    Very good option for a one night stay”

    Staff is so friendly Hostel near to everything Toilets should be a little bit cleaner Have your off/raid spray on your stay as mosquitos are a lot specially by night

    If you are looking for a great place for a low price then that place is the best! It's near 4 metro stations not only one .. near the train station and in a place where there is public transportation for anywhere in Cairo and also many places outside Cairo. لو انت بتدور على مكان رائع وبسعر معقول يبقى ده فعلا أحسن مكان ليك. قريب من ٤ محطات مترو وكمان قريب من محطة القطر وفي منطقة فيها مواصلات لكل مكان في القاهرة وحتى اماكن كتير برا القاهرة.

    African House Hostel”

    Things I like
    Reasonable price

    Difficult to find. It took 30 minutes walk from the Ramsis Railway Station, although it is only 5 minute walking distance. Location is after all good, but hard to find. Suffered from mosquito bites.

    A decent place with homely touch”

    Things I like
    Spacious rooms with homely colors and high ceilings give you feeling you are at home.The staff is very helpful,no pushing for tours.many free things are provided like Wifi and drinks and toilete papers.We felt every moment that we are more than welcome.
    Things I don’t like
    Breakfast can be better,only jam and cheese and eggs+bread and a drink.It was good but can be better

    The african hostel's building looks like an ancient palace in scotland,we have been told that this building is the oldest in downtown-160 years old-it is amazing.We would stay here again.
