NASBOUL I enjoyed mi stay in Regent house. The managers are really easy going and welcoming. They organized a trip to us in the desert, it was beautiful, the people was very kind in the hotel in the desert, I really enjoyed my trip. It is really interetsting to book with them because the prices are very competitive.

katiegumbo Not my favorite place (although I met great fellow travellers there). First off, they told me there were no beds in the dormitory and put me in a more expensive single room, but it turns out that there were plenty of empty beds. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt of perhaps not wanting to put a single woman in a room with two men for moral reasons. But whatever you do, DO NOT book a tour through them. The itinerary they told us was completely different from what we got, and we had to fight their company tooth and nail to get what we'd paid for. In every city, something got majorly messed up (they tried to scrap whole days or half days from our itinerary several times during the 1-week trip), and the guys in each city tried to blame the guys in another town and pass the buck. If we hadn't been so persistent in telling them we wouldn't settle for less, we wouldn't have gotten half of what we had paid for.

Bonallack I would unreservedly recommend this hostel to anyone who wants budget accommodation in Cairo. The rate was so reasonable I was expecting something pretty low-grade. In fact the rooms and facilities are clean and pleasant, the internet free, and (biggest plus) the staff are friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. A great place to stay. John Bonallack PS, the Travellerspoint booking system was simple and hassle-free. Thanks.
aliciavana All four guys that worked there were extremely nice, honest, hilarious and helpful. They saved our lives when I got extremely sick when it came time to fly back to Italy. We had went from the Sinai Peninsula to the airport back in Cairo and I couldn't board the plane therefore returning back to their hotel unexpectedly at 3 in the morning. When my boyfriend and I arrived, we looked at each other and laughed as they were surprised to see us back when we had left a week ago onto our next journey. We asked if they had any rooms we could stay in for a couple days until we sorted out our next flight out and they happily set up a room for us and said stay as long as you like and pay us whenever. Before we arrived we knew they would welcome us back and they even helped us out with my sickness and gave us a free ride back to the airport since we didn't set one up prior to our arrival. They were amazing and I cant thank them enough. If you guys read this...Max and Alicia miss you!! Free tea, breakfast and conversations and really nice rooms. I would not stay anywhere else. Location is great we walked everywhere...museum and talbot square (i think its called), and short cab rides to coptic/islamic cairo. STAY HERE.

Milven One Season hostel is located in the heart of Cairo, minutes from Tahrir square. It's perfectly located for most of Cairo's attractions. The hostel itself is cozy, and the staff - especially Mohamed, Mustafa, and Mido - were very welcoming. They also arranged a tour of Upper Egypt for us at a great price. After a long day wandering around Cairo, we always felt relieved to be back here.

karin_bas When we (two Ladies) first arrived we were shocked, even we know Cairo quite well. The street looks horrible and the pick up service from the airport didnt work. But after the first impression was gone it was not so bad. The Hostel is clean, staff is friendly and the location in the middle of real life. (the buildingsite right next to the hostel will be gone soon - I hope for all who stay there after me. I can recommend it - I stayed alone for a week after my friend left, but I advice all girls to dress properly and ask for companionship when being out in the dark. Nothing happens, but alone in the night as Lady its not too comfortable. I met a mixture of Pakistani, French and Egyptian people in the hostel. Be careful when you book a room ensuite, the staff likes to change you into a room with shared bathroom! When you insist its ok! Have fun!

hfnorm The good : Great location. Friendly staff....some with very good sense of humour. Large room with good shower, air con and view. The not so good : A bit pushy on their own tours. They'd have you organised right down to where you wipe your bottom in Aswan if they could. Stand firm! 8 o'clock breakfast sometimes not available till 9 o'clock. Decor a bit tired in places. Overall : This was the only place we stayed in Cairo so can't compare with others but I'm guessing that it's the same as or better than most in this price range. Yes, we would stay here again.
