The Canadian Hostel: "Great Location" Egypt Hotel Tip by gallivanting1

Egypt Hotels: 446 reviews and 525 photos

The location of this hostel just can't be beat. Everything you need is within walking distance and if you can't walk to it then the Metro station is across the street. The staff are very friendly and can arrange for all sorts of tours. They offer free rides to the Giza Plateau and I've found that after checking out tours and trips with various travel agents they can usually give me an even better price.

Unique Qualities: Location, location, location. Not a modern building by any stretch of the imagination and being in downtown Cairo the traffic noise can get quite loud. If you have problems sleeping then I would suggest bringing earplugs. If you have any questions or problems talk to the manager - Jimmy. He is more than accomodating and I swear the guy never sleeps. Also, breakfast is included in the price of your accommodation.

Address: 5 Talaat Harb Street, Cairo, Egypt
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
