Prime location to museum
My experience was great here. The staff were welcoming and friendly English speakers. The view was right in tahir square, walking distance from the museum. Would stay here again.

Great for a hostel! Staff were excellent (there were many of them for such a small place). Helped with any questions i had for directions or advice on where to eat. Wifi was excellent. I was placed on top bunk of the dorm, which was very uncomfortable. Other than that it was nice. Breakfast was simple but filling. Would stay there again. Great location!

Great Hostel In Central Location
During our time in Egypt, we stayed here on two separate occasions. The bunk room was clean and comfortable on our first visit. The private room with private bath was also clean and comfortable. The front desk personnel were awesome! They helped us get an Uber to the airport and they also helped with suggestions on things to do in Cairo. This location is easy to walk to the Egyptian Antiquities Museum.

The best place for backpackers (especially women)
I recommend this place honestly! The staff is so friendly, always smiling and helpful...nice views and the museum is like 5 mins walking (literally). The girls are so sweet, honest and genuine! They always try to make you feel comfortable which I really appreciated it ;) I’ll be back in December and I’ll definitely stay there again..!!

8/10 Very good

Perfect hostel in central location
Welcomed by very friendly staff. Made me feel at home as soon as I arrived. My taxi driver couldn't find it even with Google maps but don't let this put you off. It's really easy to find. Located in an entrance door between 2 cafes that do good tea at cheap price. Room was immaculate. I've stayed in many hostels and this one is like something out of a home catalogue. Very modern and perfect. Has a balcony over looking the main square. I couldn't thank the staff enough for making me feel welcome in a strange country and making the start of my solo travels a little easier. If you want good homely atmosphere stay here. Mira is a very friendly hostess even tho our conversation mainly used google translate her english is good.
