Fabulous 8.8 From 20 reviews

Good 6.0
Simple & underwhelming
Location was good for downtown Cairo. But hard to find at first. The hostel was on the fifth floor of a building, and the sign on the street was not very obvious at first. The room was big and seemed clean. The bathroom, down the hall was sub-par, but it worked. I asked for some clothes to be washed; when I got them back there was still an unpleasant smell...they didn’t seem too clean. The WiFi was pretty bad and the “included breakfast” was below average too. It was fine for 1 night, but nothing was to rave about.

Very Good 8.0
Good budget Hostel
This hostel was small and somewhat tucked away and in an older, somewhat dirty building but overall for the money the room and the service was very good and I would stay there again

Exceptional 10.0
It's located in the near the national museum and all walking distance to most of major attractions. Egptyion breakfast was delicious and shower water pressure is really good. Highly recommend for budget travellers.
