2   Functional but not great Positive -- Airport pickup was fine, the 24-hour reception was useful, the place is pretty clean, the water is hot, the location is good, and the staff were helpful with things like restaurant recommendations and directions to the train station. The women who work in the morning were particularly nice. Breakfast was fine, and the common room is a good place to hang out. Negative -- I can't speak for the private rooms, but the dorm room was an unpleasant place. The air conditioner smells like mildew, but it's a necessary evil. The staff regularly spray the whole room (mattresses, bed frames) with RAID insecticide to keep bedbugs at bay, making the air practically unbreathable for days at a time. The main staff person, Peter, is helpful but in a very condescending sort of way, and he doesn't listen well. Overall, I would not return here, I don't recommend other travelers stay there, and I don't understand why the hostel has such high reviews. There are much better options for the same price.  ()
5   A clean fun and friendly budget backpackers hostel After spending more than a week in Egypt (Sinai and Cairo) staying in a mixed-bag of budget friendly hostels, I wasn't sure what to expect from the Freedom Hostel. However upon arrival it became very clear that this one was a little bit special. Whether it was the friendly owner (who didn't once try to sell a tour/excursion -- although they are available if you ask) or the spotless rooms and common area, the Freedom Hostel definitely stood out from the rest. The hostel is up to and above the standards of many western hostels (i've stayed in almost 100) and the atmosphere is sociable and friendly yet chilled at the same time. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, the showers were always piping and even the breakfast wasn't bad (an unusual feat). A top hostel in a top city -- Egypt is awesome.  , age 24, Ireland ()
5   Excellent place to stay Excellent place to stay. Had previously stayed at another hostel where the owner was rude and unprofessional and my passport and purse went missing from my locker inexplicably. Then I moved to Freedom Hostel which was a real relief. The owner of Freedom Hostel was particularly helpful and assuring at a very stressful time and it made my stay in Cairo while I dealt with the difficulties of replacing my passport and bank cards a lot easier. The hostel itself is very clean and it has shower cubicles (which is rare in Cairo).  ()
