Good.. except for the cockroaches! Apr 05, 2013
We have 2 nights at this friendly hotel located perfectly in Dahab along the main strip /promenade of restaurants and in front of the Red Sea. We have 2 interconnecting rooms and the rooms are spacious enough and we are the closest to the reception ( 101 and 102). Besides the location, the biggest draw is the super friendly owner, very helpful.

Upon entering our rooms after checkin, first thing we notice is a big cockroach in the shower and another one in the room. We kill them both and discard them, hoping that's the last of them. However that night after we came back from supper, we killed about 20-30 more cockroaches. We went to the staff at the desk and ask for some cockroach killer. Within minutes, the staff member was at our room with some spray and apologizing profusely. At that time, he witnessed a cockroach. About 5 mins later the owner/manager came to our room and he also saw a cockroach, apologized profusely, gave us our 1st night in the hotel for free, as well as our laundry was done for free. The next night we kill about another 10 more cockroaches, less than the 1st night. Both nights we slept with the lights on needless to say.

The room is relatively clean otherwise, though the chairs are quite dusty. The lighting is very dim/poor in the rooms. However there is LOTS of hot water with good water pressure in the showers which was awesome.

There is a nice clean attractive pool, a restaurant and bar, and even a gym and dive shop. Laundry facilities are also available and quite cheap, I believe 2 LE for larger items and 1 LE for smaller.

Breakfast is included with an ok selection. Small choice of fruit, potatoes, 1 cereal option, plain yogurt, sausage, pancakes (aka crepes) and omelettes. Bread was gone consistently by 9AM. We had the omelettes and pancakes every morning which served us well.

The beach is very tiny, during high tide almost non-existant, however many of the restaurants have lounge chairs right out in front of the water to hang out in for the day. You aren't required to buy anything from the restaurants when you use the lounge chairs, but for buying drinks , lunch, water, etc, we did.

Would I recommend it? Once the cockroach problem is taken care of, definitely! I'm assuming we probably had the worst of the problem due to being the closest to the restaurant /kitchen/reception area.
one of our many roaches.. this one…

Hali, I'm like you. I hardly ever give a 100% negative review. I've actually shared my not so great review on a place in Orlando, and still had nice things to say. ;)

Excellent Place to Stay or Hangout in Dahab Jan 04, 2010
Stayed here for a week in a dorm room (40 egp).The room i was in was a 6 bed room. The room was small and only other drawback was that it had no lockers,but you could store valuables at the front.Other than that the place was excellent. Kept very clean, even the shared washrooms. Service was great,staff were nice.Breakfest was a buffet style,bread,rolls,cheese, meat,fruit salad,yogurt,juice,tea/coffee,plus you could get omelletes,and pancakes...all you could eat,all included.Churchill's Bar and Grill was a nice place to hangout. Beer 10 egp all day,servered good food,nice atmosphere.

Theres a clean pool, but i didn't use it.Lots of loungers to hang out around the hotel and at their ocean front place.

Overall i thought it was great value for the dorm rooms when you included the buffet breakfest. Staff were super. Very Clean.Good location. Highly Recommend.

They also have a dive shop out front. I didn't use, but i took a trip to the Blue Hole to snorkel(40egp). A great way to spend the day.

Best hostel ever... And I managed one for a year! Feb 09, 2010
Def the best value for your money! I stayed at "dahab dorms" which is On the resort and has sea views! For about 8bux you get a dorm bed of course, breakfast is EPIC all you can eat, made to order omeletes and pancakes, that alone is worth the price. There's a pool, loungers right on the red sea, a great patio for sunbathing and the food and drinks are reasonbly priced and tasty! I've been here fir over a week :)
