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

I have just spent a few weeks in Cairo and was lodged at the hostel for most of the trip. As a whole, I was more than appreciative of my stay there! As this was my first trip in Cairo, I was of course a little new to the workings of the city and its denizens. The staff at the... More

I like to say some positive things before I go into the negative.. All the staff are really friendly,not very pushy and a really friendly guide, giving us lots of advice about how to spend our time in Cairo. The beds feel like stone and are incredibly uncomfortable. The shower was shared with the toilet floor space so water ran... More

We had our own room with ensuite toilet & shower which was great. The staff were very helpful and extremely nice, we organised various taxis and a day driver to giza through them. Our room seemed to consistently have mosquitoes in it, even after I had killed a few of them. They had mosquito repellent plug-ins on request and gave... More

Dina's is the best hostel we have stayed at in Cairo. The rooms are spacious, clean and airy. The bath rooms are kept immaculate and the sitting area is large, comfortable and welcoming. There was also no smoking in the sitting area while we were there. Smokers were asked to sit in the reception area to smoke. This hostel is... More

SLEEP at Dina’s Hostel as it is one of the the coolest little spots in this heaving behemoth of a city, both literally and culturally. You will not only be tucked away in a quiet, cool alleyway in uber-busy downtown, where both the volume and temperature is suddenly lowered, but you are also likely to come across some of the...

Dina's hostel is one of the best hostels I've stayed in. The beds are really good, with proper cushioning and sturdy unlike some other hostels/hotels. Cleanliness is impeccable (kudos to the staff at Dina's for making this huge place so clean!). I stayed in a dorm bed, and the room is huge with ample space for everybody to put all... More

Totally recommended. First of all, the hostel is truly beautiful, clean and confortable, they have a lovely common area and super friendly staff. As I stayed in Cairo only for a day, the staff quickly helped me to arrange a tour to see the amazing pyramids with a very nice guide and for a good price! Unfortunately I haven't had... More
