    Description

    We are a cool and cozy environmentally-friendly hostel in Dahab, Egypt, which was founded in October 2022.

    Given our background as passionate travelers, our vision is to create the biggest chain of hostels in the world that are more than just a place to stay. We want to be traveler's local friend wherever they go.

    We are pretty active and the best way to explore Dahab/Egypt since we host 2 or more events daily and connect you with over 25 experiences around Dahab. Our events varies from karaoke nights, volleyball games, kayaking by the sunset, desert safari and mountain parties to events inside our hostel such as music nights, board game nights and movie nights. The aim is to help travelers to live as locals.

    We are located in Dahab, which has by time developed into a small, coastal hippie town in the South of the Sinai peninsula, Egypt. It is considered an all year round destination for travelers who want a break from big cities and connect with nature. The Red Sea is perfect for divers, just as the mountains are for the climbers and hikers. Also, Dahab is windy most of the year, so that makes it a paradise for wind and kite surfers.

    Dahab is also a meeting point for spirituality and art. Our community helps to discover and understand different philosophies and spark creativity. Maybe you will discover a new passion by joining a yoga or meditation class? Or simply enjoy listening to the sound of the sea.

    Given that Dahab used to be a Bedouin fishers village, life of the local community still focuses on simplicity, as you can see in the streets and taste in the delicious traditional food.
