Fantastic stay in this hostel. It is the perfect place to discover Cairo an the real and truth Egyptian people. The team is the best, you can trust in All of them: Hazem, Rasha, Aber, Ahmed, and the taxi driver Mussa that will give you to the pyramids. You won't regret to choose this place!

Had a great stay at Wake UP! Cairo Hostel. Location is central, an easy walk away from Tahrir Square, Talat Harb (lots of great bookstores in this area, plus a rather tucked-away artsy little movie theater and art gallery/reading room), and the Metro. Bedrooms and bathrooms were pretty clean and well-stocked - plus you get a towel - breakfast was... More

I booked a room here at the last minute, and from the prompt communication I received I knew I was in good hands. The hostel sent a driver pick me up from the airport late at night and my room was ready when I arrived. Travelers from all over the world stay here (at least one staff member speaks Japanese),...

But there are not quiet places in Cairo. The room has a/c which is essential in Cairo. The beds were very comfortable. A tip to sleep with the noise is to turn the... More

I stayed here for four nights while searching for an apartment in Cairo and I couldn't be happier - the staff are lovely and very helpful, and the whole place has a really relaxed vibe. There's a nice chill-out zone, decent wifi and showers and the place is super-central - it's easy to get anywhere in Cairo from here. Nearby... More
