Stayed 2 night with the family on the way from Jordan to Sharm. Good base to visit St. Catherine - owner offers trips there for reasonable price. People are extremely friendly here. Double-deck restaurant at the sea with pillows and low tables is the best chill-out place I ever saw in my journeys. Though you can find the cheaper meal... More

I stayed here for a week in one of the dorm rooms. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Able to sort out any activity you want to do in Dahab/Sinai. And were very knowledgable about the area and other information you might want. Their diving centre was really good too, the staff who worked at it were top professionals... More

Good hotel, in front of the beach with very friendly staff. Thanks to Tito our stay was even better. The rooms have good air condicioneir, they can book everything in the city for you. The restaurant is a little bit overpriced, but you have very close options. Thanks, guys!

We stayed here during the colder months and it was an awesome place for my partner and I. Our bathroom facilities and bedroom were basic but very comfortable. They made sure that every part of our stay was special, from leaving beautiful rose petals on our bed to being friendly and making our stay here feel like home. If you... More

I had an issue with another guest who I knew but kept harassing me and the hotel did very little to help with this. If it wasn't for the other guest I would have... More
