Ask for directions as its down a little side alley. They have a nice cafe down the street too. Very friendly and helpful.

Dina's is a great hostel right in the center of Cairo. I doubt you'd find a better hostel in Cairo. I will say, BRING BUG SPRAY! This is something that is no fault to the hostel but I left COVERED in mosquito bites.

Well located, right in the heart of downtown Cairo. Only a 15 minute walk to the Egyptian Museum and 10 minutes to the Metro. Also lots of shops and restaurant located close by. Friendly helpful, knowledgeable staff who are always willing to help. Excellent tours to the Pyramids, Bahariya Oasis & White Desert. Good clean rooms and bathrooms, comfortable common areas.

This place is a gem! Not only are there alot of travelers there, which I didn't find at any of the other hostels that I went to in Egypt, but it also seems to be a central hub for Egyptians. They have film screenings on Sundays with a large projector, such a great experience. Breakfast was lovely in the common room, the dorms were clean, bathrooms were good, and the staff were super helpful! I would highly recommend staying at Dina's Hostel while you are based in Cairo!

A very cool part of Cairo, Downtown has a different buzz about it and their are lots of eateries and authentic spots real Cairenes hang out. This is a great Hostel to meet interesting travellers from across the globe upto all sorts in Egypt. The hostel is in a beautiful building tucked away off the busy streets. Dina's has a gorgeous old world elevator, but it can be a bugger when it is broke as it is quite a haul up five flights of stairs despite their beauty. Not great for mobility.

Felt like home in the middle of Cairo; friendly and ever-helpful staff, clean and cosy, laid-back and cool atmosphere and all at reasonable prices. Plenty of tours available but never pushy about it too.

There are a lot of good and cheap hostels around downtown Cairo but this one stands out. The staff and owners are wonderfully helpful and efficient. The place is clean and pleasant but it is the staff that make it great.

I stayed here for nearly a week and was very happy with the place. The manager (Nana - she is also very pretty) was a real star and helped out in every way with taxis, tours, food, local guidance. The rooms were always very clean and comfortable with spotless bathrooms that had consistent hot water. Many travellers are staying here and its easy to meet new friends in the two common rooms. The elevator can be problematic but Nana took care of it quickly. Great Sudanese food in the alley!

This hostel is totally excellent - lovely vibe with plenty of fun people to meet and plan trips with. The staff are lovely people with a great sense of humour and happy to help you arrange reasonably-priced tours. The wifi is impressively reliable which was refreshing after staying other places! I also felt very happy leaving my laptop etc around as it felt v safe. I would definitely recommend Dina's and hope to come again. PS special thanks to Nana for fixing my phone :)
