The staff couldn't have been more helpful and nicer - our room was ready when we arrived even though it was 7:00 am, they organised a really good value trip to the pyramids with a knowledgeable driver, and they even gave us a discount because of our name! The room was better than expected considering the price, comfortable, with air... More

As for value for money you can't fund a better spot in Cairo. A few points to note - the average taxi driver will not have a clue how to find this place so make use of the shuttle bus (same goes for any hotel in Cairo). Sara Hotel starts on the 6th floor of a building - there is... More

This is a hostel not the Hilton, rooms are basic and clean. I booked this hostel because of the free airport pick up but it was a much better experience than expected. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Emails were answered quickly. I was there during a religious holiday and the owner even shared a special meal with me.... More

I stayed here for four nights after reading some good reviews. Of course, after my stay, I think those reviews may be years old and not updated. I had to ask for the room to be cleaned each day and the toilet clogged and was not sufficiently fixed the third time it happened. The mattress was hard as a rock.... More

After our arrival, the friendly man from the hostel gave us advice about our trip. Because of our short stay, he recommanded a driver for us. For 25 euro the driver stayed with us all day and drove us around cairo. It was perfect. Also you do not have to deal with all the salespeople who can be a hassle... More

“A room with shower inside is the best option and was A$25 for a double, including light breakfast...great value I thought. There are two floors of rooms and you have a choice.”

“ask for the free pickup at the airport if you stay minimum two nights. This is a KEY service when you arrive late at night. I do not know any other hostel providing this service. Very close to the Sara Inn you can find a take out and a restaurant (very good and cheap) at KAZA'S in Ksar el nil (two blocks away) Highly recommended.”
