Last November i made a quick descision in Cairo to visit Dahab. I had heard quite nice things about it - as a special place for individual travellors - offering lots of sport and adventure activities. So I asked Ahmed in Meramees Hostel - to tell me nice place to stay in Dahab. He suggested the BishiBishi - price low... More

nice atmosphere, a good view of the gulf with a restaurant that is trendy and serves some delicious exquisite food, cleanliness was acceptable, although on my 2 days stay I had no hot water but because of the desert heat you wont be missing much during the day, internet was fast but only in the areas you could get it,...

The hotel was annoying in the night i couldn't sleep until i went out and scream... The room was quite good there weren't no soaps or cloth hanging.. The bathroom was quite clean although the bathtub wasn't clean at all... If u want to save money and don't care of the quality then u should visit this one

Yes, the bathrooms needs some upgrade...yes, the furniture is kinda old... but the rooms are perfectly clean, the staff is perfectly nice and the diving facilities... More

This hotel is only if you are concerned about a tight budget. Bathrooms are not clean and need a real renovation. Water is salty, can't use any kind of soap with. Most of the workers are friendly except that of the cafe manager. He will make a big hassle if you got a cup of coffee from outside his place... More
