I was at Dina's Hostel during the protest in 2013. You could see the chaos from the balcony. What an experience!! This place has its charm. Old-school lifts, local movie projected on some nights, friendly staff that cater to your every needs. I am a budget traveler and Dina's Hostel is a backpacker's dream

It's not the most fancy hotell, but it is more than compensated for with the very good location in the center of Kairo. They have a good understanding of what the modern backpacker needs, and they gave us many good advices. We liked it so much we came back again. There is a reason this place is in a lot...

Nicely located and great character. Very friendly and helpful folks. Located in an old downtown building, the place great character and obvious associated problems (old lift, some mosquitoes etc.), But all in all great value and would certainly love to go back.

Very cheap place to stay! Make sure you get a room with AC though. We stayed Aug/Sept for a few nights and all they had in our dorm was 1 fan between 4 bunk bed. Needless to say, it was fairly hot. Dina is very helpful! She can recommend anything and give you directions! You are walking distance to the...

Al thought the hostel is small apartment, its services are good. Very helpful staff & friendly as well. Breakfast is humble but delicious in the same time. Their tours packages are outstanding specially if you are planning a tour outside Cairo. Their Nile cruise is over the top I do recommend Dina's hostel for backpackers

Dina's Hostel in Cairo makes going to Cairo worth it, just to stay there. Loved the place. Very friendly staff, excellent accommodation. The area surrounding the hostel is very urban, progressive (for Egypt). Safe. The building is an architectural dream: high ceilings, French windows, hard wood floors, pristine, nicely decorated. Sometimes the staff was a little late in answering requests...

I stayed here several times over the two months I was in Egypt; the staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms and facilities functional and clean, the location convenient and quiet (relatively speaking), and the price very reasonable. As a seemingly popular hostel, it was always full of interesting people to meet and hang out with.

Dina's hostel is in a GREAT location, and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The common areas are well-kept and welcoming; a great place to meet new people or get some work done. It's worth being aware that the beds aren't the most comfortable (the sheets, blanket, and towels are a bit on the scratchy side), and with no...

“Rooms on the left wing have a better view but are louder as they are facing the street. Those in the right wing tend to be a little quieter. Both wings offer different types of rooms (with or without private bathrooms).”
