“Amazing place to stay!”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

Wake up Cairo hostel is defo the place to be for young travellers. The hostel is in the heart of Cairo 5mins from the museum and Tahrir square. I'm a solo backpacker and stayed here for 5 days made tons of pod friends both other traveller fellows and the extremely nice and friendly staff at the hostel. The dorm and the rooms are clean and spacey. I love it and can't recommend it enough. Thank you guys!

... don't advertise having a common room with a TV available if your staff is just going to be watching it (in Arabic stations) throughout the entire day without regard to any paying customers who might want to spend a few minutes flipping the stations. Not sure why Lonely Planet was gushing over how nice the staff is. They seem pretty indifferent to us.

This was my first time in Cairo and this hostel was great. The location is extremely central being minutes away from the Egyptian museum, tahrir square, the metro, etc. The staff were great. They were welcoming, friendly and helpful. I'll probably end up staying here again when I pass through in the fall.

this was my 2nd time to visit Egypt.it was Incredible value for money.i was absolutely impressed. What i got for 9 euros? - Perfect location: 2 minutes from the museum and Tahrir Square - Clean room and WC - Breakfast included- Staff was very friendly. Despite early arrival (5 hours before the check-in time) they allowed me to check in. I would definitely recommend it to everybody looking for cheap and quality stay in Cairo.

Found this hostel through lonely planet, was expecting the rooms and toilet to be cleaner. We spent two of our first nights in Cairo there and to be honest for the price of a double room we found many better options than Wake UP. The staff though are friendly and pretty nice.

This is an oustanding hostel, especially for the cost. You are right next to Tahrir Square and the Egyptian Museum in the heart of downtown and can get to anywhere in Cairo from bus depot or never ending line of taxis. The hostel in managed by a great staff. They were all friendly, helpful, and fun to chat with. The hostel is not very big, so it has a nice charm to it as some hostels feel like you are bunking up in a mental institution. I really enjoyed talking with Peter who works the front desk. This is a very trustworthy place as I found out upon checking out when I had left my passport and money under my bed. A cleaning lady turned it in and I was relieved of what would have been a true dilemma. I would recommend it to anyone

Room Tip: The common area have a lovely view
