Property Description

Welcome to Carob Hostel!

Our hostel nestled in the heart of Amman and looks over the bustling city with panoramic views. Our aim has been to create a home away from home for anyone coming to Amman, hoping to give a true taste of Jordanian hospitality for every guest. At the hostel you can enjoy sitting on our large terrace, taking in the 180 degree views as the call for prayer echoes off the many hills that Amman is built on. Or join us in the living room where everyone comes together to chat and share stories surrounded by handmade crafts.

When you’re not at the hostel we are only 2 minutes from the Downtown and we would be glad to recommend the best places for you to visit. Whether it be to learn more about Amman (one of one of the oldest cities in the world), or where to try authentic Jordanian cuisine.
When city life starts to get under your skin we can help advise you on day trips to Jerash, Madaba or the Dead Sea where there are plenty of different price options and deals. And of course for your onward journey to Petra, Wadi Rum or Israel/Palestine we can help so that you have the smoothest journey possible.

    As soon my host came to greet me and show me to my room, he continued to showed me all the local spots and future plans for my travels around Jordan. I was one of the few people staying a the hostel so decided to get the couples room for myself with an amazing view of the city that shows the terrace. The place I'm sure prior to this pandemic, has to be a fun party place but I was happy with having most of the place to myself which has the best location in my opinion. See you again!

    Fantastic hostel with a unique atmosphere, you will want to live here. Close to downtown and the major attractions in Amman as well as boasting a prime location on the side of a hill with great views across to the adjacent neighbourhoods. Bedrooms are really comfy, the kitchen facilities are excellent and the common spaces beautifully furnished. Highly recommend this hostel if you're staying in Amman.

    I had such a wonderful stay at Carob Hostel. The owner is incredibly welcoming and friendly. He helped me out right away with everything I needed, any questions I had, recommendations in the area and in Jordan. He also went out of his way to help me plan trips and assisted with booking reservations for me in other areas in Jordan. The place is beautiful and has a great atmosphere, with an awesome view of the city and a great communal spaces. Such a good breakfast, as well.

    I've probably stayed at 40+ hostels over the last three years and without a doubt this one is at the top of my list. The owner and the staff are absolutely amazing. Spot on recommendations and cost effective things to see and do. The breakfast is outstanding and the atmosphere gives you a feeling of home away from home. Look no further in Amman and book here! Say hi to Li La the cat too. She's a treat.

    An excellent hostel with a cozy and relaxed atmosphere. Firas is the perfect host and gave so many great recommendations and ideas for things to see/do/eat in Amman and Jordan in general. One thing to bear in mind is that the hostel is located at the top of a steep hill, but it's a short climb and the view from the terrace overlooking the city makes it all worthwhile! Loved my time in Jordan and would for sure return!
