Great place to stay
Great place to stay, far exceeded my expectations, close to all the important places including downtown, easy to access, secure, reliable, and only metres away from all the necessary amenities including the metro, restaurants, shopping etc. The staff (Salah, Hamdi, Gad and all the others) and the owner (Mr Robert) go out of their way here to accomodate guests, and really make you feel at home. It is both incredibly affordable and includes everything you will need to have a comfortable stay. I highly encourage anyone travelling solo or with a small group to consider staying at City Hostel.

Value for money
They have just recently renovated the place so I would said they really care about their customer and is definitely value for money, this makes me to always back to them. Besides, cleanliness is tip top.. The woman who do the cleaning will check and clean the shared bathroom/toilet most of the time after you use the toilet to make sure is clean and dry all the time.
