Property Description

Jowhara is a small Bedouin hotel consisting of 50 bathroom ens-suite rooms. The hotel is owned by a local Bedouin family named 'El Towery' from the Mazaina Tribe for over 20 years and is currently managed by the third eldest son Mohamed Soliman El Towery.

The Jowhara hotel is still run today by a Bedouin team and they work hard to keep the ancient traditions alive.

The rooms are very clean and comfortable with bathroom en-suite and balcony's. Some rooms have air conditioning while others a fan, and in the garden there is an 'arisha' - a shaded open resting place - for you to relax. There is free Wi-Fi, a cafe and we can help you on site to arrange everything from airport transfers, diving, safari, hiking or anything else you might like to try.

Although we are centrally based in Dahab the hotel is very quiet, peaceful and tranquil with gardens of green grass, plants and Palm Trees.

Many of our guests come for a week and stay a month, so be prepared to stay longer than you planned!

    Jowhara is a great hostel! It’s extremely central whole not being on the main touristy promenade. My room was comfortable and clean and the staff was incredibly accommodating, holding my bags all day after checking out.

    The Jowhara was perfect. It was only a 5 min walk from the tourist area which meant it was much cheaper but still had excellent facilities. Staff are friendly and helpful and speak good English. They can buses, taxis, diving/quad-bike/exploration/... trips which are as good and cheaper than the ones offered in the centre of town. There are supermarkets, cafes and other shops outside. It is easy to find and just round the corner from the Easy Delta bus office where we bought tickets for Cairo.

    Very good quality price rate. If you are looking for something cheap and good enough is the perfect place. Not luxury.

    Nice prices with clean bedrooms and super friendly staff. Great location, just steps off the beach and on the a Main Street with tons of shops and restaurants. More of a hotel than hostel, so quite and chill at night. Not the energy of a normal hostel. Not a bad thing, but something to be mindful of it you want a more upbeat place. Would definitely stay again.

    Very nice staff who didn't try to haggle or hustle us on the price. A little on the edge of most of the little shops and dive shops, but great value for a little walk. We really enjoyed the outdoor areas too.

    No frill hostel. The place is a bit rundown and is kind of uncomfortable looking, but otherwise ok. The "lobby" and the setup of the hostel makes it look beautiful, but the rooms are simple and no-frills. The water heater is only good for one shower at a time before needing an hour to recharge. The guys at the hostel are ok and are relatively helpful but there was this guy who was trying to sell me his dog constantly. And there were random guys who were friends of the guys working also.

    Stayed for 2 weeks because this had the best price for double room. A/C worked well. Shower had hot water but only for a couple minutes. Wifi is very very slow like everywhere in Egypt- and does not reach inside the room. No intro to the city upon checkin, not really a hostel vibe. More of a motel. Do not use Smart Laundry across the street- gave us the wrong clothes back & still dirty. Al Masry food next door is the best! 10 min walking to all the action in seaside Dahab.

    After 45 days travelling in Egypt I already tell when I'm in front of genuine Egiptians who approach u as a person and not just like an ATM. Our experience in this hotel has been closer to that money making point of view of foreginers. We book trough website a fare that apparently was too cheap by their mistake. We did not feel confortable, and we were even asked to show how much we pay in comissions to the website😑. But I guess your experienc here will be great as long as u are profitable!
