about... us.

All you ever wanted to know.

Who We Are?

We are a hostel with difference in the heart of Cairo:
modern, social, healthy and open to anyone experiencing Cairo.

Our mission is to provide accommodations with simple, modern design, a sociable atmosphere and an unbeatable location with a view towards the Nile and the City at affordable prices.
Everybody from solo backpackers to families and business travelers is welcome to connect, experience and share adventures, travels, creativity, company and a safe place to dream.
Paying tribute to the love for our city, Madina [arabic: city] Hostel is all about Cairo. Our Cairo. The city is in our veins, we live and breathe it. Every day. If you ask us about the secret to a good time in Cairo? It’s all in the daily-life details. Let us share them with you and explore them together creating memories and forging friendships that continue far past our doors.

The Hostel has private rooms and dorms for 21 guests, the first and only community kitchen in a Cairo Downtown hostel, 2 lounge areas and a balcony, free Wi-Fi for all and real plants. It features simple handmade furniture produced by wonderfully talented Egyptian craftsmen and art created by equally talented local experimenters. By showcasing their work we aim to introduce travelers to the local art scene, while supporting craftwo*men and artists by selling their work.
In walking distance to restaurants, cafes, bars, public transport, the Nile, Tahrir Square and the Egyptian Museum it is the perfect base to explore the city.

We look forward to helping you plan your adventure, or equally sharing stories about them over a coffee.

At Madina Hostel, everybody is welcome.
From solo backpackers coming for leisure or study, to families and business travelers - all are invited to share the sacred space of sleep and travel together.

Fall 2019 - moving forward.
