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.

    A very nice hostel that stands up to its name, a rooftop oasis in the city; a great retreat from hustle and bustle of the city below. The staff is the best part of the hostel, always welcoming and extremely helpful.

    Don’t let the exterior fool you. Once on top we were greeted by an outstanding and relaxed staff (Mahmoud 1, Mahmoud 2, Omar & Hassan) all willing to go above and beyond to work w/us. As consistent backpackers, the accommodations were great & the staff assisted us in so many positive ways. If you do the tours, they included EVERYTHING set up for us to visit Aswan and Luxor. Do the boat ride if you have extra time!!

    A chill hostel in the city center, close to the metro station and Zamalek. Very relaxed atmosphere, a lot of plants, clean rooms, comfy beds and helpful staff. I can recommend it for both solo travelers and groups. It's a lot of fun.

    Really good hostel in the middle of the city. The hosts were amazing and fun to talk with. They explained a lot about the country and the city. The rooms were very clean and the view from the rooftop was wonderful. You can't go wrong with this hostel!

    I really enjoyed my stay here, the staff, the location, the room and cleaniness was top notch. I had a room to myself, so it enabled me to have a great sleep. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, including my very special lady who had the brightest of smiles. The start of my stay, where I was welcomed with an old fashion elevator, gained great insight from the staff on the good and the bad on what to expect from Cairo and then the guests were friendly + welcoming. Highly recommend

    The place is as beautiful as always, only issue was the room smell from the previous guest who stayed in it, other than that, the place is one of the best in Cairo due to it' simplicity, staff and vibes. Kudos to the night shift man, he was very supportive and welcoming too.

    Nice rooftop hostel with a lot of space, hidden places, a lot of plants. Unfortunately also a shit load of cats that crave for food. I am also allergic against cat and sleeping in the bed was not relaxing at all. The service of washing clothes is completely useless, I got my stuff back almost that dirty as I gave it to wash. I am 100% sure they didnt put any detergent in the washing machine. Elevator cannot be called from any from except basement and just when all doors are closed properly...

    Very Good

    Considering I was travelling on a budget and spending each day out doing activities, this was a good stay at Dahab hostel. It's really well located in the centre but traffic is very busy so it takes longer than hoped to leave downtown. You can hear the traffic on the streets below but you get used to it. Only main concern was the rooms got quite cold at night and in the mornings as the rooms aren't well insulated (it is on a rooftop), and there were many mosquitoes at night.
