Welcome to our hostel

Sit on the hostel's terrace under the warm sun with a coffee and watch the ships sail by along the Suez canal!, The hostel sits on the side of Al-Temsah Lake, and is within walking distance from the city centre. Ismailia is called the city of gardens and flowers. It lies midway between Port Said and Suez, around 115 km from Cairo on the west shore of Al-Temsah Lake. Ismailia is known for its beautiful landscape and plentiful orchards. Beaches spread on Al-Temsah Lake which is considered one of the largest lakes in Egypt where visitors enjoy sailing.

Note: We don't provide mixed accommodation at our hostels in Egypt; but a man and woman can stay in the same room if they are: Husband and wife or Father/Mother and their children or brothers and sisters.

Great value and great view over Timsah lake. The only problem was the request of a reservatipn printout, which took some effort.

The hostel has an amazing view on the lake, with facilities to relax outside and enjoy the calmness. The price is unbeatable for the service provided. Rooms are clean, bathroom small but absolutely enough especially considering its a hostel. Staff is very friendly. I would just suggest to fix the description on their websites as National ID is not enough. You need your passport with visa to be able to stya at the hostel as it is a governmental facility :)
