Positive Reviews

A great location for sightseeing

Guests who enjoy exploring their surroundings on foot love the hostel's location in downtown Cairo, noting that the popular Egyptian Museum is just ten minutes away on foot, and that there are many restaurants and shops even closer. Travellers also comment that the staff are able to arrange reasonably priced tours and transportation to more distant sights, such as the pyramids.

Negative Reviews

A bit of a fixer-upper

Travellers are occasionally taken aback by the older property's unattractive exterior, describing it it as a bit creepy. Inside, the key areas of concern are dim lighting, outdated bathroom temperamental plumbing, and uncomfortable beds. Guests also comment on the older lift, noting it does not appear reliable and a key from the front desk is required to access it.

Below-average housekeeping

The overall standard of housekeeping throughout the property is generally considered to be unsatisfactory. Dust, insects, and linens in poor condition are frequently reported issues. Cigarette odour is also an issue, even in the 'non-smoking' guest rooms.

Mixed reviews for the staff

While the owner and managers have received high marks for their friendliness and hospitality, guests also experience disappointingly poor service from the staff at the front desk. Guests regularly report failures to honour online reservations and a generally unfriendly attitude.
