Dina's Hostel in Cairo makes going to Cairo worth it, just to stay there. Loved the place. Very friendly staff, excellent accommodation. The area surrounding the hostel is very urban, progressive (for Egypt). Safe. The building is an architectural dream: high ceilings, French windows, hard wood floors, pristine, nicely decorated. Sometimes the staff was a little late in answering requests... More

I stayed here several times over the two months I was in Egypt; the staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms and facilities functional and clean, the location convenient and quiet (relatively speaking), and the price very reasonable. As a seemingly popular hostel, it was always full of interesting people to meet and hang out with.

Dina's hostel is in a GREAT location, and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The common areas are well-kept and welcoming; a great place to meet new people or get some work done. It's worth being aware that the beds aren't the most comfortable (the sheets, blanket, and towels are a bit on the scratchy side), and with no... More

Situated in a nice location downtown. Rates are ok. The owner, Dina, is a friendly lady. She even provides the space for artists. A nice place for artists of different genre & countries to hook up. A small kitchen that the boarders can use for cooking small items , such as noodles etc and drinks as well. But remember the... More

Dina's hostel is good value for money if you are travelling in Cairo. It is located in a busy downtown street, in a neighborhood that is filled with clothing stores and cafés where a lot of locals shop and hang out. The hostel is quite rudimentary, but also quite cheap. Breakfast is simple (a bit of cucumber, a boiled egg... More

We stayed at Dina's for two night in late March. Everything you could hope for from an inner city Cairo hostel. The staff were really friendly and helpful, quick to sort the bathroom when we accidentally flooded it (take the plug out the floor drain before showering) and calling our airline to double check a flight that wasn't showing on...

Well located, right in the heart of downtown Cairo. Only a 15 minute walk to the Egyptian Museum and 10 minutes to the Metro. Also lots of shops and restaurant located close by. Friendly helpful, knowledgeable staff who are always willing to help. Excellent tours to the Pyramids, Bahariya Oasis & White Desert. Good clean rooms and bathrooms, comfortable common... More

Entrance lift is broken so be sure to ask how to use other 2 lifts cause its on the 5th floor. I am a solo female backpacker. I stayed here on arrival... More
