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...

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...

I stayed in Dina's Hostel in 2010 when it had recently opened and having followed the Hostel on Facebook and many of Dina's posts on art events on the roof and on the adversities of running a hostel in Cairo since 2011, I felt compelled to give a very belated review. I found Dina's online and have since recommended it...

I stayed in the dorms which were scrupulously clean and very comfortable. The showers and toilets were clean and fully functioning. Breakfast was included and delicious -no lunch needed after that! The staff were exceptionally friendly and extremely helpful. I recommend this hostel unreservedly for anyone travelling on a budget -it represents excellent value for money!

“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).”
