Overall, I enjoyed my stay and would probably recommend it to anyone traveling to the area. However, this isn't actually a hostel; it's a hotel. And it's not located in Dubai; it's located in Sharjah. Sharjah is a different Emirate, about an hour away from downtown Dubai. Ultimately, it wasn't so bad to stay outside of Dubai, because it's much cheaper, but just be warned that you'll have to deal with the Sharjah/Dubai traffic.
Not very near to the airport but with a taxi its less than 20$ to get there with a taxi. Personal is nice.
Mosque outside hotel very loud calls to prayer in the morning. Not a hostel more of a hotel don't know why it is on hostel world. The staff were very very friendly and helpful. Quite good value for money although is not in dubai so had to get taxi/metro into dubai.
