This hostel really gets its points because of its WONDERFULLLL staff! I stayed here in April 2010 on a visit to Egypt with some friends (we were studying abroad in Turkey). We came before it was nicely decorated and furnished (I've kept in touch with Dina and her fb page and seen pics of the new place!). She completely took care of us! Airport pickup, maps, guidebooks, breakfast, water bottles, everything! She even helped us book cheappp packages to Sharm al-Sheik, Luxor, and Aswan. (she used to be a tour guide so she's got all the hook ups!). When we went to each of these cities, she even called one of the guys there to make sure we were ok! When I got severely sick and flew back early from Aswan to Cairo, she made sure there was a bed for me and my friend, and got all the medicine and tea I needed! Truly fantastic.
Dina's is located in the HEART of Cairo. Trust me, I've been back to Cairo a few times after this trip and it truly is so central. It is a few minutes walking distance from Tahrir Square and the Egyptian Museum. It is located on the 7th floor, but there is a small elevator (sometimes doesn't work), but it's not a bad climb. (and that's coming from a person who hates taking the stairs).
Everything was clean, especially for Cairo standards!
There is a dorm style room with bunks. I stayed here for 2 nights when I fell sick. Great, great way to meet people. Met an Australian, Canadian, and Hawaiian- great stories!
There are also private rooms. Stayed in the private rooms for 2-3 nights with my group. Clean, mirror, etc.
Overall you get an amazing experience!
