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 in onto our new optimized FREE WiFi Broadband Internet coverage for the entire hostel.

Our rooms are equipped with private facilities and A/C. We have single, double and private dorms available and there are 40 rooms in total.

Airport Pickup Service

Once you have made your booking, you will be contacted by a staff member to organize it with you. At the airport, you will find our representative waiting for you holding a sign of your name and Dahab hostel, after you finish passport checking and custom clearance.

This was our first time in a hostel. (We are a family of five ... 3 kids 9, 14 and 16) We loved it here! Great outdoor space ... loved the cats. The staff were very welcoming, open and helpfull. We also liked the interaction with other travellers from all ages and backgrounds. No loud parties here but a very friendly vibe. We didn't miss an ensuite bathroom (allthough you can get a room with ensuite) as the shared showers an toilets were recent and clean. Great value for money.

This hostel was even better than we expected, really friendly staff and the facilities are really nice. The breakfast included is really good and the airport pickup was really comfortable and convenient. The location is really good, really close to the Egyptian Museum.

Ostello molto bello, le aree comuni sono immense e distribuite sugli ultimi due piani del palazzo in centro dove si trova l’ostello. Personale gentile, ambiente molto tranquillo (forse troppo, ma è imputabile al fatto che il nostro viaggio fosse durante ramadan). Camera più piccola di quanto mi aspettassi ma comunque sufficiente, mi piacerebbe che l’ostello aggiungesse le foto delle camere sulla piattaforma.
