“Decent place to stay”
Reviewed 15 January 2011

We had originally signed up to stay at the Bedouin Hotel, but the driver provided to us by the hotel took us here - they said our room at the Bedouin was "being painted". Not sure what that was about. Cairo Stars turned out to be o.k for what was needed, but I'm sure a better place could be found for the price. Our room was very musty, but quiet. The staff will give you a sales pitch of day trips they offer upon arrival - we did one - the Giza pyramids and Memphis - if you're not interested just ask to skip it. The staff was generally helpful, and they have a computer available for use, though it's a bit slow.

Reviewed 18 December 2010

the hostel is cheap and you get what you paid for. the rooms are alright, the standard is pretty good for egypt. some of the rooms have windows to the street corner, and if you've been to cairo before, you know that the traffic is extremely loud 24/7, so it can be hard to fall asleep. that has nothing to do with hostel though. it could have been nice, but the staff can be a bit annoying. you can ask them questions and they will always try to help you, yes, but like most people in cairo, they want to negociate with you and sell you stuff. when we arrived at 2 at night (!!) we had to sit down and book a tour. when we said we didnt want to book yet because we were tired of course, the owner didn't listen. in the end we booked a tour and then we were let into our room. if you wonder why they have such great ratings on hostelworld and all these pages, it is because they will ask you a day before you leave to write a review for them, WHILE they look over your shoulder. if you don't give them a perfect rating, they will start to argue with you.
