The Best Hostels in Luxor for Budget Travellers

The Best Hostels in Luxor for Budget Travellers Luxor, Egypt
Luxor is a city on the east bank of the Nile River in southern Egypt. It’s on the site of ancient Thebes, the pharaohs' capital at the height of their power, during the 16th–11th centuries B.C. Thebes' wealth and power, legendary in antiquity, began to lure Western travelers from the end of the 18th century. Depending on the political situation, today's traveler might be alone at the sights, or be surrounded by coachloads of tourists from around the world. Whichever it is, a little planning will help you get the most from the magic of Thebes. Today’s city surrounds 2 huge, surviving ancient monuments: graceful Luxor Temple and Karnak Temple, a mile north. The royal tombs of the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens are on the river's west bank. Luxor is often called the world's greatest open-air museum, but that comes nowhere near describing this extraordinary place. Nothing in the world compares to the scale and grandeur of the monuments that have survived from ancient Thebes. The setting is breathtakingly beautiful, the Nile flowing between the modern city and west-bank necropolis, backed by the enigmatic Theban escarpment. Luxor has plenty to offer any tourist and these hostels provide an excellent base for exploring the area.
