Superb location in the heart of Cairo

Spotless and comfortable rooms

All rooms, whether private or dorms, are reportedly clean. Groups are conveniently accommodated in the dorm rooms, without forgoing comfort and privacy. Guests also like that they get to enjoy amazing views of the city, especially when viewed from the room’s balcony.

Cheerful and attentive staff

They also mention that the staff members are helpful towards their needs and requests – efficiently handling everything needed.

Negative Reviews

Issues with the bathrooms

Reviewers bring up numerous issues with the bathrooms. Aside from the fact that most are shared, the bathrooms reportedly lack sufficient equipment to prevent flooding, such as effective drains and shower curtains. To add, guests indicate that the shower’s water pressure is weak.

No in-room heater

During winters, visitors report that the rooms get excessively cold due to the lack of heaters.

Hit-and-miss Wi-Fi connectivity

The Wi-Fi is described as rather disappointing, in terms of speed and stability. Guests are dismayed with the intermittence of the connection, especially inside the rooms.
