2017, and it was a very good experience. The staff are very helpful and will go out of their way to make you feel at home. It offers a good breakfast, very comfortable beds and a calm environment in the middle of bustling downtown Cairo. What else do you need?

Thanks to Mido and Wake UP Cairo, we had an amazing stay in Egypt! The hostel was very nice (Mido upgraded our rooms for no extra charge) and we had our entire weekend planned out by Mido before we even got there.

This is an oustanding hostel, especially for the cost. You are right next to Tahrir Square and the Egyptian Museum in the heart of downtown and can get to anywhere in Cairo from bus depot or never ending line of taxis. The hostel in managed by a great staff. They were all friendly, helpful, and fun to chat with. The...
