"A great deal for the money."
This is more of a hi-tier hostel than a regular type hotel for those who want regular type hotel
amenities. No room TV and wireless only works in small reception area. What makes this place work is the owner, Nabil (sp) and staff, very attentive, personable and aim to please,
can set you up with tours, a driver, airport pickup and departure, etc. Can't beat the location and view especially at night (get a balcony room), walking distance to Museum, the square where the revolution took place, the Nile river, Cairo Tower, etc
Breakfast is basic, bread,cheeses, fruit, yogert, a fried egg, coffee, tea; it will fill up and save you money. BTW - The tours and if you need a driver to take you anywhere will cost a lot less if you let Nabil handle it.He has local contacts. I would only caution if you are going to stay longer than seven days or so, you might want to stay at a regular type hotel if you are used to that, otherwise and again I can't stress this enough; you probably won't find a better deal in Cairo for the money, location, view (if you get a balcony room), rooms are very comfortable. Don't let the elevator ride when you first arrive scare you. It seems weird but
works fine. Hostel is on the 12th floor of an office building (top floor) if adventuresome give
it a try - for the money you won't beat it.
On a side note, if you want a nice dinner, etc; with atmosphere there are numerous 4-5
star hotels within a 15 minute walk from the Osiris to eat at....
