Double Room · Private Bathroom

Love sharing your memories but not your bathroom? For the extra privacy, our private double rooms come with an en-suite bathroom, bed sizes are large in a twin-bed arrangement, a wardrobe, linen, towels, free WiFi and one even with a balcony and view! - Enjoy.

Double Room · Shared Bathroom

Want to have privacy sleeping but don’t mind sharing those showers? Then our double rooms with shared bathrooms are just the right thing for you. Catch the one with the balcony and lovely view and you’ll have a splendid experience. The rooms come with large comfy beds in twin arrangement, a wardrobe, linen, towels and free WiFi.

Triple Room · Shared Bathroom

You’re a small group of friends on a budget and need a comfy place to use as base heading out to the city? Then the triple room with shared bathroom should be just about right. Bathroom is across the door and the room offers a wardrobe, linen, towels and free WiFi.

6-Bed Dorm · Shared Bathroom

Hello backpackers, international trotters and like-minded travel buddies. Here comes our 6-bunk bed dorm where each bed has a curtain and the room a small separation for more privacy. You’ll have all you need: secured lockers with power outlets inside, your own reading lamp and international power outlet at the bed, linen, towels, free WiFi, a shared bathroom and a balcony right across the hallway. (many features are currently added)

Kitchen · Connect

Yes indeed. You’ve read that well. We have a fully equipped kitchen. Get behind the stove or for those less ambitious ones among us: use the microwave. Connect to fellow hungry travel companions over a social night, when in need of change, or when homesickness kicked in craving for that one dish. There’s a leftover shelf and a market for fresh veggies just around.

Balcony · Experience

Balconies just have that special feeling, be it at breakfast, watching the street during the day or life calming down at night. Put your feet up, and experience that city feeling of Cairo.

Living Rooms · Share

What else is there after a long day wandering through the city then to unwind on a comfy couch, relishing the visual pun the orange evening-sun exposes on the urban setting?! Share that peace and stories you collected of the city with others relaxing here. And if you need new energy, grab a coffee in the kitchen, for free, any time – sharing is caring.
