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 definitely think this is the best hostel in Cairo and probably all of Egypt. A lovely oasis of colour in the bustle of downtown Cairo, with very friendly and helpful staff!

    I enjoyed Dehab very much. Only downfall is that the rooms are on the roof and easily reach over 100 degrees F. My room only had a fan, no AC. Sleeping was nearly impossible. However some other guests were able to move to a room with AC, but I did not ask to do that. Overall it was a friendly and comfortable hostel, but beware of rooms without ac!

    A gorgeous rooftop hostel right in the heart of downtown, up 7 flights of stairs or a creaky old elevator. Staff was all incredibly friendly, and I couldn't have picked a better place to spend during the Eid festivities.

    Awesome hostel with great people, and a bit of a hub for people to meet and make new friends. Theres a kitchen for you to cook, and store food/cold drinks in the fridge. An awesome roof too chillout area, and the staff are spot on. The only downside is there is no air-conditioning in the rooms. This is a big issue (for me personally anyway), as the 2 nights I spent i didnt sleep much due to the bedroom being hotter than an oven, or so it felt. However, one can sleep outside, on the roof...

    We enjoyed our stay here. The hostel is in a good location and has a cool rooftop terrace. The breakfast was cheap and good value for money. The only problem we had was that the room we were initially in had no air con (just a fan) and was very very hot. Speaking to other guests, they were in a similar position. However we spoke to reception and were moved to a different room with air con. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Also note the hostel only take cash.
