This is a great hostel to use as a base for exploring Cairo or just hanging out and taking it easy. The rooms are clean, towels are provided, and the showers have hot water. You can literally see the bus station (for long distance travel, travel within Cairo, and to/from the airport) from the hostel, and Tehrir Square and the...

We loved our stay at wake up Cairo. It's close to the river, the museum, and downtown Cairo. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Most of all, the staff were very accommodating. Hazem was the receptionist during our stay and he was incredibly helpful. He was awake at odd hours to take our calls and to check us in after...

I booked a room here at the last minute, and from the prompt communication I received I knew I was in good hands. The hostel sent a driver pick me up from the airport late at night and my room was ready when I arrived. Travelers from all over the world stay here (at least one staff member speaks Japanese),...

The staff was extremely friendly. Ahmed and Hazel were very helpful tensing to our every need.The location was good, although the neighbourhood a bit dirty and noisy. But there are not quiet places in Cairo. The room has a/c which is essential in Cairo. The beds were very comfortable. A tip to sleep with the noise is to turn the...

I stayed here for four nights while searching for an apartment in Cairo and I couldn't be happier - the staff are lovely and very helpful, and the whole place has a really relaxed vibe. There's a nice chill-out zone, decent wifi and showers and the place is super-central - it's easy to get anywhere in Cairo from here. Nearby...

Very hard to find, specially because de neighbors Don't know that there is a hostel there. Affordable price but not exactly chrap. Spacious private room but small bathroom. I didnt receive towels and soap in arrival. Well located, with air condition.

We stayed in this hotel during our visit to Cairo. To be honest the hostel was not what I expected. For the price I expected a hostel with moist rooms and little staff who wouldn't speak English. None of that! The staff was really friendly and we actually hung out with them in the 'chill out corner' of the hostel....

We booked the hostel for our first nights in Cairo and ended up extending our stay as we found this place to be ideal for budget travellers like ourselves. We called the hostel before our arrival to arrange an airport pickup, which costs 100 Egyptian pounds. I highly recommend this service as the building at first might be hard to...

When I book accommodation, I'm looking for 4 things: a reasonable nightly rate, clean and comfortable bedding, a clean functional shower and washroom, and a decent location in or close to downtown. My stay at Wake Up Cairo hostel met my criteria and exceeded my expectations. We paid $55 for a 3-night stay in a double room (two single beds)...

It was difficult to find this place and the taxi driver got lost on the way here. However, located on the 7th and 10th Floor of an old building, it is surprisingly clean and comfortable enough. Cairo was cold and the bedding was thin, was saved by the air conditioners in the room. Much can be done to improve the...
