Staff would smoke in the hotel lobby, which was also the only place to watch TV, eat or use the internet, so that was quite annoying. Also, the dorm rooms do not have locks on the doors, which I didn't like. Other than this, the staff was friendly and helpful, the dinners are GREAT, and the free shuttle to/from Petra every day is a huge perk.
This is my third time at this hostel, which is generally great. The manager is friendly and welcoming and the packed lunch service & free bus down to Petra are excellent. Would thoroughly recommend staying here. The only downside is the attitude of the man often in charge of the reception desk, who is rude to guests, tries to rip you off by lying about prices, & hides your passports 'for a joke'. He has been there every time I have stayed, and is increasingly unpleasant.

Hostel with nice and helpful staff we could trust. Meals can be ordered optional. Dinner buffet was really great (more than 20 side dishes of great food). Breakfast was a kind of "low budget" israli breakfast. It's located 20 minute walk downhill to the entrance of Petra and there are several little groceries near-by the hostel. Nice and comfortable atmopshere. There was kind of bedouin fire and music at one of two evenings.
VEry good location for Petre. YOU MUST eat at the hostel. One of the BEST MEAL I ever had :)
Yummy dinners, for small pricd 5JD Great free shuttle to and from Petra. Great stay everything I needed
The staff is amazing. They treat you as a guest in their home and will help you with anything. I got stung by a scorpion while staying in wadi musa and the owner drove me to the hospital, waited there, made sure everything went right, insisted on paying the bill and bought me fruit on the way back. You don't find hospitality like that anywhere. Also the atmosphere is perfect for meeting other back packers.
I had a great stay. The facilities were excellent. I had everything I needed. All the travelors were very happy to be back there at the end of the day. We enjoyed the buffet dinner together as we watched the sun set over the horizon.
