Where to stay

Hurghada has the right kind of accommodation for every budget. It is the major tourism hub on Egypt's Red Sea coast, offering everything from international five star hotels to cheap backpacker hostels. Dahar and Sigaala are where most budget options are located. Booking ahead is not usually necessary for hostels in Dahar, where rooms can usually be found on the spot. Hurghada's budget hostels are simple but comfortable; they are close to shops, cafes and bus stations and the staff are always friendly. All of the suggested accommodation options in Sigaala are short apartment rents, for which you should book ahead. The only hostel in Sigaala is the superb, recently-opened Marina Square Hostel.
