NileGuide Expert tip:
If travelling as part of a larger crowd, ask about the special group prices.
Despite being one of the city's newest hostels, this hostel has been showered with honours and enjoys its reputation as a place to party. It's a huge building – the property currently sleeps 108 – but guests can still enjoy a modicum of privacy thanks to the spacious dorms and stylishly designed toilet and bathroom facilities positioned on every floor. In-house service includes free towels, linen and lockers, and free internet and Wi-Fi. Breakfast is complimentary, and there's a large fully equipped kitchen at guests' disposal. Movie shows and parties take place most nights in the funky lounge.
