Really liked this place, the staff were very nice and helpful. They also promoted but didn't push their tours. It's quite a tricky country to get about and explore so the tours were quite a good option we found. Unfortunately it was a little quiet when we were there but still meet some friendly people.


Hostel was fine. You had to pay extra for a locker which is unusual in my experience. Also, the atmosphere was lacking a little bit, but that may be because of the current tensions in the Middle East are keeping tourist away.


Very helpful man behind the desk - speaks excellent English having lived in the U.S.. - a valuable asset for the hotel. Great taxi driver on one of the tours we took.

Hostel is very centrally located. Main sights in Amman are reachable by foot. Hostel offers nice tours through the whole country. Staff is very helpful and hostel is clean. Breakfast is not European style-buffet but you have 3 different meals to choose from.


The hostel is located in the very city center, just opposite the roman theatre, and therefore easy to find. In addition all the main sites in Amman are reachable by foot. The hostel offers nice tours to discover the rest of the country. Rooms are clean, breakfast is ok (no buffet but 3 dishes to choose from).


Location was right on the center and the guy at the desk was really helpful and has good suggestions on where to go. Would stay again!


Amazing location and great deal (breakfast included - and it is very good/filling). Don't hesitate pulling the trigger. Definitely worth the slightly higher price, but a great deal if you take advantage of everything they offer. You might be able to get cheaper deals on the tours they offer, but theirs are competitively priced and convenient.


I was supposed to stay for 4 nights, but in the end I stayed for 14. The staff was super friendly and aleays willing to help, the location is good so is possible to walk to the mai attractions of Amman ( Jordan Museum, Citadel, Roman Theatre). Recommend it for sure! I just think that the tours are a bit overpriced.


This hostel was more than accommodating for me. I was staying here as I searched for an apartment. The staff were endlessly helpful with their guidance. The gentleman at the front desk speaks very good English and was eager to help translate my rent agreement and help with organizing my time here. Additionally, their prices for trips around the area are competitive. The facilities and my room were cleaned everyday. I would recommend this to any traveller passing through Jordan.


No free lockers -- you have to pay 1JD per day for them, and the keys are extremely fiddly. I hate when places don't just let you use your own lock! They also have a weird key situation for the dorms -- there is only one key for each room but they don't make it clear that you're supposed to return it to the desk, so someone is always running off with it. Why even have a key to a dorm then? The staff is friendly and try their best, but they're not that helpful. The breakfast is great though!

Clearly we failed to impress on this occasion.... however most hostels charge for locker use . I never found the locker key fiddly but anyway.. Regarding the key for the room. Most people know the drill, leave the key at reception before going out! most hotels request guests follow this rule, its expensive if you lose the key and you would have to pay for that. Plus the key is so you can lock from inside :) Regarding staff not helpful.?? we have the most helpful staff ever.. strange ..


Had a lovely stay :)


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.


Great place, amazing location and the best staff to help book trips to see the beautiful country of Jordan

Great place to stay, great location. Tours are easily organised regularly. Rooms arebcleaned every day, interior is really good, and very nice place to stay. Only thing it lacks is a good common room. Food and drinks are for sale, and tv is available if needed (world,cup). Alcohol is however not sold. Brealfast is great, as is the staff.


Great staff, really friendly and really helpful, especially with transport and all the trips and tours they can arrange at a pretty competitive price. The rooms can be a bit noisy at night due to the traffic outside and the ramshackled windows, but otherwise the hostel is pretty good with the usual wifi, good breakfast and clean bathrooms.
