Nice place, with very friendly and helpful staff. They made every effort to ensure that the stay was as comfortable and hassle free as possible. Excellent for the budget traveller.
No hot showers, dirty and very old bedding/pillows and one of our rooms smelt mouldy.
Good value hostel in a central location. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Hostel is basic but clean. Great roof terrace with great views.
Great staff here - really helpful for organising things and they give you a good price. Really friendly as well. Came in the off-season so quite empty and can't really comment on the atmosphere but a good location in the centre of the real town (not just hotels) so you can mix with the friendly locals in restaurants. Also not a long walk to Petra.
Would really recommend this hostel. Great view from roof terrace over to Petra, friendly and helpful staff. Free transfer to Petra, and very good meals - we had a fish and rice feast which has been captured on camera and put on their website!
An excellent place to stay.. just in the center of down town. staff been very friendly..also the view from the top is so gorgeous, highly recommended, will come back again:)
Very nice staff, very accommodating. I left my credit card at the desk, guy actually drove into town to track me down and give it back! Now THAT'S service! :)
The location is very good. You can easily go to Old Petra. The staff is very friendly and open to help visitors. I enjoyed my stay in this hostel.

Overall a very good hostel. Good location not too far from Petra. Clean rooms with hot showers any time of the day. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very good value for money. However, the drain in the shower stall did not work properly so that a puddle of water formed during each shower and the light in the bathroom did not work. Nonetheless, these two shortcomings do not diminish in any way the overall good quality of the hostel which I recommend without any hesitation.

really good hostel with a great staff 15 min walk to the Petra's visitors centre They even gave me an upgrading to a better room... so I'd totally recomend this hostel...
Owner and the staff were extremely helpful, we arrived and I needed to speak to variousl people in Aqaba to confirmation onward travel arrangements, as well as sorting taxis to Petra and they sorted it without any problems. Location is good, not far from Petra, a couple of miles away. Facilities were good, hot shower and decent sized rooms. Evening buffet meal was excellent. I would definately recommend this hostel
