Excellent hostel with great staff in a fantastic location. I only wish that there was a bar / somewhere to buy chilled drinks in the hostel as the roof is a perfect spot for it and it would help to create a social atmosphere between different guests.

You should have asked us!! There's a drinks store right next to our building :) This time you missed out on your chilled beer on our lovely rooftop while enjoying the evening breeze, the next time we will make sure you get to enjoy this moment :) Thanks a lot for your nice review.

Mahmoud at the hostel is particularly friendly and helpful. He helped with everything from exchanging currency, giving directions and advice on where to go as well as the much needed impromptu Arabic lessons. I really loved how personable and helpful her was. Hostel is great, right in middle of super busy interesting location. Elevator is from 1874 quite the historic site itself. There are convenience stores right next to hostel for everything as water and munchies.

The staff were very friendly and the rooftop garden is a nice place to escape to after a long day on Cairo streets. The transport from the airport was very helpful even though my baggage was delayed and the driver had to wait for over an hour for me at arrivals. The single room shared bathroom is very small but adequate for the price. There were a few needed improvements like adding a refrigerator in the kitchen and the stove was not working properly during my stay .

Most likely one of the best tips to have a nice stay in Cairo for a low price and in a nice place, moreover since the price have gone higher in the city for everything. The staff is really nice and young, ready to help you. The taxi from the airport is very appreciable, as well as the transportation to Ghiza or louxor and Assouan, in which they take a friendly commission. the atmosphere there is really cool as a youth hostel but much better. Most important, the place is well situated.

Dahab Hostel is a really nice hostel. Located on the seventh floor you have both a really cool view over downtown cairo and nice cool breezes in the night. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The location is perfect and you have everything you need in the same street. A perfect place for couples or people travelling alone! I stayed for two and a half weeks and have had a purely good experience here.
