In recent travels my husband and I have stayed in a variety of hostel and hotel options, trying to keep as budget as possible. Dina's has hands-down been the best experience we've had: clean rooms, well-appointed with pillows, AC or fan, outlets, and - most importantly! - anti-mosquito plugins. The staff have been phenomenally helpful, going above and beyond to answer questions and to help facilitate odd requests (like getting something tailored), and are an incredibly personable bunch. Their wifi is excellent, and the common rooms are used. It says something about the clientele that we spoke with travellers from a variety of different countries, all of them educated, well-spoken and interested in Egypt beyond just "I came to see the pyramids"; the clientele is a step up from generic backpackers, just as the hostel is a step up from generic hostel. Breakfasts are different every day with fresh ingredients (pita, hummus, hlawa, flaky pastry-esque bread, soft cheese, olives, the list goes on!), and handled in a clean and sanitary fashion.
Dina's is top of our list to stay at, and *when* we return to Egypt, will be the top of our choices to stay at.
