Poor, even for a hostel

Posted Jul 21, 2013
Pros: none
Cons: most of it
Location: downbeat poorish area. We should have been alerted by the taxi driver's attitude!
We were on the top floor, up 75 stairs at an angle of 75 degrees! We had to climb over builders who clearly were annoyed. The room was dirty and we decided to skip breakfast and eat elsewhere

Wasn't the worst place I'd ever stayed, but doesn't have much to recommend it.

the worst hotel I ever stay at anywhere in the world. The room does not match what I seen in the picture from the internet.

Don't do it

Posted Jun 13, 2011 on Hotels.com
Smallest rooms you can imagine- more like a jail cell, no windows that open, no air. Sooo miserable. Waaaaay overpriced- this doesn't even rate as a crappy hostel.

Do yourself a favor, avoid the sphinxter.

Posted Nov 17, 2010
We walked in the lobby of the Sphinx, and immediately a sinister air shrouded around us. We demanded to examine the room before we commit to spending our extended weekend there. After climbing the vertical staircases, we arrived at our room where we could see the complete lack of care for the place. The sheets/pillow cases had hairs/dirt on them, and if that wasn't enough, pulling off the bed-sheet revealed a flourishing bed bug infestation. Needless to say, we left the Sphinx shortly after we arrived. They also have a completely horrible cancellation policy. If you don't stay there, they'll charge you for two nights.
