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?

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.

    Rafiki Hostel is in the centre of town, with great location around 1 km from the Petra entrance. There is amazing rooftop with the best view on Wadi Musa. Sunsets from there are the best part. I really enjoyed my staying there and would recommend it as a friendly and relaxed place.

    Staying at Rafiki was great. It's located 20 mins from the entrance of Petra, rooms were clean, and atmosphere was great. It was easy to meet other travelers there. Twaissi, the owner, was very accommodating and also checked up on me when I didn't come back to the hostel late. Make sure you sign up for the dinners, the food is delicious :)

    This hostel was great! They provided affordable home made meals, and the rooms were very nice. The views of the city are amazing, and the staff is incredible! The hostel is also within walking distance from Petra. They helped us book a bus from the hostel to Wadi Rum, but unfortunately the company messed up our reservation and never showed. They helped us get taxis to drive us there for no additional cost so we didn’t miss our tour.

    This is big hostel in the centre of town, (about a km from the Petra entrance). It felt unfinished as of April 22, but had a nice atmosphere with T the owner cooking communal meals and organising things for the guests. There is a fantastic top floor for socializing, with a kitchen for tea and coffee, and a great view over the whole town, and Petra in the distance. I enjoyed my stay there and would recommend it as a friendly and relaxed place where there are always some guests around to chat to.

    We enjoyed our stay. Warning: the property is under some minor renovations (door locks, faucets, etc.) that will be completed in June. That said, the staff was extremely helpful and made our stay as comfortable as possible.

    The rafiki was great, I arrived a day late but the staff were very understanding and let me check in early the next day when I arrived. There were no safe boxes in the rooms, but it's a hostel and I felt very comfortable leaving my things in the shared room all day. The location was great too, 20 minute walk up a steep(ish) hill from petra, but it's totally worth it for the views of the sunset! The bathroom is an en suit with the room. The staff were friendly and welcoming too. Thanks guys!

    We had a bad experience. First when we got there after a long day in Petra there is no one there, and we waited 30 plus minutes to check in. Then, there was no hot water in the shower (the guy later told us we needed to inform him before taking a shower...???). For the amount we paid and how the place is presented, we expected more.
