    Rafiki hostel is a gem in Petra. The owner is an extremely nice person and was helpful to arrange tours for me or to provide any facility I needed during my stay. The hostel itself is beautiful located overseeing the Petra hills and the city. The common area is extremely comfy to chill and meet other travelers. It’s 10mins walking distance to the entrance of Petra so extremely convenient.

    Had an absolutely amazing time at rafiki!! This is definitely the best hostel for socialising in Petra. You‘ll have family dinner events, a traditional dance lesson and a lot of space to get in touch with other people. (it’s about the atmosphere and not the beds, right). The hostel owner is very helpful and provides you a lot of local tips and infos - regarding the town itself and of course also concerning your visit of Petra. Also, you‘ll have enough warm/hot water in the bathrooms. Recommended

    GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY El hostal es excelente y el personal también. Ellos están dispuestos a ayudar en todo lo que sea necesario para que tengas una buena experiencia. Además la ubicación es mucho mejor que la de otros hostales, pues no queda muy lejos de la entrada de Petra. Finalmente, el hostal está en remodelación, pero cuenta con todas las amenidades (agua caliente, cama cómoda, área común, limpieza), menos AC/calentador lo cual no debe ser un problema.

    Although the place is 15 minutes far from the main entrance of Petra, but host is very friendly and helpful. He helped me talk to the bus driver when I was overcharged. He also gives me suggestions about traveling in Jordan. Great hostel to stay as a backpacker.

    The atmosphere here is warm, open and friendly. Feels like coming home, after a hard day trekking around Petra! The meeting hub is the rooftop lounge, with amazing view of sunset over Petra,(15 minute walk) as it sinks into darkness. The nearby shops and restaurants are also great. Highly recommended!

    One of the best hosts I have ever had in a hostel! There was a birthday party when we arrived and we immediately got invited to join. We learned how to dance jordan songs, we eat cake, laughed, danced Brazilian samba. It was a night to remeber before exploring Petra!

    Good place right in the centre of Wadi Musa, close to all the good shops and restaurants and about a 15 min walk to Petra visitor centre. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Atmosphere was good. Facilities a bit run down, but overall a good value for money.
