Met at the Train Station and walked to hostel, which is only a 10 minute walk but thats where the good points end. Located down some dirty & dusty back alley, which you probably never be able to find on you own. A/C requested on booking but only fan. Room basic but looked clean. Then the hard sell for trips came. Relentless in trying to sell trips including balloon rides and didn't seem to take to hint that I wasn't interested. He requested my Hostel World booking paperwork, which no other hostel wanted and then insisted I pay for 6 nights up front. No way I was going to pay in advance after only being there for less than 15 minutes. Didn't seem to understand that it's usual to pay on leaving. More insistance for my money, at which point I collected my bags and left. Avoid, much better places to stay (except Luxor Hotel).
