    I was afraid to be in egypt this time but i felt realy safe in the african hostel and also in the streets.People running this place made my stay special,they kept talking to me about egypt and its people and they made me feel like home.I stayed only 4 nights in egypt and i think egypt is better than before,anybody can feel this in the streets while you are looking at faces of the egyptians.I will come back soon for longer stay and for sure i will stay in the african.

    The staff was amazing and the facilities were clean. On many occasions the staff would take extra time to help me with the Egyptian culture and language, in addition to help me navigate the chaotic streets. This is defiantly a place I would recommend and return to.

    Very friendly and helpful staff that arranged transport to and from the airport at reasonable price. Large van for $24 one way. Free and fast Internet! My children very much liked the 2 lovely cats!

    The floor on the bathroom was wet and did not dry up. A bit chilly. And do not forget the mosquito net. There are a lot of them! We could hardly sleep at all. The breakfast is very simple!
