I would advise not to stay here especially if you are to get up early for the trip to Abu Simbel in the morning. There is a nightclub on the top floor that is open all night and into the morning. It is very loud. I stay in hostels all the time so I am used to the odd noise now and again but this was just too much. On the good side was the price and you get a room with your own bathroom.
