On reflection, I think Tripadvisor needs a 'hostel' section as well as hotel and B&B. This is definitely not a B&B in the sense I have become used to seeing reviewed in Tripadvisor. The ranking as the 7th out of 37 B&B's in Cairo is really quite misleading. Indeed, the staff call this a hostel and not a hotel. The...

This is a budget hotel so hence the rooms need work but they are clean. My only issue was the bathroom which was too small. We aren't fussy though so we got over it quickly....

I've been traveling all around Egypt, staying in hostels at Luxor, Aswan and Dahab, definitely Alexander Hostel in Cairo is by far the best one! Friendly staff, clean rooms and bathrooms, accurate tourist information and a very good-central location in Cairo!

Vacation in Egypt was my cherised dream, I could get a trip with my best friend. We had to be sure that everything was perfect since we come from Mexico City, from plane ticket, transportation, visits to touristic sites.

“If possible, choose a room which is the farthest away from the common room and reception desk. This will help you get a better sleep, as these rooms are quieter, and you will more removed from the cigarette smoke which permeates the air.”
