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 is one of the best hostels I have stayed in. I truly suggest that you take it if you’re looking for a cool atmosphere and you want to experience the real Egyptian housing style. Everything was neat and clean, staff were great and helpful!! You wont regret taking this hostel with a very low price comparing others in the area!

    Overall great hostel, the rooftop garden gives a great escape from Cairo madness and makes a good vibe. Facilities are basic but i didnt miss anything. The staff is very friendly and do not try to sell tours or anything for absurd prices. They are very helpfull in finding alternative ways to visit places on a budget plus they really know Cairo. In short: good value, fair people, relaxed vibe, great location!

    Wonderful place with very friendly and helpful staff. The staff was happy to give tips, exchange money and sort out other hassles. The rooms are basic but it’s perfect for a short stay. The hostel is on the rooftop on the 7th floor, which might not be for everyone and probably gets too hot in the summer.

    I just came back from a short trip to Cairo , and I have to say that a big part of me enjoying my trip was staying at Dahab Hostel . The hostel is centrally located, has a relaxed vibe , and you can't get sick of the rooftop view . The staff always smiling and helpful , and guided clueless me on how to make the most of my days. Would definitely stay here again next time I'm back in Cairo . (Small recommendation to accept cards for payment if possible ? ) Massive thanks to all the staff!

    Amazing hostel in the heart of Cairo! I have to say, that it was a pleasure to have stayed there. While the room was very clean, toilets were almost clean and some showes worked also with warm water. Great price and nice staff. All in one: Clear recommendation, I already booked another stay!

    Place is literally a dilapidated rooftop. It looks like it’s out of a scene from black hawk down. Thankfully staff refunded us. Also the elevator up looks like it can collapse at any point
