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.

    I loved this hostel. Right downtown and actually very quiet. You can barely hear the busy street sound. And the staff is lovely. I highly recommend it.

    We originally were in contact with the hostel for one of their River Tours. They were very easy to work with and worked their best to make sure that our trip was memorable and meaningful. They made sure it was a trip of a lifetime! The location of the hostel itself was was fantastic, there was lots to see around there and lots to go to that was within walking distance. The atmosphere was also great and lots of places to socialize. Overall, I would highly recommend this hostel and their services!

    We landed from Los Angeles in Cairo with a one-way ticket and only a booking at Dahab Hostel. We were hoping they might help direct us and we were very pleased with all the staff and especially Mahmoud who spent a lot of time with us booking trips in Cairo and all the way down the Nile to see the attractions at Luxor, Aswan, and Abu Simbel. Mahmoud made things very easy and the tours were well-priced with the flexibility we needed. This is a great place to start your trip.

    Overall I enjoyed my stay here and the staff was very friendly throughout my stay. They also got a driver to pick me up from the airport and provided a tour package - price was fair. The atmosphere really wasn't there but I think mainly due to COVID. A couple small improvements - There were a ton of mosquitoes in my room, I wish they sprayed some product to get rid of them. Also my fan wasn't working and there is no A/C which is tough during spring/summer months. The building is a bit rundown.

    Dahab was great. I visited Cairo for seven days in May/2021 and really enjoyed the atmosphere. Location is great, staff is friendly and cool, so no complaints. I'm a black guy from Atlanta. I thought I might run into some type of racial issues while there, but NO. It was great. Check'em out!
