Perfect place to stay especially as a female backpacker. Dorm was spacious and well arranged with aircondition. Easy access to restaurants, sightseeing spots and downtown area. Also the reception can arrange you all the activities you want. And no worry about the security it is on the busy main street.

Staff is very friendly and helpful. I was in a 3-bed dorm--had air conditioning. I was on the top (4th) floor and water pressure was sometimes lacking (could be an issue for flushing toilets) but hot water was abundant. The included breakfast is big, filling, and excellent! Definitely worth a bit of a premium over other places. Jordan Tower is a block from the Roman Theater, which is great if you want to be in that part of town. Just be aware that downtown is grittier than other areas.

Personable and helpful staff, and run by a lovely British lady who knows Amman very well. In terms of location you can't get any more central. Lounge area is good for hanging out and practising Arabic too. I'd definitely go back there.

The guy who checked me in was really nice and helpful. Its a basic hostel but would come again if I were to stay.

Jordan Tower is good in many ways but then ok in others. The staff were fantastic, really helpful especially with organising trips and taxi tours. The breakfast was good and the location is excellent, a short walk from the roman ampitheatre and downtown. It's lacking in terms of atmosphere as there's no 'fun' activities or a games room or anything like that but the help I received really made my stay. Thanks!

Nothing stood out. Nothing bad but nothing great either.

I've stayed at the Jordan Tower Hotel on two occasions and I think this place offers excellent value for your money. The rooms are simple but clean. They have A/C (at least the private rooms do). The breakfast is awesome and delicious. The location is smack down in the middle of downtown Amman, so the main attractions are within walking distance. The only drawback is that the constant traffic around the hotel creates a lot of noise, so light sleepers (like me) should definitely bring ear plugs.

Very impressed. Great common area. Wifi is temperamental but that's ok. Huge breakfast included and they really try to rearrange tours to suit all people to reduce the cost. Great hotel/hostel

The staff could not have been friendlier and more helpful during our stay in Amman! The communal area in the hostel and the breakfasts were fab! I would definitely go back if Im in Amman again.

So happy with this hostel - travelling alone it was a great place to meet other people and very centrally located in Amman. The included breakfast is also excellent and huge! Loved the Arabic platter and tea with mint leaves. The staff is wonderful and so helpful, as well as hard-working. Tours drivers are so friendly and knowledgeable, but you can also easily organize trips yourself by bus etc and the staff are happy to help with this. Highly recommended!

The staff was very, very helpful, friendly, NICE and considerate. I would have stayed in the dorm but when I had a look it was dark and crammed full of people and luggage without room to move a foot or put anything so I stayed in a single. The shared bathrooms were not minimum standard; toilets didn't flush adequately and the sink was falling apart, literally. The shower drowned the whole place. But compared with other similar places I would stay here again.

The breakfast included in the price is really tasty and very filling. It was also a really good hostel to meet people when you are on your own.

The staff was fantastic - very friendly and attentive. They recommended places to eat and things to do. The driver I had for the Dead Sea day trip and the Petra (King's Highway was great and we got deals everywhere since he knew everyone along the routes. There is a fruit market 5 minutes away where you can get fresh produce cheaply. The hostel is clean and calm. It was nice to just relax in the common area. Would definitely return!
