The hostel has been warmly recommended by most major guidebooks, including Lonely Planet, Le guide de Routerd and more.
This well-positioned hostel is relaxed and easy-going, with a great atmosphere and friendly staff that make you feel at home.
From the moment you walk into the lobby you sense the laid-back, welcoming vibe of MERAMEES hostel Little touches like fresh flowers, books, CDs and casual sofas in the lobby help make it feel like you're dropping by to see friends at home rather than checking into a hotel.
The casual majlis (meeting room) off the lobby where breakfast is served makes a good place to hang out after a hot day's sightseeing.
The rooms themselves have high ceilings, wooden floorboards, large windows and French doors leading onto balconies, and there are shared bathrooms and rooms with own bathrooms and toilets apart from the dorm room. Helpful stuff gives his guests plenty of advice about visiting Cairo and other parts of Egypt . The Meramees is certainly one of the more friendly options around down town.
