    Amazing hospitality!! Although some facilities are perfect (if course if you see its price, it’s acceptable) all stuff there is so kind and caring!! I don’t know how other hostel/hotel is like, but you will see brilliant Cairo people there!

    Great place to stay

    Great place to stay, far exceeded my expectations, close to all the important places including downtown, easy to access, secure, reliable, and only metres away from all the necessary amenities including the metro, restaurants, shopping etc. The staff (Salah, Hamdi, Gad and all the others) and the owner (Mr Robert) go out of their way here to accomodate guests, and really make you feel at home. It is both incredibly affordable and includes everything you will need to have a comfortable stay. I highly encourage anyone travelling solo or with a small group to consider staying at City Hostel.

    Value for money

    They have just recently renovated the place so I would said they really care about their customer and is definitely value for money, this makes me to always back to them. Besides, cleanliness is tip top.. The woman who do the cleaning will check and clean the shared bathroom/toilet most of the time after you use the toilet to make sure is clean and dry all the time.

    Best hostel in cairo

    This my second time stayed in this hostel and robert and his staff are very helpful as always and helped me up all the way from train ticket to aswan, Alexandria and laundry service and etc. And as a solo female traveller, I feel safe all the time with their cctv installed in and outside the building and the 24 hours front desk, will definitely come back again for them whenever I'm in cairo.
