Maybe the cheapest accommodation in Dubai but not very nice. Some crew members are friendly, some aren't. I had to wait two hours for check-in although there were enough free beds! Location is good, 5 min. away from the Metro but to Marina it takes you about one hour or more. Wifi is not included, very expensive and works only... More

The beds were very average. No power points next to bed. Main door was falling apart. Aircon was terrible. It is not acceptable given the amount they charge. Spend an extra $50 and stay at nicer place of possible.

Very close to airport, reachable by Metro. Room is basic but clean. The room was missing towels, but the reception staff was able to dig some up for us even though we arrived after midnight. Breakfast was great.

I had a great stay here in Dubai Hostel. Breakfast included was great! The staff were fairly helpful. The rooms were clean except for the private dirty bathroom, only dirtied by the other 3 guys in my room.

I have stayed here several times over the past few years. It is NOT the cheapest place to stay in Dubai. There are less expensive but hard to find low budget hotels in Diera that cost less per night but they are sketchy and inconvenient. There are occasionally regular hotels, usually out towards Jebel Ali, that will have sales for... More

I booked through hotels.com and they did not post my review. I spent 5 nights in March 2015. The hotel has an internet booked price, a cheaper desk advertised price and an even cheaper cash price, if you ask. Place is a clearing house for indian migrants looking for cheap accomodation whilst looking for a job. Its not a YOUTH... More

The only reason I'm giving this place 2 stars is because of the lack of crap storing my bags for the day. Contrary to other reviews I wasn't charged and they didn't make (much) fuss beyond the usual "it's so much effort!" attitude. Like others have said they really do hate early check ins! I'd emailed through hostelworld to ask... More

The hostel is NOT near the main tourist attractions, this is true. BUT it is right on the metro line, and next to a huge supermarket. It also is in the part of town that the real dubaians, aka the workers, live. Therefore, there are affordable internet cafe, sari shops, travel agencies, restaurants , big splash clothing shop,and anything, else... More
