6/10 Good

Great little place with an amazing rooftop, very friendly and helpful staff, good location, tasty breakfast and great atmosphere. Unfortunately the amount of mosquitoes is just something else - we could barely get any rest as the whole night you just fight with the annoying beasts. Because of that I would definitely choose another place next time. Shame!

I really loved this place! Bohemian and laid back. Lots of adorable cats who are super friendly. Great breakfast! I was super cold in my room (no heat), but I didn’t pack for winter very well either. Old fashioned (but quick) elevator takes you to 7th floor, you walk up to the 8th. You cannot call for the elevator to go down (sometimes you’re lucky and it’s there and sometimes not). I would definitely stay here again!

Great value for a very convenient location between the musem and Talaat Harb square. The rooftop is very quiet and relaxing. The staff are friendly. The rooms are very basic and there is no breakfast or coffee, but of course, it’s a hostel, so that’s expected. Highly recommend.
