“Perfect mid-range option in middle of Dahab”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

So...I'm too old for backpacker hostels but Dahab isn't the kind of place you (I) want to stay in a resort, either. Alaska Camp offers a nice medium between these extremes. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and the location can't be beat. The price is a bit more than other "camps" but you get a clean room in a quiet place. The location is perfect; right in the middle of the strip of bars, restaurants and shops. My one complaint would be that the rooms are a bit cave-like; if you are looking for a view of the sea or a balcony, try elsewhere. To make up for that, though, they do have a nice bedouin style lounge area where you can hang out.

This is our second stay in Alaska Camp. The first stay was back in 2010, we were very satisfied with our choice, so this time we decided to stay again in Alaska! With no doubt, still great service with great price!

The location is perfect for everything, you have restaurants just a few min walk away (I mean across the bridge to the north, don't like the restaurants close to Alaska much). The room is very clean with hot shower available.

The hotel helped us arrange airport pickup which is a good value too.

Nothing else to say, very satisfied, will come back for sure!

Room Tip: we stay in room 105 in which you can have wifi signals.The shower is good in this room as well. Othe...

Very green and cozy family-run hotel, located just 5 minutes from the center of Dahab, on the promenade. The rooms have all the essentials - a bed, a wardrobe, a small boudoir with mirror and shower. Our room was on the 2nd floor, balcony with views of the mountains and you can see the sea. The stuff was nice and helpful, but a bit slow

Room Tip: 2nd floor has balconies with nice view

I stayed twice here in two years period and both time I was satisfied. It is a simple but good enough place to stay in Dahab and You really got what You pay for! Not so expensive and fashionable hotel but rooms are clean and OK, furniture is satisfactory - nothing special and extra but it does the job!!!. Staff is very friendly and helpful, always at your disposal. Excellent location for the "promenade" and close to the good reastaurants. You won't be dissappointed!

Room Tip: In spring and autumn time do not search rooms with A/C - no need for it!

Great location in the heart of Dahab, quiet, clean and basic comfortable room. A stones throw from the shore where all the house reefs can be enjoyed for snorkelling or diving. I travelled on my own and Alaska was safe, well run and the staff very friendly. A nice lounge area with cushions, tv, refreshments and the wifi connection worked well. My room was a double bed with a walk in shower room, spacious and perfect for me to crash after a days diving. Jackie is on hand if you ever need anything and made contact with me straight away after receiving my booking through Lonely Planet to see if I needed any information before I got there and to introduce herself...great service! I would absolutely recommend Alaska to anyone looking to be in the heart of Dahab in a quiet and safe location.

Excellent value for money camp/hotel. My room was basic for a hotel but excellent for a camp, in keeping with its surroundings literally tucked away in the heart of Dahab. If you are wanting somewhere to just relax or for diving then I would recommend Alaska, they assisted me with everything from dive guides to helping with my trip to St.Catherines trip. Jackie was always on hand with a smile for helpful information and also for a sun downer at the local bar 'Churchills' which is a brief walk away. The 'arisha' is a great place to hang out and use the free wifi.
