Best in old city area of Dubai
location, price, staff
this hostel just located in a historical art area, and itself is also a art gallery,(personally I feel the show during my stay were a little scary)15 minutes walk from the subway. And I liked very much their staff, especially the man and women who take care of the breakfast.

Absolutely fantastic place with tons of character
Design, rooms, location
I love this place. I stayed here 1.5 years ago, and my second visit this weekend reminded me how much I love it. It's small, designed to be like an old Bedouin house with tons of doors and nooks/crannies, gorgeous design, fantastic bedrooms - extremely clean, unique design, feels like you're in a chic cave setting. The courtyard is wonderful with a huge tree in the middle, delicious breakfasts, etc. The shop is lovely, reception is 24/7, extremely friendly and helpful. It's 30 seconds' walk from the Bur Dubai Museum, souk, shopping, etc. It's a bit hard to find your first time as it's in the middle of a modern souk-type area, but it's fantastic. Enjoy!

Great place to stay
Restored historic building. Quiet, away from the street. Area of bustling local, non-tourist shops.
I would stay here again. The hotel is artistically decorated with whimsical art. It is quiet and very clean. It has character.
