    An Englishmans dream.

    This hostel (it is basically a hotel) is ideally located just a three minute walk from Tahir Square (Central Cairo). The manager did not try to sell me or my wife a single thing during our entire stay (unusual for Egypt). In fact he just kept offering us free things (food tea etc). I would highly recommend this hostel for anyone from the UK or Europe. I have been to Egypt many times and I must say I never felt so relaxed anywhere here before including 5 star hotels. The rooms are spacious and clean, the showers have nice hot water, the WiFi is easily fast enough to stream a movie on my iPad (again I have not found this to be the case even in five star hotels). The rooms have a fridge and satellite tv (Mainly Arab TV but fine for sports or music). I would reccomend the triple room with balcony view. The price is great and you will have plenty of space plus a seating area. When you first enter the front of the main building you may be unsure as it is not decorated or cleaned to the same standard as the Hostel (which is located on the first floor). However once you enter the hostel you will be treated to shining white marble floors and freshly painted and decorated walls with trendy art ETC. To summarise If you are looking for a safe place to stay, that is clean and has respectful staff this is the place for you. I cannot reccomend it enough. This hostel is family run so all the staff are very decent and you will know where you stand with them. Best regards Robert.

    Scamming their own guests!

    Super dishonest business practice makes this hotel one to avoid. But first, let’s start with the pros: I t’s located close to the museum and downtown, room and bathroom are quite clean, staffs _appears_ friendly. Now for the cons. The shady business practice cheating on guests is not like anything we’ve seen in Egypt. If you’re familiar with the constant hustlers, scammers, and people taking advantage of you in Egypt, this hotel takes it to a whole another level. Hotels are meant to be a place for where we can trust while we explore the city, but Hostagram cheated us on selling us a super expensive tour, only to not have lived up to the expectations. Things promised to us were “extra”, and the transportation was throwing us on the local bus and having to figure out where and how to go to the destination ourselves. We were promised someone would pick us up at the destination but that didn’t happen, and on our way back, the “bus” that was suppose to drive us back never came and we had to find our own way back. The worst part is, when we found out how much Hostgram paid the “tour guide” that provided us the tour, it was less than 1/3rd of what we paid! And all the promised included Itinerary were “extra” defeating the purpose of the whole idea of “tour”. Charging us 3x the price of what was a self directed trip, is unfounded. I would strongly suggest staying at other options because these people are only there to scam you, not to help you. Avoid at all costs!

  • 6.0.Good

    Decent but only if you get a deal when booking

    Pros: Location is great, and hostel is easy to find Rooms are spacious as is bathroom Water is hot and shower pressure is good Included breakfast was nice Cons: It’s a walk up building, which was fine for us, but should be noted for travelers who are unable to go up two flights of stairs to get to the lobby. Cleanliness of the room left something to be desired. Dingy rug, random hairs in the beds, dirty floors... Overall an okay stay, but they should either drop their price point a bit or clean more thoroughly.
