Sharm El Sheikh Hostel

Hostel Sharm El Sheikh

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

The hostel is located only 10 minutes from the city centre. At the entrance is a big reception, gardens on your right, playgrounds on your left . Rooms in the hostel's 2 floor typically have 2-3 beds. When you open your window in the morning above Om Elsayed hill, feel the warmth of the sun with a view over the city center & Aqapa gulf!, You are in the city of peace, 500 km from Cairo, 336 km from Suez, 12 km from Ras Mohammed. Sharm El Sheikh lies on the Aqaba gulf, an international summer and winter resort preferred by vacationers for experiencing fishing, swimming, diving and relaxing.

Ras Mohamed: a paradise which God endowed with the most gorgeous formations of coral reefs and thousand species of rare fish, distinct marine life, warm water springs, wild animals, birds and mangrove trees. It is renowned as the best diving area in the world since it includes the most exquisite coral reefs and rare colored fish. It was recently declared a National Park.

Two different ferry services link Sharm Al Sheikh and Hurghada (where we have another hostel). A fast ferry links the towns in 1 hour. A slower ferry make the trip in around 3 hours. Both services permit travellers to take the one-way journey or a round trip cruise on the Red Sea.

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.

Over all it was a good stay. - I however recommend they should find a solution for the mosquitoes problem they have. - Also the receptionist should answer the incoming phone calls, as before my arrival I tried hard and on multiple occasions to get in touch with them to know the check-in time, so I kept calling / ringing ( their phone ) but NO one answers their phone. So please answer people's incoming phone calls!. - So often the reception desk remains unattended / No receptionist !!

The people at reception don't understand English (they had to get someone on the phone for me). The hostel is known as a Egyptians only hostel. The communal sanitary is just disgusting.
