Great staff who were very helpful and spoke excellent English. In a good location and considering the price(we stayed in the dorm) very good value for money.

Excellent Hostel. Good Value and great location in Amman close to downtown, market and Rainbow street. The staff really went above and beyond to help us, they gave us suggestions of things to do and wrote down directions in Arabic for us to show to cab drivers. It is a quiet hostel and very lovely. Only negative in the whole place is one bathroom for the shared room, but that is what you get in a shared room!

Great location, nice common space and decent rooms. There aren't many frills, but it's a solid option for staying in Amman and a very good value for the money.

great hostel, good price, good location. no major issues! using the washing machine was cheap. bed was hard but doesn't really matter! staff were helpful in all our questions but a tiny weeny bit pushy with getting a cab service to stuff instead of just using the buses (aka to airport etc etc). would stay again!

This was a very good hostel. I arrived to Amman around 4 in the morning, and the staff at the hostel were able to let me in, despite the time! The hostel was very clean, tidy, and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The common room fosters a friendly and familial atmosphere. Most people staying there were foreign students or NGO workers who were looking for longer-term apartments/rentals in Amman. Excellent location - close to Rainbow Street and downtown.

Gail is AMAZING! I got food poisoning while I was in Wadi Musa (my worst hostel nightmare!) and Gail went out of her way to make me feel better, which I did eventually. The hostel is great too- excellent value on the private rooms! Perfect location.

It was very loud at night (11pm-2am). If you need or just want a decent night sleep it can be challenging. Also only having one shower and toilet can be difficult if the dorm is full. The night light was a great idea in the room. It meant people could move around without having the main light on.

Met some cool travelers in the lobby and enjoyed my stay here. This is not a fancy hostel but a good place to lay your head.

My time at Sydney hotel was fantastic. Dia' and Tarik are so good at what they do - making sure all of their guests are happy and the hotel in a good state with constant improvements being made. The common area is what makes this hotel really stand out - its the place to meet new people and have a great time! I highly recommend staying at Sydney hotel if you come to Amman - you wont find a better experience
