From the first moments in the Australian Hostel you'll feel like your back home with friends. Comfy common area, generously sized beds and rooms (we took a private) and staff that don't serve you but rather, share your travel experience. Go drinking and bowling with them (great fun), hang out and read / blog, and make use of their extensive knowledge of Cairo. All advice is accurate and free of are the smiles.

Thankyou / Shaukrn to all the guys (and chick) for their time and help. We will be staying here again at least twice whilst in Egypt and could easily choose to be here for a lot longer.

Cheers and keep rockin' to Eslam, Achmed, Mustafa, Breita and Erin....we miss you guys already.

Pretty good hostel. I liked the spaciousness of the rooms and the free wi-fi especially. The staff was very helpful and became friends during my short stay. We would watch football games together at night in the common room. If you stay here make sure you ask for a room that is not on the side of the main street. The noise will keep you up all night.

Egypt is known to travelers as a place of lots of overpricing with a need for strong negotiation...

The Great Pyramids

After a fabulous breakfast at our hotel we started driving out to the edge of Cairo to see the Great Pyramids of Giza. I always pictured the pyramids being way out in the desert, but they suddenly appear out of the traffic haze right at the edge of town. There seemed to be a bigger crowd than usual today, because t...

Walk like an Egyptian (although we didn't!)

Unfortunately Maureen awoke the day we had to leave Athens with severe stomach cramps and at one stage I thought we would be lucky to be able to leave. Fortunately for us we found a good English speaking chemist who was able to supply us with enough medication to get her normal enough to get to the airport. When we arrived, at the train station,...
