This was my second time staying at Petra Gate. We checked in and headed directly to Petra. The host insisted on transporting us there free of charge and took us other places without charge for the remainder of our trip. After our first day we asked about Turkish baths for women and they arranged it all within minutes! Breakfast and supper were 6 JD extra and were excellent. If you are just looking for a place to rest your head after a long day of hiking then this is the spot to be!


Nice location very helpful staff good value of money fantastic all the way


Petra Gate was one of the highlights to my stay and Petra. The entire staff was very accommodating, helpful, and just all-around amazing. Food was great and the and the ride to Petra was very courteous. My bus for light rum had a quick stop over on the way to Amman and I stopped in just to say hello. I could not give a better rating to Petra Gate. Strongly encourage everyone to tell their friends about Jordan! It is a magical place.

We stayed for two nights in the hostel an had a great time! The owner of the hostel was very welcoming and made our stay very pleasant. The Hostel offers affordable food packages for Petra as well as a good breakfast and excellent dinner for a reasonable price. It is located about 20 min walk away from the entrance to Petra, but the owner always offered to drive us to the entrance for free and a cab back was just one dinar after a little bargaining. Just a great expirience!

Nasser and the staff are awesome and super nice ! They'll help you in every possible way they can to make your trip to Petra and other spots. Location is very safe and near the site, ATM and Currency Exchange right next to the hotel and mini marts all around. Hotel is comfy, easy to find and the rooftop view is very good.
