This place is fantastic in every possible way! Great: staff, location, in meeting other travelers, free breakfast, beds, rooftop, pack lunch, you name it... The owners are super helpful and informative! I recommended this place to everyone in my path (in Amman & Jerusalem) that said they were thinking to head to Petra, probably should have taken more business cards. When I come back to Petra, I will stay at Saba'a! And you should too!! Thanks so much for a wonderful stay! :)
I think you have some of the friendliest staff working at Saba'a Hotel. Everyone was very helpful and offered to provide us with any information as we needed. I would have liked to see a reception area a little more cleaner and tidier. The room had everything we needed, but the drain in the shower didn't drain properly and the heater in the room was not sufficient to heat the area. Please know that we are not complaining, just offering some comments to help you with future guests.
A really good place to stay. A good location with exceptionally nice staff and a good so Isaak area for meeting other travelers.
Very friendly hostel with lovely staff. Well located for Petra, about 10 mins walk. Only gripe is the walk up the hill at the end of the day, but thats Wadi Musa for you and compared to many other hostels it's a very good location. I would recommend this to everyone.

It makes me feel like back to British BnB! So friendly, clean and beautiful...
Nice owners, large shared room, breakfast was great. It takes 20 minutes to go down to Petra entrance (and a little more back as it is uphill!)
One of the best hostels I have stayed in yet. Good atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff and brilliant location. Would definitely stay there again.
Nice Hostel, runs by a lovely english woman, 15 minutes from the petra's entrance by walk. They do serve a VERY GOOD BREAKFAST, which is the best way to get ready for the long day you will spend walking in Petra. The hostel is quite old but you get more then enough for the price you pay for. I've stayed in a dorm: the shower was very hot, just the place was a bit cold but you won't die :) Higly reccomended to any backpackers that travels on budget Thanks!! I would come back again!!
This place was great! The owners were friendly and very accommodating. They provided recommendations for getting around, where to eat, and anything else you might be needing. They also have a nice Jordanian breakfast, packed lunches (for a small additional fee), and hot showers during most of the hours you'd be interested in taking a shower. It's a bit of a walk to (but mostly back from) Petra, but not a big deal for those who are hiking all day anyway. ;) Great deal for the money!
We had a great two nights here visiting Petra. The hotel is clean, well-equipped, and well-located. Great free breakfast, nice common space, and above all the staff is amazing. Ibrahim really went out of his way to make sure we had a great time while visiting. Fully recommended if you want to visit Petra on a budget.
Zero atmosphere and a difficult walk 15 mins uphill from main bus station and petra. Hot water was not working during my stay. I had a bad experience with the wadi rum tour for which was recommended by the hostel.
no-frills rooms and amenities, but more than adequate given what it costs to stay here. And Gail and Ibrahim and the rest of the staff were amazingly friendly and welcoming and helpful. I would absolutely stay here again.
Very nice staff but a bit noisy as our room was near the lobby. Breakfast was a little lacking.

Great option when visiting Petra. About a 15-20 min walk from Petra Visitor Centre. Clean rooms. No real complaints. Thanks!
A great place to stay when you're on a budget. Gail and Ibrahim are so awesome! They really took care of me. They picked up my bag from petra so I coukd explore right away. They also made sure I didn't get kidnapped by bedouins. Breakfast was good (yummy yogurt) and the packed lunch was great. They can arrange a Wadi Rum tour for a great price. Stay here for good people!
We loved this place. The rooms are simple, but equiped and clean, all of them with a bathroom, which is also in good conditions. The staff is just lovely! They have packed lunches if you want to go visit Petra and the breakfast is also good. The location is easy to find from the bus station. People there are really helpful and relaxed.
Great Hostel. Gail is so helpful and nice and the rest of the staff is very friendly as well. Just a short walk, or even a shorter cab ride to Petra, with a great view of the city from the rooftop. No complaints at all. A very reasonable breakfast and good internet. No internet in the rooms, which I enjoyed as a solo traveler because then it forces other people to interact with us solo travelers. They even phoned and reserved a spot for me on Jet Bus back to Amman. Highly recommend!
