Abu Dhabi prices Last Updated: Dec 2021

Abu Dhabi is impressive, but unfortunately it seems to have virtually no interest in visits from “budget” travelers. There are no hostels or cheap hotels at all, though value in the 3-star and 4-star hotels is actually quite good.

If you really want to see the place on a shoestring budget you are probably best off visiting by bus from Dubai, which at least has some budget facilities.
