  • I booked four days here while I explored Cairo. It is a very central location and just about everything is walkable although if you want to see Old Cairo it's a bit of a trek. Staff is very helpful if you're looking for advice on places to see or where to eat, directions, etc. I feel bad for them that the tourism industry has taken such a hit the past few years, but on the bright side it meant I had the 6 bed dorm to myself 3 out of the 4 nights. Breakfast is simple but good.

  • First impression left me wanting. Then I changed my mind! Yes an old building, yes the stairs are a long way up a dirty stairwell. The rooms are clean, the showers work (and cleaned every day), and the hosts are wonderful. I landed in Cairo not knowing what I wanted to do with 9 days, they took control and set me up with a wonderful time. A cup of tea or coffee was always at hand when sitting in the common area, conversation excellent. Highly recommend.
