Eslam and his team did everything to make our stay at Freedom Hostel enjoyable and comfortable. The cost was a bargain, the WiFi was very fast (it supported both my wife and I as we streamed online classes), the rooms and sheets were clean, and the service was wonderful. Breakfast was very filling as well. The staff was even kind enough to upgrade our room. We will certainly be checking in again the next time we stay in Cairo.

Freedom hostel was a lot more special than a usual hostel. Fathi was amazing and very hospitable. He was always friendly, happy, and super helpful. The breakfast there is also amazing. Even better than some other nearby restaurants.
