An amazing place to stay in Cairo, well positioned in the heart of the city. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful and were readily available to answer any questions and give advice. The rooms are basic but clean and all have aircon, a breakfast is included and there are tonnes of local places to eat within a few minutes walk (Check out what i’d recommend eating in egypt here!). There is also the added bonus of free airport pickup, our driver was so friendly and welcomed us and even shared his lunch with us on the way! For a hassle free, easy going time in Cairo and at around £5/$8 a night, you cant go wrong! It is also possible to arrange tours through the hostel to see the pyramids etc, although remember its the same as anywhere and you have to bargain even when booking through a hostel. We were offered a day tour to the pyramids for 90 Egyptian pounds each, after some hard bargaining we got it down to around 40 Egyptian pounds each.
