You are looking for hostel in Egypt, it is not Europe, so it is a simple place but with a great atmosphere and lovely staff. They'll help you in everything. an important point, the hostel is very clean.

Very nice hostel in downtown Cairo. The staff amazing and very welcoming. Atmosphere and ambiance were exceptional. Cleanliness was sufficient based on stays in countries within Europe, but good for what I feel is standard for the area. I would definitely stay again if in the area, especially if I was staying in the area for an extended period of time

I had an amazing time in Cairo and Dahab hostel helped make it happen! Private room with a fan was nice and efficient and the atmosphere was great! Everyone is easy going and relaxed and the staff are all amazing and willing to help with anything that you need. If you want to do any traveling around Egypt they were more than willing to help with anything. Centrally located next to the Egyptian museum and Tahrir square, everything was within walking distance! Everything was great! Thanks!

The room and bath are both impeccably clean, which to me is the most important consideration. Staff are friendly and helpful and the rooftop garden setting is rather charming. Like all Egypt's budget hotels, it is not for people who imagine they can get international five-star standards for a tenth of big hotel prices. Within its budget class, it is a standout.

My prefered accomodation whenever I'm in Cairo. Really good situated, safe, chill out atmosphere. Apart from the kitchen that is rather poor equiped to cook, all the others is just fine. And the guys of the reception are simply THE BEST!!

Over all great hostel and would be the first place i stay if I visit cairo again. Kitchen could be more user friendly. But really great staff and comfortable environment, and it is a real oasis away from the busy streets. The airport transfer was fantastic too.

We already made some small effective improvements at the kitchen. We hope you like it if you see it again :)

Terrible staff. Not great location. Wifi doesn't work in the rooms. Disgusting showers/toilets. Wouldn't go back.

Dahab Hostel in perfect Downtown location is a nice designed rooftop and it is like a garden over the dusty and loud city. You can chill there and have a talk with the nice and helpfull staff. The atmosphere was always nice and you can always find anybody who is willing to go to a cafe with you or just to explore the city. The rooms are quite small but they are suficcient for a normal traveller stay. The Hostel is cleaned every day by the staff. From the Hostel is the whole City easily reached
