This is the best place to stay in Luxor, it is cheap, clean and in a great location within easy reach of the most important places to see in Luxor. Mia the Australian owner treats each guest individually. The staff are just great, I did an early check in (6am) and luckily the room I booked was available, she got me settled in no time, at no extra cost, I was able to sleep after a long bus ride from Cairo, the thing I needed was a good rest and what a relief to be able to have a shower, sleep in a clean huge room with clean bedding. The hostel pricing is exceptionally reasonable for the quality of what you get. The 10LE (Egyptian pounds) for breakfast is awesome, for what you get you will not be able to buy a similar breakfast for that price anywhere in Luxor or Cairo, it is basic but filling and if you’re on a budget it does great. Nothing is too much for the staff.
I normally stay in 3 to 5 star hotels but chose to stay in a Hostel for the experience and I found it was the best choice ever as the Boomerang/ Bob Marley hostel is a 5 star experience, I got to meet some great fellow travelers who had amazing stories to share on the roof top which is would not have been able to meet in the higher end hotels. I am glad I chose Mia and her homely place above any other place in Luxor.
If you are used to room service or a maid making you bed or cleaning your room, this is not the hostel for you, if you expect clean linen everyday or a towel service or a continental breakfast, pay 5 to 10 times more and stay in another hotel, for what you pay, you will get a reasonable clean room, clean shower and clean bedding, keep it that way during your stay and treat it as a room at home and you’ll fit right in.
and you get free Wi-Fi, it is not super fast, but its free and worked okay for me.
