I loved staying at Wake Up! Cairo. Before going, we read some of the reviews about poor service but we didn't experience anything like that at all. Upon arrival, we received tea and grapes. Then, my friend and I were actually shocked at how clean the rooms were especially because the state of the rest of the building outside of...

Clean rooms, helpful staff available 24/7 (especially the driver, Mohamed), hot showers, great views and a good location in central Cairo.

The tower it is located in is dirty and dilapidated, and the...

Don't underestimate the importance of this. 2. The showers are awesome - great if you've just come from bushcamping in the desert. 3. Bathrooms cleaned several times daily and...

Just returned (Jan'12) from 2 weeks in Cairo & Luxor. "Wake Up" Hostel excellent value for price, location, cleanliness & staff helpfulness. Cairo quite safe & restful. Problems in Luxor though: terrible "first class" overnight Cairo-Luxor train..filthy, rickety, unheated. Fly instead. Book while there, much cheaper.Luxor terribly commercialised, full of hustle-hassel. Make it a one day turnaround, or 1 night...
