Yes, the mosque 50 metres from your tent is hard work at 4:45am ;-)
I liked the place, but after 3 nights the lack of shade in 43 degree heat and the long distance into town mean't I moved to the Youth Hostel. Rooms are 35 SP a night (6 euros ) pp with air con, or you can camp for 10SP pp (1.4 Euros) They have the shady space for it, and it is in a quiet place in the centre of town (Khartoum 2).
Two people in a room there was cheaper than camping with no facilities at the Blue Nile. If the Blue Nile was free it would have some virtues.
For a treat make sure you go to the Ozone Cafe, lovely!
Recap: THE BEST PLACE BY FAR IS THE YOUTH HOSTEL IN KHARTOUM 2 FOR EITHER CAMPING OR A CHEAP CLEAN ROOM WITH AIR CON ETC.
