Located right in the heart of bustling, downtown Amman and relatively close to major historical attractions. The Roman Theatre is only 5-10mins walk while the Citadel, with some cool archaeological relics, is about 15-20 minutes uphill walk. Right in the middle of the markets, it's also only 10 mins uphill walk to Rainbow Street which has many nice places for food or drinks, so has a good nightlife atmosphere. The rooftop is nice and room is comfortably good size but the bathroom is quite small


Good atmosphere,kindly staff,good location


Excellent staff who are very helpful from where to get something to eat to short-cuts to Citadel. The place is very accessible to souvenir shops, money exchange, sugar cane and shawarma shops.

Better to improve the cleanliness in the dormitory, and have some lockers.


The hostel is well-situated - 10 minutes walk to Citadel and 20 minutes walk to Rainbow Street. Thamim is very helpful in introducing good places to visit and nice restaurants. Be prepared to hear some noise at night though, as it's in the downtown area which can be quite busy even after 11pm.


I thought that based on the great reviews on this site, we would have chosen a very decent place. We checked in and reserved a taxi the next morning. Everything was fine until we saw a large cockroach in our room and mold on the water bottles in our fridge. The next morning (we had an early flight), we couldn't take a shower since they were replacing the water system during Ramadan. Needless to say, had they told us this, we would have stayed at another hotel. Would not recommend this place.


This hotel is an excellent choice for a budget travel. The owner and the staff are great, they do all they can to help you and provide advise in what to see in the city or how to organize your vacation. The rooms are very clean, breakfast is very good in their restaurant with a fabulous view.

This hotel was a very good choice! The staff were very friendly and knowledgable about city and tours. The rooms were basic but comfortable. We are happy we chose to stay here. We would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Amman.
