Property Description

Dahab Hostel, Your Oasis in the City...

It has been open since 1998. It has been registered in all the major guidebooks and has consistently received positive reviews.

Dabab Hostel is centrally located in the heart of Downtown Cairo. It is just a 3-minute-walking distance to the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir Sq., and within easy reach to the main train and bus stations.

Dabab Hostel has its own special charm. It is a collection of whitewashed huts on the rooftop attempting to recreate the feel of Sinai beach camp in an unremittingly urban Downtown Cairo.

Once you get inside, you will definitely sense the totally laid-back, chilled out and cozy atmosphere. The outdoor garden area is just superb for lounging around and catching up with other travelers in the evening. The breeze is refreshing and the vibe is incontestable.

It is an ideal place for artistic travellers as well. Enjoy the fantastic reggae music played, laying back in the sun, smoking Shisha 'Water pipe' on the rooftop at the Bedwin corner.

Sit back & relax, plan your itineraries & catch up with your family & friends by logging onto our new optimized FREE WiFi Broadband Internet coverage for the entire hostel.

Our rooms are equipped withprivate facilities and A/C. We have single, double and private dorms available and there are 39 rooms in total.

Airport Pickup Service

Once you have made your booking, you will be contacted by a staff member to organize it with you. At the airport, you will find our representative waiting for you holding a sign of your name and Dahab hostel, after you finish passport checking and custom clearance.

    We've had a great stay at this Hostel. It's just a really nice concept: Small rooms but a lot of outdoor space. Yo can always find a spot to chill out on the rooftop. Also really nice to meet other travellers. Thanks to the staff and when coming back to Cairo, I will be staying here again! Cheers Cédric

    Dahab hostel was...amazing! We originally had an Airbnb while exploring (our first time in Cairo) and stumbled upon the hostel and figured we would go in and ask a question about how to spend our night. We ended up spending 2 hours there having a blast with the employees and some guests! We then transferred to the hostel for a night and they treated us great and made everything super easy. After we checked out, we were able to come back anytime when we needed anything. Showers were great too!

    Great staff who really care about their guests. They can arrange airport pick up and tours at reasonable prices. On premise laundry at good rates. I will definitely stay here again. I booked for 2 nights but stayed 6 nights. The only possible negative that I can think of is if someone has an allergy to cats. There are over a dozen cats at the hostel but I love them! Thanks to ALL the staff who made my stay very enjoyable. I will be back!

    Nice place. Roof garden with plants and cats makes a restful break from the chaos of Cairo.

    Very nice please with very kind people. I love that it is a rooftop and close to some delicious food. They have a partnership with Blue Beach in Marina Bay, which is a great place to soak up some sun and party at night. Be aware that you are smack in the middle of the tourist area, so if your goal is to live in the culture, you’ll have to work at it a bit.

    Got the deluxe private room... nothing deluxe about it. I’ve stayed in many hostels and the room was definitely the worst... mouldy, peeling walls... it was just for one night and I had to work so needed to stay put and said it was ok when asked about it at 10pm. If you’re a couple or a group traveling I recommend NOT going here and getting a hotel for the same price. Nothing like the pictures at all. I would love to add my own pic and show the state of it.
