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.

Cant acknowledge them enough & my main main Muhammad who sat & spoke with me while I worked night shift / ordered me breakfast & gave overall tips of what to do & see in Egypt !

    Really nice hostel on the rooftop of a building. Nice decoration and atmosphere, and cute cats everywhere. The rooms are correct and at a very good price. But above all, the staff is really really nice, helpful and caring. I recommend for all travelers !

    No complaints - standard, tidy hostel with decent private rooms for a cheap price. Rooftop area is spacious, there's a booze shop right next door so you can have a few beers on the rooftop after a day of sightseeing. Staff were super friendly and helpful.

    Great location, good prices for single and double rooms. But false advertising- the private rooms do not have air conditioning, it’s just a small fan which is wildly insufficient for the 40 degree heat of Cairo. The dorms have AC and I ended up moving there. Also, quite weak showers and the kitchen could’ve been cleaner. But for the price and the location (and the beautiful rooftop terrace), you might as well stay here.
