PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE REQUESTING TO SURF MY COUCH... I live in North Cairo,Hada'iq al Qubbah-17 minutes from down town by Metro-, My home is 5 minutes walking to the Metro -theSubway-(takes you anywhere in cairo&Giza) and 30 minutes by car from airport (with no traffic jams):)...a lot of buses around but I think you can't use them in rush hours. I live with my family -their opinion about whom we are going to host is essentially - (4)maybe sometimes we're(10)according to the occasions in my family. We just ask you be a good guest. :-) Please do not be offended if we are not able to go out to dinner or lunch with you. But we would love learn something about the place you are from, especially if it is a foreign country. Part of the reason why I love CS, especially for my family, is because they get to see the world through you. Share a story or custom/tradition or maybe cook something from your country. :-) Just a way to learn more about you and where you come from. No pets! No Smoking! No Alcohol!

IMPORTANT: Despite the revolution, Egypt is a pretty safe country to travel in, but just as in any developing country you should be street smart. If you are afraid of traveling to Egypt for fears of safety, it's important to remember a few things: (1) Foreigners generally are not the targets of the violence. The isolated exception was during a brief period at the height of the revolution where Mubarak thugs attacked journalists. On a whole, Egyptians love foreigners and we recognize that tourism is an important source of our economy. (2) Egyptians are not violent people. It's safer to walk around the streets of Cairo at night than most American cities. Just be smart to avoid the occasional petty crime and you'll be fine. (3) Sexual harassment can be an issue for girls, so please respect the culture here by making sure not to wear revealing clothing that shows bare shoulders, cleavage or legs above your knee. VERY IMPORTANT: Please include the word "Ecnoshianegra" in your message to me so I know that you have read my profile before requesting a couch :-) VERY IMPORTANT I WILL ASK YOU TO SHOW ME A VALID PASSPORT, AND I WILL WRITE DOWN YOUR PERSONAL DETAILS OR MAKE A PHOTO COPY OF IT AS A SECURITY MEASURE.
I have two spare double bedrooms in my (v spacious) apartment in Maadi. They will be available most of the year, except when I have my own visitors or am away travelling. Around 3-7 day stays preferable, though the super-nice are welcome for longer. Maadi is a residential suburb south of central Cairo. Guidebooks will tell you it is not the 'real' Cairo, and they are absolutely right. It's a green oasis of quiet streets with much (probably too much) catering to expats. It is, however, on the Metro line, which will take you to the Pyramids, Downtown and beyond. My place is about 8 minutes walk from the station. I have spare keys, lovely clean sheets, internet, fluffy towels, a beer fridge, lots of toilet roll and a part-time maid who irons my knickers. Indoor camping it ain't. I work full time (Sunday to Thursday) and am not an Egyptian (in case you haven't noticed) so - sorry - cannot be an expert guide and you will need to be relatively independent at least during the week. I will do my best for you, though. I am a dirty smoker (sorry, Mum), and I plan to acquire a cat. The spare bedrooms are smoke-free though (and I would like to keep them that way). No real preferences re surfers, bar a good command of English. Like any true Brit, I am a diehard monolinguist. Female solo travellers are especially welcome to get in touch.
my guest be not sharing the same sleeping but this will be after few month that because i change my flat now hi iam sayed aly iam chemist engineer in egypt and like to travel and knew on new friends so i dont have mind to host any one must be good and kind person and like smile as meI am available for coffee and drinks,however I can host someone in my house cuz I have a place,. I love my country very much and the people are amazing, so I would love to show all who are interested in knowing my country, all the beautiful places and will introduce them to my culture. I Work so will take people in tours in my weekends and that is Fridays and Saturdays. I have a car so transportation will be easy. Lots of things are to be done in Egypt, we can also go travel outside Cairo to so many different and beautiful places like sharm el sheikh, Alexandria, Nwiba, Hurghada and in winter we can go to Luxor and Aswan. .
Right a moment, i have a bed room with 2 beds and one mattress. Don't know yet when my parents gonna come back to home. i can host in these days until i can say "not Available now". Well my house is about 30 minutes by train to Downtown, but in my place you can buy anything you need. all are available. Feel free of course to use everything in my home. but i think you have to bring your own food cuz me and brother always order delivery because we used to eat from mom's !! So i think this is it till now.
Small room with a comfortable single bed in my medium sized 2 bedroom townhouse in the suburb of Richmond. We are'nt very close to everything - shops, pubs, restaurants and public transport (it's a 30 minute tram or train ride into the city-centre), but the appartment in a quite district above Al-Moquattam Hights. Feel free to use the kitchen while you are here, but you will have to buy your own food. Our place would be a great base to explore the ancient Cairo and Recent cairo also.
Ahoy dossers. There is a spare mattress on the floor in an unused lounge room...ready to go. I live in Zamalek which is an island in the middle of the Nile. 20 minute walk to the museum (or 5EGP less than $1 in a cab....but I understand this is a site for tight arses). Loads of cool restaurants and a few bars about. I've got a kitchen but don't really use it myself. Food is cheap here and EVERYONE delivers (although much more fun to get out there for a laugh.)

big room with a comfortable king size bed in my medium sized 3 bedroom townhouse in the suburb of Giza. We are very close to everything - shops, pubs, restaurants and public transport (it's a 10 minute into the city-centre). Feel free to use the kitchen while you are here, but you will have to buy your own food. Our place would be a great base to explore both Giza and Cairo..I can provide transportation and Maid service too for a small fee..
e.g. Small room with a comfortable single bed in my medium sized 3 bedroom townhouse in the suburb of Richmond. We are very close to everything - shops, pubs, restaurants and public transport (it's a 7 minute tram or train ride into the city-centre). Feel free to use the kitchen while you are here, but you will have to buy your own food. Our place would be a great base to explore both Melbourne and Victoria.
Small room with no furniture in my small sized 2 bedroom flat in the downtown area of Cairo. We are very close to everything - shops, pubs, restaurants and public transport (it's a 5 minute metro ride into the city-center). Feel free to use the kitchen while you are here, but you will have to buy your own food. Our place would be a great base to explore Cairo. No kids, alcohol or pets allowed in the house.
