Liked: The wifi worked fine.

Disliked: As a woman traveling alone, I felt unsafe at this establishment, and was harassed by one of the managers. The whole place stank, and you have to take an incredibly sketchy elevator to get to the top floor of the building. The bathroom was nearly dysfunctional. I would not recommend the area to women traveling alone.

Disliked: Didnt have much airflow in the room, and the shower took awhile to heat up, but among the better showers in cairo backpacker hostels for sure.!

Liked: Good location - no touts about, staff are friendly and not too pushy with tours, safe and secure, shared bathrooms are immaculate so don't worry about that option, shared entrance and stairway looks sketchy as it is dim and dirty but it is not unsafe. Breakfast is sufficient. Would stay here again.

Disliked: The beeping horns of the traffic - but that is Cairo and not the hostels fault. Ensuite bathroom was a cubicle with no ceiling would save pennies and go for shared option next time.
