Beautiful little boutique hostel. Staff were lovely, even bought us tea in the evening. They were informative and polite. Clean and fresh rooms/facilties. Good wifi. Computers and laundry available which was a bonus. Unfortunately on the top floor but worth the climb. Convenient location.

Stayed here twice during my stay in Egypt, the staff was very helpful and booked us our 3 day Nile cruise, which was great. The hostel location is very good, close to many good restaurants and the Egypt museum. Very recommended.

The staff was absolutely amazing, especially Sara. The location, wifi, cleanliness and shower was great. I came for 3 nights but stayed for 9. All of the advice they gave me was top notch. The common area is great for solo travellers and people looking to make friends.
