“Great budget friendly hotel in the middle of it ALL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

What a wonderful time we had in Dahab. Alaska was an excellent place to call home for the week+ of diving. The staff were professional, courteous and helpful, and did a great job of providing a comfortable, safe and convenient home to relax in. I would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend it to any budget holiday seeker.

Alaska Camp is very well located, just off the main promenade in Dahab, very close to the bridge. Everything is within easy walking distance: the beach, dive centres, shops, etc.

We stayed there for 10 nights in March/April. Our reception was very warm, the staff generally being friendly and helpful.

The room we had was pretty basic, but clean and comfortable. We had a fan and an en-suite bathroom.

I would definitely recommend this camp as an inexpensive place to stay in Dahab. We will be definitely staying here on our next trip!

Once again we stayed at the Alaska Camp, another great holiday.Jackie and her staff are great, very helpful and friendly. Rooms clean and everything that you would expect. really central, we had friends staying at the lagoon who ended up getting in a cab to Masbat at night. Even though it is central, no noise from the town. Will definitely be staying again.

Room Tip: depending on time of year depends on choice of room. We have stayed in November and march and have n...

Good budget hotel slap bang in the centre of Masbat. Not the Ritz but for a comfy bed and hot shower after a long day diving you could do a lot worse for €25/night for a double room with hot+cold air con. Clean rooms and helpful staff made for a very pleasant stay. Although very central there was no noise at night, though I should point out that we were there in the quiet season. There is a communal lounge area where you can chill out and have a giggle watching Arabic moviesor use the free wifi. I'd definitely return to Dahab and would probably book Alaska again.

I've stayed at Alaska Camp at least 3 times now and it has become my go-to place in Dahab.

Here is why:

1) Clean- Rooms are basic but clean and have everything you need
2) Location- You are right off of the main boardwalk area by the lighthouse (one of the most scenic and famous dive and snorkeling spots in Dahab) You are also steps away from all of the restaurants and cafes and nightlife.
3) Price- !!! EXCELLENT
4) Staff and Management- super friendly, manager is English (Jackie) and all of the staff are very helpful

If you are looking for a low-cost, simple and clean place with a perfect location, you've just found it.

I stayed in Alaska camp 7 years ago and back then it was very basic, but absolutely gorgeous.

On my return to Dahab this year, I decided to go back and spend some of my time in Alaska camp. It was even better than last time, I highly recommend it for an affordable and friendly place to stay.

The staff are so helpful and warm. Need anything and just ask.

It is located right in the heart of all the action (which in Dahab's case means relaxation and good food).
