At The Top Hostel-Ballin on a Budget

hostlnight.jpgFor my first 7 days in Dubai-I stayed at a Hostel called At The Top. It is on the 66th floor of an 83rd floor building. (an 83 floor building in Dubai might be tall for some places, but is nothing special here. Around the corner is the tallest block, where 7 of the 10 tallest apartment buildings in the world are, including at least one over 100 stories tall).

This is ballin on a budget. For $32.00 per night (sort of the high end for hostels), I got to walk into a building with a guard, tv's in the high-speed elevators, and important looking people leaving and entering the building.

The hostel itself as a nice breakfast, large common areas, and killer views of the Arabian golf with Atlantis on Palm Island (largest man-made island in the world). and builldings all around. IT was a 5 minute walk to the Dubai Marina with stores and restaurants lining the shoreline. The tram which ran to the metro downtown stopped in front of the building. Even the people who stayed there we're different then many who stay in hostels-there we're married couples, people in Dubai for business, and even a lady with a baby. After a week-I was kicked out (they we're booked), and I had to go to another hostel, which was more typical.
