      They do NOT pick you up from the airport. That was a lie. There is no free breakfast except for bread and coffee (sometimes). The hostel is on the 7th floor and there is no elevator. The AC does not work properly. There are thousands of mosquitoes sharing blood everywhere. Everyone smokes everywhere in the hostel. There is no toilet paper in the bathrooms. There is mold and dust everywhere. Do not stay here

      8月末にカイロへ飛び本宿にて白砂漠・黒砂漠ツアーにも参加させて頂きました。その日たまたま新月で星空いっぱいの下で朝日が昇る5時前まで星を眺めることができました。 私はカイロに来て10日間ほど泊まりその後にダハブへ行きましたが帰国前の最終日の夜は本宿にて最後の夜を過ごしました。 私の彼も私も本宿が居心地良すぎて、恋しくて最後の日はカイロをあと2.3日残しておけば良かったと言うほどに本宿のスタッフ,宿がとてもよかったです。 具体的に申しますと、レセプションの男性スタッフがとてもひょうきんな方で冗談が上手いというかとにかく面白い方です。私たちは長期滞在していましたがACなしで過ごしました。ファンが天井についており夜から朝にかけて涼しいのでお勧めします! 世界一周中の彼氏にサファリーホテルに泊まりたいからまた行こうと頼み込んでいる最中ですがいつになるか分かりません。笑 またいつかカイロへ行ったときには是非こちらの宿でお世話になろうと思っています。 アットホームな雰囲気!サファリーホテル。 是非ご利用ください😻 英語話せない日本人と少し英語の話せる彼氏のカップルでした!8月末から9月中旬までお世話になりました!
