Bob Marley Peace Hotel
Ranked #2 of 41 Speciality Lodging in Luxor
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 September 2014

The hostel is exactly what a backpacker needs. Confurtable rooms and place with very good breakfast and amazing staff. After being in egypt for nearly a month this is definitely the bedt place i stayed in the country. Also a good hang out place, and that isnt easy to find in egypt nowadays. I absolutely recommend the hostel and hopefully they will open more around the world :)
Ps: i normally too lazy to use or write on tripadvisor but this place literally deserve it. Well done!

I loved this place! Also known as Boomerang, this is a great place for backpackers and those on a budget. The hotel and our room was very clean. And oh man, we loved our AC in our room; I actually had to turn it off in the middle if the night because it got so cold! :) A real treat in the middle of an Egyptian summer.
The owner, who also maned the reception, was such a lovely man. He gave us a hand drawn map of the local area which included atms, temples, exchange places, train station, and my favourite, McDonald's! Haha! He also helped us our with booking an awesome cheap day tour of the Valley of the Kings (just a word of advice, its super cheap, so tip the tour guide, he really made the tour informative and enjoyable). Also, he helped booked us a hot air balloon ride over Luxor! In all, this hotel really contributed to some really unforgettable and happy memories.
The other staff was so lovely; very polite and ready to help out; extra points to them for calling me 'My lady'! <3 :D
Breakfast was enjoyable and they even made me scrambled eggs.
Oh and the roof, just super cool! Nice Arabic style couches, a hammock, lounge chairs, and even an AC! You can order shisha and beer from here too!
In all, the Bob Marley Peace Hotel made walking up four flights of stairs to our room worth it! Just stay here, you won't regret it.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling on a shoestring you can't beat it. The hotel staff are next to none very helpful in everyway. Stuart and Amr will do anything for you. The hotel is immaculately clean. It is central on the East Bank to travel around town. The roof terrace is so peaceful. Stuart and Amr are only too happy to arrange day trips for you at the best possible prices. I can't add much more as some of the comments made before mine say it all :-D See you soon everyone take care and say Hello to Mohamed in the shop for me

HI, Thanks for reviewing the hotel. I am very happy to read that you liked it and that the staff were helpful.
It is great to get a review from someone who lives in Egypt and is used to the lower standards, but then sees our place and knows that we lift the bar on that standard.

We hope to see you again

I went to Bob Marley Peace to find other travellers to share my days in Luxor with and the hostel didn't disappoint. There is a fantastic roof terrace which serves beer and shisha to the ottoman style floor cushions, tables and chairs, sun-loungers or hammocks. Alternatively you can join Amr and Stewart's banter in reception or enjoy a huge breakfast while meeting other guests.

The rooms are all spacious, well-decorated and immaculate. The standard is easily equivalent to any four star hotel that I have stayed in, but at a fraction of the price.

The staff are great and will help you to learn how to manage if you are not used to travelling in a third world country and can give you tips on how to save money (the kosheree is definitely the way to go). I also went on some of the excursions organised by the hostel; the hot air balloon, faluka and tour of the west bank. I'd recommend the first two under any circumstances. The west bank tour doesn't take in all the sites but may be the best option if you don't want to rent a private car / cycle / walk in 45º heat.

I saw this hotel and I had direct a good feeling. I were in a very nice hotel "Bob Marley Peace Hotel" with a very helpful and professional and very honest stuff. This hotel was very clean: the roof, the rooms, the shower, the lobby - it looks as a really high stand hotel. Thank you very much for so much help. I will come again - 100% promised.

Room Tip: The Basic 8 Bed Mixed Dorm was very clean, safe and wonderful!

My friend and really enjoyed our stay at Bob Marley Peace Hotel in Luxor. It's conveniently located close to the train station (look out for the signs everywhere around the train station - very easy to find and locals know it well). The manager and staff are very friendly and welcoming: they helped us rent a couple of bikes for a day and arrange a sunset feluca ride on the Nile. The roof terrace with hammocks and shisha are awesome too!

Spent 4 nights in this hostel, conveniently located downtown. Entire hostel was very clean, staff very nice and helpful. We booked 2 trips (hot-air balloon, abydos/denderah temples). Nice rooftop, cool atmosphere. Easy to meet the other guests.

Breakfast is optional, it costs around 10 £EGP, and was good.

For such a price, I don't think you can find better deals (£EGP 70/room) in town.

Highly recommend it.

We appreciate your time in writing the review for us. We are really happy that you enjoyed your stay.
Breakfast is by far our most popular feature ( well except for the free WIFI) Breakfast is buffet style with eggs, pancakes and 3 different types of meat, 4 types of cheese yogurt, juice, toast. many jams etc and all the tea and coffee you can drink. And yes it is only 10 Egyptian pounds.

Again thank you for staying with us and we do hope to see you again.
