“Perfect PLace at a perfect Time”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

3 nights in Cairo and no problem. Not only do I call for calm but to come to Egypt. It's time. Few tourists, interesting places almost empty.

Dina's Hostel is a perfect place, an oasis: Good price, excellent care of its people and with many activities (cinema at night for example).

I stayed in Dina's hostel for few times since last August!!! I feel super safe and the Cairo city is calm. All the sites are open now included Pyramid, Egyptian Museum and Al-Khalili. It was a wonderful experience I have ever spent. The staff very friendly, helpful and responsible.The hostel itself has great facilities and artistic atmosphere for stay! Also very clean, good breakfast, perfect location, reasonable price and many more!!
Highly recommend~

I stayed at Dina's Hostel for 5 nights from the 10th of September 2013. It was during some turbulent times, however staying here, you'd never realise the chaos outside. The staff really look after you, it is in a great Location Downtown, and most importantly very reasonably priced. I got to have a wander in all of the rooms, as unfortunatley i was the only one here, and they were all as spotless as the last. There's a kitchen and warm showers. I had a great time here, and highly reccomend you consider this as an option when coming to stay in Cairo.

It is really good located in the downtown of Cairo with easily access to other part of the city.
The service is excellent and the staff is super nice!!!.
Despite the current situation in Cairo, I consider that it is pretty safe to come and visit this beautiful country.
I totally recommend it. The hostel has a special charm, the rooms are nice, bathrooms cleans and they give a delicious breakfast that include some local fruits!.
You should definitely have to visit Cairo and stay at Dina's hostel!.

Cairo is a busy place, but Dina's hostel is the perfect place to escape after an afternoon stroll. The staff speak good English, and are always up for a chat or a sigaret. Sure, there is no airco in the dorms, but eveything else makes up for it, and certainly if you consider the price. This was the best+cheapest place I have been at in Egypt. Others have been dirtier, unfriendlier, and asocial. Check out the regular film screenings and things Dina Organizes!

This place is amazing. I stayed there in 2012 after being told by several of my friends who visited Cairo before that it was the place to stay. I don't know where to begin, the thing that attracted me to this place was it's air of sophistication and old world charm. It is not merely a hostel it is a cultural experience. If you want to experience Egypt then this would be the place to start. The staff are knowledgeable, the owner is a great woman, extremely friendly and helpful, the service is outstanding and the amenities as good as anywhere else. The breakfast is great. But really these are all secondary considerations here, when you stay at Dina's hostel you are staying at the place which attracts students, adventurers, journalists, and the more interesting kinds of globe trotters whom you can befriend and explore Egypt with together. There are tour guides who offer pickup and drop off service from the hostel whom the hostel has handpicked for their reliability and quality of service. Also the hostel itself runs many arts, cultural and community events which can expose travelers to a whole other side of Egypt that you may not otherwise experience. It is conveniantly situated and There is always something interesting happenig here... Do not consider staying anywhere else.

Dina's Hostel is one of the few budget places in central Cairo that gives you the opportunity to experience the true Egyptian life by interacting with locals and tourists in a great environment. The place consists of the entire 5th floor decorated in a in a hip way. The place is super clean and tidy. Staff is great and willing to help in any way possible (organizing tours, showing you around town, basic language, etc). Definitely will return.
