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.

Our rooms are equipped withprivate facilities and A/C. We have single, double and private dorms available and there are 39 rooms in total.

    Easy the best place to stay in Cairo. Great food, and they do your laundry for you. Super nice and helpful staff, we were able to book day trips and a nile cruise through them. Would really like to come back to Cairo just to stay at the hostel.

    I have been coming to Dahab hostel for more than 5 years now, for at least two trips a year. The rooms are small and basic but have all you need when you spend the day roaming Cairo, everything is sparkling clean, the staff is super nice and the location (mimicking a beach cabin on the Red Sea shores, only on a Cairo rooftop) is really original and fun. Thumbs up, I'll keep dahab hostel as my number one Cairo address as long as you guys keep afloat (and I hope you do)

    I love staying at Dahab hostel each time I go to Cairo. For those who want to get a glimpse of the real Egyptian spirit, I highly recommand it. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. The only inconvenient would be the slow internet speed, but for someone coming from Romania where we have the highest speed, anywhere we go would seem slow. In one word, Dahab is “gold” both as meaning and mood. The true Oasis in the city, you can find the peace and harmony as soon as you step in from the busy street

    Dahab hostel is clearly the oasis of Cairo city. You may take refuge from the busy streets and find the most suitable place to rest. The friendly staff will help you with all you need, provide touristic information and welcome you each time you step inside.

    Dahab is hands down one of the best travel hostels i've ever stayed in. The facilities are simple and clean. it's inexpensive and no hidden fees, but what makes the place is the warm and friendly staff, and it's airy rooftop atmosphere. They want to make the place as cheap as affordable as possible and so you can completely trust them. I found myself enjoying hanging out with the staff and getting to know them. I found them very real and far beyond the typical traveler small talk. A true gem.

    Honestly, I have been travelling all over the world for one year and this is my favourite hostel!! Nicest people ever. It feels like home. It is a total oasis from hectic Cairo, you really could be in Dahab but when you feel like getting amongst the action, you are staying in the best area of Cairo - so close to amazing food and shops and everything. Don’t stay anywhere else - come visit Sylvia, Mahmoud, Baz, Ramadan and all the great staff :)

    The staff are very helpful. They offered tour packages to Luxor and Aswan. They even helped me to plan my trip when I was there. There was a New Year Eve Barbeque to celebrate the arrival of 2020. Although I missed the event, I felt so welcome to be there. I will totally stay there again.
