I've stayed in the solo room for one night. Even though the room didn't have an air-conditioner, the temperature was fine because of the season. Rental bicycle was available with 25 EGP per day. You can see the city from the roof top. Wifi was available in all floors.

It was our anniversary in a couple of days and he even organized a small party with music and dancing at the hostel. We... More

This is just the sweetest damned place. The owners are a charming Egyptian-European couple, and the remainder of the staff give the place a family feel. The place is very much a backpacker hostel, which means that most guests are in their 20s. My friends and I, in our 30s, did not, however, feel out of place. The location is... More

From the minute we were picked up at the train to the minute we were dropped back off Maria and Sayed were nothing but helpful. They had wonderful hand made maps of the area highlighting all of the best food options as well as were to get a bus for the temples or the best route to walk. Maria took... More

Staff is super friendly, they organize tours, tickets, falafel, whatever you need. Rooms are ok, airco is noisy, simple bathrooms. Would totally recommend if you are traveling on a budget, or just prefer a place where you actually meet a few people!

This is the best place i've stayed on in Egypt and I can't imagine that there is a better place in Luxor. With the friendly owners and staff you'll immediately feel at home. There was free coffee and tea all day which the staff constantly served you if you spent time in the reception area. When you arrive to the... More
