Stay in a youth hostel

Budget accommodation in Dubai is something of a misnomer. While destinations around the world may boast of $5 a night hotel stays, Dubai budget means anything less than $100 a night. That’s where Dubai Youth Hostel comes in. A young traveller can find a room for less than Dhs100 a night. You might find yourself having to pay out a little bit more on taxis to make up for its out-of-the-way location close to the Dubai Airport, but the facilities are fantastic for this price range. Anybody who has ever stayed in cramped, flea-ridden hostels in Europe may be surprised to learn that Dubai’s branch has a private swimming pool and leisure facilities.
