Liked: The hostel is in a great location -- near the museum, Tahrir square, and the metro. From the common area, there is a great view of the Nile and the Cairo Tower. The staff is very friendly, and willing to help out with various odds and ends (laundry, printing a train ticket, arranging transportation). A simple breakfast is included -- bread, jam, coffee/tea, hard boiled egg. Bathrooms always had hot water, TP, soap. Overall, I spent 11 days here, and will return in the future.

Liked: Location was good. There are many cheap eating options around the hostel

Disliked: The hostel is extremely small and common area is quite small as well. The staff seems to lack some basic travelling information. i.e. we asked which Metro station to get off for the Giza pyramid and the staff responded she does not take metro so she does not know... Overall the staffs seems uninterested in their guests. The mattress seemed pretty worn out.

Liked: The location was perfect as it is close to the Egyptian Museum and good, inexpensive eateries, Clean. The staff was helpful and speak English. As a certified guide, Hassan offered a wealth of Egyptiology knowledge. And yes, Cairo was safe as well as other locations I visit - Aswan, Luxor and Alexandria.

Disliked: Be prepared for an elevator with no door, one of which is iffy; near constant cigarette smoke, and a tiny common area. When the place is full I don't know how there would be enough room. But none of this is enough not to stay here.

Liked: Hostel is in a very good location, right in downtown Cairo, close to the museum and other city attractions. Rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious. By far the best part of staying at this hostel is the staff. Special thanks to Peter and Shareef, very kind and helpful people. Peter organised our trip around Egypt and everything ran very efficiently. I highly recommend anyone coming to Cairo to stay here and talk to Peter in regards to travelling around Egypt.
