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,...

I always stay at the Penguin when I visit Dahab. I have stayed with friends, family, and solo. As a female travelling solo in Egypt it was amazing feeling so well taken care of at the Penguin. The staff who work at the penguin are so friendly and greet you by name. A tip: be sure to call ahead and... More

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

If you look for a clean, nice and perfectly located budget hotel, then you have hit the pot. I'm already the second time here and I found the same friendly staff and nice atmosphere. 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

I spent a 4 days - 3 nights holiday with my friend at Penguin village in Dahab. First impression was rather good. The manager Ahmed is a funny, smiling guy, welcoming and relaxed. The location is fine, just along the beach, the building has a certain charm, and has recently been repainted. Therefore I closed an eye (or both) on... More

we were a group of 8 that stayed there, the double room with a sea view was the best, clean bathroom, perfect sea view terrace, a mini-bar. the triple room w/sea view was very old and clumsy, the double room with no view was average. All rooms had hot water, free wi-fi. the reception guys were very helpful, they organised... More
