The Australian hostel was created primarily to connect people from all over the world.

We aim to create a cosy place that makes you feel at home. Our attentive staff will give you a warm welcome once you arrive.

We offer clean, comfortable and safe accommodation with new furniture, clean bed linen and fresh towels. All the rooms have air conditioning.

The hostel is located in the heart of downtown, which is 10 minutes' walk from the Egyptian Museum and 15 minutes from the railway station and bus station.

We also have a lobby for relaxing after a long day visiting, where you can chat, listen to all kinds of music, dance, play cards and watching international TV.

We give you the guarantee that you'll enjoy every single moment in the Australian Hostel with us, because it's your home away from home.

Book four nights in a double or triple or four-bed room (or five nights in the single room) and you'll receive a free pick-up from the airport; just ask!

The Australian hostel wants to share the fun with you!
Prices are per person per night.
