The high-ceilinged, colour-saturated rooms at this old-school hostel are exceedingly simple but brim with old-fashioned character. All share toilets but air-con rooms have shower cubicles, and some now come with satellite TV. Owner Hisham is a fount of knowledge on all things Cairo, and when arranging tours only uses drivers who don't do 'shopping' stops.
There’s a teensy shared kitchen too and good long-stay rates.
