Meramees Hostel, Cairo
Can't recommend
On arrival at accommodation said they did not yet have our booking confirmation as we had only booked a couple of hours before. They asked us what room we had booked. We told them a room with a private bathroom. After sometime and a couple of calls the guy on reception said we had only booked a double room with shared bathroom. Without our own confirmation we could not show him otherwise. Instead of a room with a double bed, private bathroom, and balcony, we were given a room with 4 single beds, shared bathroom and a window. We received a copy of our booking confirmation later that day and presumed the accommodation did as well. Instead of changing our room the guy on reception asked my husband to pay him a tip for giving us a room with a view, meaning it had a window. The room we had been given was huge in size so from that point of view was comfortable. The air-conditioner worked well but the only control was on or off. The shared bathrooms were reasonably clean and the shower pressure was ok. One of the toilets was broken and the other had a cistern that took ages to fill so it often wasn't flushed. The free wi-fi was hit and miss and worked 2 out if the 3 days we were there. The included breakfast was pretty ordinary and was the same every day. The common area was a great place to meet other travelers but was close to reception that always seemed full of locals who were very loud and did not seem to be guests staying at the accommodation. ,
