            Cecillia hostel is the simply the best hostel downtown made foe budget travellers. The description and the pictures that you see on the internet is what you will see on your arrival. Honestly it is the cheapest but most honest and fair hostel in my opinion in downtown cairo. It is safe and fun. I personally loved the terace, in the morning during breakfest amd at night the breeze and tv was an amazing experience.

            If there was something outstanding that was negative that happend during my stay i would write it here, but seriously i enjoyed this hostel. I advise it to everyone.

            Cleanliness should be better No breakfast given although they stated that it's bed and breakfast hostel.

            Nearby to city centre and it can be excellent if direct attention to cleaning of room specialy from insects like ants

            Location of the hotel is conveniently in the center of the country, making it safe too and you can also get food from nearby restaurants at any time and close to transportation can be accessed on the subway after two minutes of walking you can also access to the Egyptian Museum in five minutes to walk and be a team work to serve you 24 hours a day and feel ifeel they are my friends and also the rooms are clean and the place well and I'll keep in touch with them all and I would like to book at this hotel again when i go to Egypt again .

            When I arrive in Cairo, I had hardly any plans about what I would be doing-- I generally make it up as I go along. The staff helped me to organise three day trips to the Pyramids and Saqqara, Alexandria, and around Cairo itself. They employ a quality tour agency and the best drivers/guides for a very reasonable rate. Cecilia staff also payed me every possible courtesy and did their very utmost to ensure my comfort and happiness. I have never had better service at any place of accomodation.

            I honestly can't think of a single thing.

            The staff were very friendly and provided a great aptmoshpere, the rooms and bathroom were very clean and tidy, breakfast came quickly when requested and the internet worked great. The location was central and excellent for seeing what Cairo has to offer. Ten out of ten! :)

            No problems, everything was perfect.

            I liked in this hostel only lovely big balcony for having breakfast and rest.

            When i came they did not change bed linen for me after last guest, everywhere i found long black hairs: in shower, in bed. For 5 days i have been in that hostel noone came to change rubbish bin. Girl on reception does not speak english at all and was mean and rude with me. And it was too difficult to close door with key, because catches are so old there. Hostel is located on 6th floor. And when i came man on reception said that lift was not working but they reaiping and it will work in 2 days. But for all 5 days i had to use stairs because all this time they were still repairing it. Every morning i woke up at 8 when they started to serve breakfast, because pipes in my room made so awful sound every time they switched on water in next room to me.
