BackPacker 16 Hostel in Dubai


Awesome backpackers hostel in Dubai! It was luck that I found this place and stayed there. Swimming pool, GYM, Sauna and Steam room on the last floor of the hostel. Really comfortable beds, matrasses and pillows. There tons of bars and restaurants nearby. There is a grocery shop in the next building. Wifi works well in the hostel. Its was very clean, neat and I felt quite safe. I will definitely stay in this hostel again when I'll come back to Dubai.


Staff in the hostel was so friendly and helpfull. Brand new furniture, clean room and personal lockers. I liked it! Swimming pool was out of this world!!! It open air pool on the roof on 18th floor! Thats was awesome! I spent one day on a desert safari tour. For sure I had a great time here, I meet nice people in the hostel who showed me Dubai. I would recommend this hostel in Dubai for my friends who will visit Dubai.


Comfortable hostel to stay if you came to Dubai to fing a job or you are already working here. Wifi was great and location very good. Metro station just few minutes away. Every day cleaning. Bed linens and towel were provided. Cool additional options like swimming pool and GYM. There is free parking outside of the hostel. Probably the best hostel in Dubai to stay if you are on a budget. Recommend!
