Lonely Planet review

An enduring backpacker favourite, the Penguin serves up its own brand of Bedouin chic, complete with pillow lounges overlooking the sand and sea that are best appreciated with several friends and a towering hookah. Once again, there is a mix of rooms to suit all budgets – from no-frills fan-cooled concrete boxes to air-con rooms with wooden balconies. Whether you desire a dive holiday or a pilgrimage up Sinai, the helpful and jovial staff are quick to sort you out.

Our independent authors have visited Penguin Village and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Dahab.
