The only reason I'm giving this place 2 stars is because of the lack of crap storing my bags for the day. Contrary to other reviews I wasn't charged and they didn't make (much) fuss beyond the usual "it's so much effort!" attitude. Like others have said they really do hate early check ins! I'd emailed through hostelworld to ask... More

The hostel is NOT near the main tourist attractions, this is true. BUT it is right on the metro line, and next to a huge supermarket. It also is in the part of town that the real dubaians, aka the workers, live. Therefore, there are affordable internet cafe, sari shops, travel agencies, restaurants , big splash clothing shop,and anything, else... More

I stayed four nights at The Dubai Youth Hostel in February 2015. Here are my impressions: The bad: *No power plugs in some rooms. Some have only one for four persons. A nightmare to charge your electronic device. Better bring with you a power bank. *Far from Dubai's main attractions *Not a place where to meet new people *No group... More

I went here and it is actually a nice place for the money you pay. The rooms are nice and the bathrooms and everything is really nice clean. Couldn´t complain about anything. I had a 4 bed shared dorm and everything was totally fine. Only downside for me was that the staff seemed a bit dodgy and made me pay... More

At the time of return I used metro to reach Airport.The metro station is also at walking distance. There is a big Lulu hypermarket... More

I went here with a group of 20 people, and had an amazing time! Had a three person bed room with an own toilet and shower. After staying there for 6 days the breakfast started a little bit to bore me because it was the same everyday. The Hostel also had a swimming pool what was pretty nice to use.

The hostel is as mentioned in many other reviews located very close to the metro station, so it very easy and cheap to travel to Dubai city centre. The beds are comfortable and toilet, shower and breakfast are OK. The only consideration is the unfriendly and unhelpful staff in this hostel. Everyone I met during my stay in Dubai was... More
