This is a very relaxed and friendly hostel. I received an e-mail as soon as I booked to provide further detail of how to get there which was nice. Stayed in a large dorm and they had individual lockers by each bed. Location wise it's not on the door step of Petra entrance, but it's near enough to easily walk there.
Having a native-english speaking host was a pleasant surprise and it enabled us to get really great advice on our future plans. We enjoyed our stay at the hostel and would use it again. Nice husband and wife team..keep up the god work.
You will be fine with gary, ibrahim, manuel and burk
the owner is really nice. and i like the terrace so much! it is a pity i went upstairs too late that i missed the beautiful peaceful sunset.. nice breakfast and valuable lunch set for hiking in Petra.
Like many, our goal was to find a budget stop-over accommodation where we could crash after long days in Petra. This completely served our purpose. Overall our stay was fine. The beds and bathrooms were clean, the owner, Gail, is very friendly and helpful, and the rooftop terrace is a great way to wind down the evening. Free breakfast is free breakfast. Nothing spectacular on the spread but we were grateful that Gail arranged for us to eat early so we could catch the bus to wadi rum.
Gail is taking care of all our needs; breakfast great and ready before time if we are leaving earlier. Perfect location. Sydney hostel in Amman and Saba'a hostel in Petra are the best ever hostels I've stayed in my many travels around the world.
The Saba'a Hotel's staff was very accommodating and friendly. Gail and another woman who was there helping out for a few days were both very welcoming and answered any questions that we had and gave us wonderful suggestions. The hotel has a terrace on the roof which was very nice as you could see most of the city and breakfast was great. My friends stayed in the mixed dorm which was clean; however, there were not enough outlets for all of us to charge our devices. Definitely recommended!
Nice hostel in the city center, close to the bus station. About 15-20 minutes walk to the entrance of Petra. Gail was very nice and helpful. Thank you for all of your information!
Great place and great price... Gail is EXCELLENT.rest assured, the place to be in Petra.
Great place i definitely recommended this Hotel if you re planing to stay in Wadi Musa its in a middle of t downdown and at 15min. walk to the main entrance for Petra , good breakfast and good staff
Really good hotel for the price and staff is super nice and helpful!!
My stay at thissaba'a hotel was very pleasant. excellenet
The breakfast is really nice and Gail really nice, she will help you in finding good solutions for your trip. The hotel is in a center, 20 - 25 minutes by walk from the site but uphill when coming back (so make sure you're not tired out ;) otherwise, the taxi takes you up for 1 dinar!
I wasn't most pleased with this hostel. My top bunk did not have a barrier so I did not sleep well afraid that I would roll off, not safe at all. Keys are left at reception but many times when staff weren't around I had to go behind the desk and get my own key, defeats the point really. Staff helped book a taxi to wadi rum but could have been a lot more informative as we ended up having big trouble at the drop off point and were annoyed we weren't pre warned of the situation.
Great owner, so welcoming and helpful!
Gail and Ibrahim are excellent hosts—friendly and helpful. I recommend the tuna pita sandwich bagged lunch.

Thank you for everything Gail! This place is fantastic. Met wonderful fellow travelers here, enjoyed all of Gail's recommendations for food and tours and absolutely loved how easy it was to get to and from Petra each day (1 JD for a cab ride or a 15 minute walk!). I would highly recommend the Saba'a Hostel (especially for solo travelers), and I will absolutely be staying there if I end up in Petra again!
Very good value for money. the host is very friendly and helpfull. breakfast was also good.
Nice hotel, friendly staff. i would come back
