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.

    This was our first time staying at a hostel , It was an incredible experience. The hostel is very well located and close to transportation, stores, food and things to do like the Musem. We did the Pyramid travel package day with them and it was amazing and fairly priced. The staff are extreamly friendly and helpful. The owner is very Kind and informative. Great atmosphere for meeting new people and hanging out. Rooms are very basic. Lots of cats hanging around. Wifi is decent . Breakfast good

    If someone asks me what was the highlight of my trip to Egypt, I would say Dahab hostel. The kindness and hospitality provided by the hostel staff here is just amazing. They are willing to help you with any issue you might have and give you suggestions and tips about Egypt itself. Location of hostel is just perfect, a rooftop oasis filled with greenery in downtown Cairo near Egyptian museum, ideal place to chill out and socialise with other travelers and super friendly cats (Garfield

    Brilliant hostel - look no further if you're looking for a place to stay in downtown Cairo. I spent 4 nights here and I had a great time. The communal areas were very nice and it was really easy to meet other travellers, which is always a big plus when travelling solo. The staff were also incredibly friendly and more than happy to help. Great value for money - would highly recommend!

    Dahab hostel was the perfect place for a stay in Cairo. The staff were so kind and friendly, the atmosphere was lovely and the whole roof-top set up was incredible. We felt like we were in the middle of the Cairo chaos but also looking down on it from above. Could not recommend more.

    The staff was nice and the outdoor areas were great. But there were so many cats, the first day we woke up and there was a dead cat outside our room. The rooms and the sheets did not seem clean and there were brown stains all over the matress. The private bathroom was very small and was very dirty with mold all over the ceiling. We were a big group and most of us got bit by bugs, maybe fleas from the cats. Would not recommend.
