Best place for active tourist

by Lena W on 04 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

The place is well located in the heart of Cairo. It is lead by Ahmed and his colleagues/employees who are all very friendly and helpful. To get there from the airport you better take a taxi (about 120 EGP) or arrange transportation with Ahmed before. Bus stops not very close to the property, about 30 min walk (information from Ahmed). Room was big and comfy, with a bathroom. Modest but functioning. It was clean, no roaches. Towels and cosmetics were not provided. Hot water was available however...

The mattress was comfy and the pillow was like a brick but we left with the promise of new ones :) which brings me to the amazing staff, they are genuinely friendly an...

Great value, good service

by Thibault B on 04 May 2016 (Couple Traveller)

Which brings me to the service, really attentive and pleasant. The guys were always helpful, don't be afraid to ask them for anything (towels, toilet...

Moscqitoes in room

by kasian27 on 20 Feb 2014 (Solo Traveller)

I "sleep" in this hostel In February for 1 night. Room was spacious, clean as it can be in this kind of hostels and region. I take room with shared bathroom, which was combination of toilette and shower without any protections of water from shower- very, very wet. The doors need to be lubricated.It was to loud creaking. The best was during a night. Mosquitoes were in action. I'm fortunate and I sleep for a short time , spatially if i have to leave bad early. I had fly early in morning, so I r...
