Dina's Hostel
Ranked #15 of 131 Specialty Lodging in Cairo
Reviewed November 25, 2012

We stayed at Dina's for 4 days at the end of Oct and had a great stay. The hostel was centrally located, the staff was frieidly, the WiFi was strong, and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was more than we could eat, and hot water was plentiful. We had an ensuite room, but there were plenty of bathrooms available for those in shared facility rooms (We never saw anyone waiting.) AC wasn't needed. We walked to Tahrir Square, the Egyptian Museum, and the train station with no problems. Their free airport pickup saved us from having to deal with touts when we first arrived which was a great way to start our stay.

Dina's is a great value, and we highly recommend it.

This is a great Hostel to stay in. It is located in the downtown area and in walking distance to great sites like the Egyptian Museum! The staff is very friendly and the breakfast there is amazing. A perfect place to stay. I highly recommend Dina's Hostel!

Though we arrived at 2:30am the airport pickup was good. We didn't have to search for the one who was picking us up.
The staff was very helpfull, with planning trips, explaining where to get good food and about how to get to places. The staff speaks English really well.
Breakfast was simple but good. The dorm is clean, a bit small. The double room is really big and clean as well. Really a place to come back.
The hotel is located in the center of Cairo close to 2 metro stations. The staff can help you to find it.

This place is dope. A truly relaxing experience with the nicest staff I have ever encountered. Most travelers at Dina\'s are young and ready to hang out / check anything out around the city. The staff is also young, fun, and kind. The whole hostel has a great vibe, good artwork, fast internet, and a great complementary breakfast each morning to boot. The location is also central to most adventures around Cairo. I would highly recommend staying at Dina\'s.

Overall the hostel is clean and wifi is great!

I was in the dorm room and unfortunately picked the top bunk to sleep in. There were no ceiling fans so at night, it was warm and I simply sweat... I opted to sleep in the main room area with the pillows since the ventilation was a lot better there.

Breakfast was pretty good. Overall had a great time but next time will opt to sleep on the lower bunk closer to the window where ventilation will be better.

This hostel is pretty cool. It was in an excellent location being close to the square, the Nile and the Egyptian museum.
A great place to meet others.
The staff were really helpful and chilled out.
Best of all, the beds were super comfy, always a bonus!
