Must Stay
Location, Room, Ambiance.
The hotel is perfectly located in the Bastakiya quarters of Bur Dubai. A perfect location... just a minute from the creekside, Museums, Galleries and Abra crossings. The metro is an easy 10 minute walk for access to the "otherside" of Dubai. The room were amazing with a great Arabian feel and a roof top lounge/chill out area. The staff were also so friendly and helpful. I definitely would stay here again and recommend it to everyone. Thank you XVA.

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.
