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

Our trip to Egypt was a cultural trip as our 11 year daughter is very interested in Egyptian mythology. We were a little concerned about going to Egypt, but were persuaded by reviews on -line. Egypt and Cairo feel and are really safe. This is the time to go with few tourists and to support the Egyptian People. We booked... More

My family and I just returned from a 2 week trip to Egypt. We had a wonderful experience staying at Dina's Hostel in Cairo. The location was great. We were able to walk to the Egyptian Museum. There were restaurants and Forex close by as well. Bathrooms are shared but very clean. Nana is fantastic and a big hit with... More

I stayed at Dina's twice in the past. I stayed both at the dorm and a private single bedroom. The prices are perfect for what you get, and the general atmosphere is excellent. The staff are helpful and friendly and the place is clean enough. Mosquitoes can be very annoying in the summer. I love the communal spaces at Dina's... More

We chose Dina's Hostel because of the reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. Great location in Cairo, close to the Tourism Office, metros, places to eat, and downtown city center. The street it's on is a bit noisy with the crazy traffic, but nothing to really bother you as the hotel is located at the very top floor... More
