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.
