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.


I was satisfied with the accommodation and facilities.

Erg vriendelijke mensen. Kamer waar ik in verbleef was klein maar wel van alle gemakken voorzien. Wifi was gratis en goed. Dit Hotel ligt niet in Dubai maar in Sarjah. Ongeveer 20 minuten van vliegveld en centrum met taxi. Hotel is goedkoop maar reken op ongeveer 20 euro extra voor taxi kosten. Busstation op 10 minuten lopen. Die brengt je ook naar Dubai in ongeveer 30-40 minuten. Bustrip kost ongeveer 2,50. Heb via hotel bij aankomst dessertsafari geboekt. Ben twee dagen gebleven.

For us the location was perfect, as we stayed there on the way from Dubai to Khasab (in Oman). So Sharjah, where this hotel is located is just on the way. Hotel is right in the city centre, surrounded by lots of shops, restaurants, convinient stores. We had no time to look around, as we arrived late at night and left at 6am. Staff was super friendly and helpful, there was free wifi, airconditioner, hot shower, room was quiet, en suite. It's a "dry" state, alcohol is forbidden there. We liked it.
