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.

    Honestly the friendliest staff and the nicest hostel. Great location, great tours, and just a great vibe. Stay here, there’s no question about it if you are in Cairo.

    The best hostel I have ever stayed at. The staff are the friendliest I’ve ever met. They are all incredibly helpful, really fun, and they make it the perfect base in Cairo. I don’t normally take tours, but I was short on time and took two from the hostel. They seem to have the best price for tours, as other paid quite a bit more than me. The owner sat with me for several hours to plan everything. You have to stay at this hostel if you are in Cairo. Great People, price and location!

    Best budget hostel in Cairo. The employees are nice, friendly and helpful. Even with questions apart from the usual tourist stuff. They even teach you the arabic language patiently and they will help you at all times, even in the middle of the night. Clean toilets and showers, good mattresses, simple but nice and fresh Breakfast, fast and cheap Laundry, usage of the kitchen at all times All in all a very nice and cozy atmosphere. The slogan "Your oasis in the city" really holds up to it's name!

    I had another good stay here. Convenient location, lovely rooftop, very basic room but has bed, bathroom and fan so was OK. Staff vary from disinterested and gruff to very helpful and friendly. Sylvia was one of the good ones, helping me and several others who came to reception with questions.

    This is an excellent rooftop location in the centre of Cairo. Friendly and clean. But there are things that need to be fixed before I would stay there again. Maintenance is poor. 1. It is impossible to call the lift from the hostel so you often have to walk down seven floors! 2. The WiFi is very temperamental. Not worth the trouble of trying to log on. 3. The rooms are boxes with a bed: one electric point; no shelves, bedside table, hangers etc. Nor mosquito net. But good shower.

    The staff are wonderful, kindhearted & friendly people. A few spoke some English which was much appreciated ! This was my last night in Egypt and my only regret is the long commute to the airport. Cairo traffic is insane & it took 45 minutes for Uber to get to Cairo International.
