Property Description

Rafiki Hostel is a recently opened hostel with a refreshing concept; Rafiki’s built by young back-packers for fellow back-packers. We tried to put everything we fantasized about during our trips into one facility. We offer a variety of amenities to make your stay with us as comfortable as possible. We provide complimentary high-speed internet access.

Here we know that location matters, a day started with an amazing view is a game changer. Isn’t that the whole point of roaming the earth? Therefore, Rafiki’s located 1.1 km from Petra; close enough to everything our guests would need, at the same time providing enough distance from the city’s noises. Thus guaranteeing a timeless dive into beautiful panoramas where Desert Mountains collide with sunset.

We are also practical and we value comfort; our rooms are well groomed and equipped with private bathrooms, we provide breakfast according to our guest needs. Also, we have an in-house restaurant with one and one goal only; is to give our guests the culinary dimension of a Petra stay.
Wait we are not done yet! Our Rafiki will includes very soon a garden, a farm, tea room, gym, rooftop and spa stay tuned.

    Fantastic and clean hostel with very nice and helpful staff and a very cheap place to stay for your visit to petra. Staff went above and beyond to recommend food places and to help plan for Petra. Beautiful rooftop to watch the sunset. Place is still being renovated but that did not effect our stay.

    Very pleased with our stay here. Very worth the money you pay, and ideal for your visit to Petra. The staff were lovely and helpful. They gave us a brief the night before we went to Petra with the other guests and help answer any queries you have. They are also doing renovations, didn’t cause us any difficulties and they will be changing a fair amount over time so don’t be discouraged by the other reviews about the renovations

    Rafiki is okay. But there's a lot to be improved. The two biggest issues for me was the lack of kitchen access and no drinking water. You have to ask the staff to put things in the fridge for you and get stuff out and they have nowhere you can fill up a water bottle. I've never ever seen a hostel where that's the case. If you get up early to go to petra you have no way to get water as shops are closed. The room was warm and the only places to plug chargers were in a big power board. Cheap price.

    It’s cheap so you get what you pay for. My room had no wall sockets. Room was super hot and no AC. Beds are rock solid. Bathroom facilities were really nice. The terrace is the highlight and is an awesome place to watch the sunrise & sunset. Obviously the location is the draw card. If you’re spending 1-2 days in Petra is definitely worth it.

    Rafikis hostel was okay. It’s the first place where I’ve had to pay extra money for towels. Also first place where there’s absolutely no soap in the bathrooms or lockers on the premises. Other than that the staff were friendly and the upstairs living area was cool. Enjoyed the shisha up there!
