I stayed last year for 3 nights. The staff are good but because I'm woman I felt as I'm none, is cultural, they didn't look at me when I asked for somethings. The worst is you have to leave your passport during your stay in the reception, It makes me affraid if disapear. My room had no aircon, is bad... More

The following in my opinion having stayed in the hostel for 4 nights: Its good, clean, comfortable beds, bathroom/shower in rooms, towels provided, beds changed each day and rooms cleaned, rooms have Air-Con, great cooked breakfast with cereal, swimming pool, cheap compared to elsewhere in Dubai, 5 minute walk from a large supermarket (like Tesco's) and 5 minute walk to...

After reading several reviews, I was bit confused and irritated. I enter the area with a mixed feeling. A warm welcome, stay in a room with 3 guys and a nice area. You can see the airport and a mall is a couple of min away. Taking the metro to stadion and only walk few min. Nice breakfast, central hostel... More

For the price it's actually pretty good. You get a clean bed, towel, ensuite bathroom, in room fridge, and a good selection of products for breakfast, although it's only served between 7am - 9am. There's also a swimming pool, and the hostel run a few trips. It is only a few minutes walk to the metro which takes you to... More

AED120 per bed in a dorm room. Four to a room. Attached bath. Fridge. No a/c so suspect summer will be sweltering. Breakfast is eggs, sausages, fuul, cheese, etc. 5 minutes from Stadium Metro, local supermarket, bus stop. WARNING: If you buy duty free at DXB, pack it into your luggage out of sight. One cannot carry alcohol on the... More

This place is not well run. Sure, you get your bed and shower, but its sad that a YHA facility is on such low standard. I guess a cheap hotel would do much better. Its not clean and the location is also not good (even if you want to stay near airport). the personnel just do their job. Nice Breakfast... More

I visited YHA Dubai last week for one night. It's not a very nice place to stay, but if you are looking for just a bed and a quick sleep, give it a go. The guy at the front office isn't really born for working in a hostel. Hostels should be your home away from home and this hostel isn't... More

We had booked the hotel through web site 'Easytobook.com" and had received confirmation. When we reached the hostel, we were made to wait for 30 minutes as the person who saw us coming (the only one on desk) went away for prayers. Person outside the desk-duty explained he can do this as our checking time is 2 PM while it... More

I stayed in Dubai Youth Hostel for 3 nights last November and my overall experience was great. I read some reviews that their breakfast is not good but when I was there, there's a wide variety of buffet breakfast. Also, this hostel is near the Stadium metro station so I can move anywhere in Dubai easily. The only downside of... More
