Thank you for the feedback. Glad you like the place.




We loved this hostel! Cheap, good and a very good location! Close to the roman theater, citadel and the main street. Also the atmosphere is good, because they have a nice common area. you have to pay more for breakfast, but it is worth it! Breakfast is good and well served. Staff is helpful. We came back and forth to this hostel because amman was our gateway to explore jordan. They have a really nice taxi driver in case you want to plan tours with them.


Brilliant staff and a great home from home in Amman. Would certainly recommend.

Thank you Alberto for the nice words. It was a pleasure hosting you. Tarik


The common area is really great and the breakfast too. Tarik is really helpful and works his best to satisfy our needs. The tours offered are a good occasion to share experiences with other travellers. One of the best, highly recommend.

Dear Pierrette, It was our pleasure to host you here and we are glad that you enjoyed your time.


The hostel was spacious and well located within a 10 minute walk of the Roman Theatre. The staff were helpful enough. I'm afraid to say that there was not much of the backpacking atmosphere where you meet new people and make new friends etc

I am glad that you liked the hostel. You have stayed with us for only one night and I am sorry that you did not get the chance to meet other travellers. On that day we had only 7 other backpacker travellers and that is because now it is not the highest season. I wish we can host you again when there are more backpackers around. All the best,


The staff are amazing, they`d go out of their way to accommodate any of your needs or wishes.


I have just returned from my stay both at the beginning and the end of my tour of Jordan. Tarik, the hostel manager and staff members here made my stay incredible! They had answers to all my questions, helped me out managing the city my first few days, and by the end of my stay I felt like family! The hostel is clean and is located in a excellent area within less then five minutes walking from both downtown and to rainbow street. Boogie the cat was a added bonus. Would def come come back!

Thank you Aaron for the lovely review. It was a pleasure hosting you and making your stay memorable.


Nice hostel in Amman. Walking distance (up hill) to rainbow street and (if your keen) the citadel. Big rooms. Free breakfast. Staff can organise tours.


I did not like WC and showers, but the other things and hospitality was excellent! I definitely advice this hostel to travelers!

Dear Aghamir, Thank you for your feedback. A renovation for the shared bathroom is planned soon.


Really just a few star hostel, but there's not a large choice of hostels in Amman. Does the trick for a few nights.

The Sydney Hotel is a 1 star hotel that is considered a hostel. We have dorms and private rooms. It is a good value compared to others in the area. If there are anything you did not like, please write us back through email and we would love to hear your opinion.
