6/10 Good

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.

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

10/10 Exceptional

Great location in downtown Cairo – we had a room in the wing opposite the reception and it was quieter than the other side. A lot of shops and great, not expensive local restaurants in the area, close to metro stations, short walk to Egyptian Museum. The room was clean, spacious and bright. The breakfast was very good – a mix of continental and local (I prefer the latter), and the coffee was BIG :) The staff was super helpful and kind. On the first night we were placed in a different room than we actually booked (worse one), but on the next day moved to a proper room. That's a detail, but I wish we could stay in our room straight away – it would make our experience perfect. It's a good quality for the money, although for that price you can choose from many options in downtown Cairo. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would come back to Meramees Hostel again.
