    Such a great value for the money. This hotel is just south of the busy boardwalk and stays nice and quiet. The dive shop is fantastic and helpful, right inside the complex. Their gear is in great shape and well organized. You can snorkel right off the breakwater if you like. Highly recommended. Hotel is cash only.

    We loved Penguin Village. The location was perfect, on the quiet side of Dahab, closer to Laguna Beach and better priced restaurants. The room was clean and the staff were great!

    Stayed in a four person mixed dorm at Penguin Village. The dorm and facilities were relatively basic but did the job. Would suggest wearing ear-plugs at night as sometimes work was being carried out (one night power drills were operating at 2am) and one of the residents has been blasting dance music every morning / hasn't been told to turn the volume down. The staff are very kind and helpful - Sayeed and Magde in particular.

    I am really disappointed... That was my fifth time in Dahab but I wasn't satisfied with the hotel and the quality of the rooms The bathrooms were so narrow... Air-condition doesn't work while we talked with the stuff but they didn't do anything.. We didn't find the rooms which we booked and the alternative was really s**t! It was a worst experience I had

    After reservation and after you’ve deducted the amount from my credit card i’ve received This mail from the hostel and they didn’t give us any rooms Dear Mark! Thank you for your interest in staying with us, but your reservation for a dorm room is rejected. According to our hotel policy the Egyptian citizens are not allowed to occupy dorms. Please, let me know whether you wish to switch the room.
