In recent travels my husband and I have stayed in a variety of hostel and hotel options, trying to keep as budget as possible. Dina's has hands-down been the best experience we've had: clean rooms, well-appointed with pillows, AC or fan, outlets, and - most importantly! - anti-mosquito plugins. The staff have been phenomenally helpful, going above and beyond to...

THis was my second stay at Dinas hostel. IT is spotlessly clean, wifi is fast and the airport pickups were fairly priced. I stayed in the dorms which were very comfortable. It obvious the owners take pride in their establishment. WOuld stay here again in a heartbeat.

The staff were nice and funny. They speak english fluently and can help you with any questions that you have about the city and being a traveler there. I stayed in the dorms, which was a great way to meet other travelers that I explored the city with. Rooms and facilities were clean and nice. Breakfasts were simple, but very...

Bearing in mind my tastes are very much more at the hotel end (I had to stay at a hostel with my Egyptologist friends), I was surprised by comfortable Dina's was - a real achievement in downtown Cairo, and the staff were great, especially one young lady who took me to a local pharmacy to help me with my mosquito...

Really felt at home in this hostel. Staff were always helpful and gave good directions to either transport options, food or local advice. The prices were really fantastic value and the location was central enough for making your way around Cairo on foot. What I really personally like best was the decor, the wood and furnishings, coupled with the big...

staff is amazing, Dina is a good host but always busy, the place is laid back, a typical backpackers hostel where to meet people and use as a base for personal expeditions. rooms are huge and the place is all very clean. Loved it.

It's not the cleanest hostel. The bathrooms were dirty and they don't change the blankets. The staff don't seem to know much either and there are far too many mosquitos. There are definitely much better hostels around.

I was amazed after staying in several different hostels in Cairo over years that I have been coming back to Egypt at how unique and lovely Dina's Hostel was. The standards of cleanliness, inexpensive prices, the variety of breakfasts, friendly and engaging staff, spacious rooms, cozy common areas made my stay delightful from the beginning to the end. Dina's Hostel...

Hostel is quite big hostel on the 5th floor.There are one manager, two males and one girl staff except the owner Dina. But their works are not so communicative and collaborative each other even though you ask to solve some issues like hangers to equip in shower booths, they would not do any measures Staffs are quite mechanical, no active...

Had a wonderful stay at Dina's Hostel from the moment we arrived to the very last second! Breakfast was delightful, it varies from day to day. The mattresses were nice and firm. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

“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).”
