Nice small and clean hostel with very kind people working there. After an exausting day trip through cairo you can always drink a cup of shei in the lobby and chit-chatting with the personel. Really a place to come home to and rest, talking about the nice things you can see in cairo.

The staff and facilities were about as good as I would have expected for downtown Cairo - both were great. The 3 stories of stairs to climb was torture, though. At the end of a long tiring day of climbing and touring, the last thing I wanted to do was climb those stairs, and they didn't have air conditioning or... More

Everyone has been so warm and welcoming -- Ahmed, Eslam, Mostafa, Sare are all very helpful and resourceful.

I stayed here one night in a shared room with AC. The other patrons were very respectful of quiet time and the beds were comfortable and clean.

The staff at Freedom Hostel is hands down the most helpful and enjoyable group of people you will find in Cairo. Eslam, Mustafa, Ahmed, and the rest were not only knowledgable about anything and everything in Egypt but—especially as a solo traveller—really looked out for you. Whether planning a fun day trip the morning of, or planning a whole weekend... More
